I, Personally Think This is AMAZING, AMAZING Shading, AMAZING DeTAIL ( input drum ) -cough cough- anyway... Someone Thought It Was SOOOO Good They Made A Base Out Of It! The Tail Is ( Possibly ) Made Of Strait Lines Near The End, But I Think That You Need To Make More Of This, This Art Is Beautiful, And I Think That If You Put This In A Art Gallery, You Would Get Famous Overnight. Maybe Try And Take OC Requests So You Can Make A Impact On Others OC's, but either way Your Art Is Great!!! So Keep Up The Good Work! <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/>

Beautiful, unique, totally cute! Sincerely loved! Never seen this same arts. But the landscape is not perfect, but beyond that Cadence was perfect. I liked the eyes, you really are an artist! Congratulations. I could not do this nor being paid (even though I could make a paper xD)! I would like to see how you do Traditional art! You do not see this type of art anywhere, friend! Of course not I do the same! Already in the face if you see my gallery once again enjoying arts, thanks for listening, MinaBra123. Love your arts! < < 3 3 3 3

Above the boutiques and cafeterias of Canterlot, positioned just outside Celestia's bedroom, is a pristine garden where every doubt or worry vanishes into mist, reserved by five princesses and their closest relatives for themselves. As she caresses (using her mind's calming blue energy) a heart-shaped lollipop imbued with her own love charm, Cadance widens her stance, knowing that her emotions of the next few moments could overwhelm her consciousness. Her iris dilates immediately after her tongue makes contact with the magical cocktail; she is pleased about the charm working. Of course, alternative interpretations exist, but every element in this piece - her enigmatic expression, to name one - points towards the licking and thus a singular conclusion: her love of love.

Cadance's proportions here lie in between her "foalsitter" form in S2E25 and her "modern" form seen everywhere else. This combination, besides appearing marginally better than its sources, is emphasised via the preponderance of thick verticals, several networks of thinner horizontal/oblique lines, and some fluff patches. Her colours are bright but not an eyesore, the soft shading and highlights imparting a matte finish as well as that three-dimensional look. While not this work's subject matter, the background helps in unifying her different attributes into one solid character. Since most information about Cadance deals with her public activities, pictures of her private life such as this are nothing but refreshing.

Being the creator of the vector version of this image, I think this is as good a reference as anypony could hope for.

I love this artwork. It's nice because it is the only artwork you've seen ever. It's originality is good and the drawing is good itself. Shading is outstanding as it is the one the brings out the 3d. Hair detail is awesome and the blue ribbon at the tail as well. It brings out the effect that it is tied on the tail of cadance. The name of the title is not really relating to the picture itself. It's more like cadance on a break licking ice cream. The ponytail is also too high on cadance as well and the leg looks big while the front hoof is thin. The horn is also too short but the rest is on proportion. Eye reflection effect is superb as usual background looks very detailed. What I really like about it is that you didn't miss out and details on this awesome piece of art!!!! I like the fur effect as well. I really think you did a great job on this!!!! It's originality is strong for me!! I really like your work. All I can say to you is....... Keep up the excellent work!!!!! XD

KP, you've done it again. Another amazing peice of artwork! The originality is splendid! Young cadence is definitly something i would love to see more of! The best part about your artwork is the shading and i can see that many of us are attracted to that great 3d effect you create with the shading. I also love how you create that realistic effect in which you put in fur here and there......or is it hair? <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/>

I also like how you make unicorn aura. You capture the magic feeling in it, for which i greatly admire. I like the round and how you colored it to seem like early spring, with dew here and there! I LOVE IT! The impact of this artwork is great, how you brought the feeling if cadence just chilling outside.

Now there is however some flaws in which i was very dissapointed.
That mountain in the backround is cartoony. The bushes nearing the top too is a bit weird. Its either you got lazy or you're running out of time which i completely understand since your artwork is in very high demand. The cartoony style ruins your wonderful realistic cadence but i have to say good job with the layering.

Oh and the tail and mane are a little blocky near the end. They look like they've been glued at the end.

In the end, the visuals were sent down by the background but the originality is off the charts! Impact was clear and distinct and the technique was unique! It was koshadowsquirrel technique! Who would argue with that technique?!

<img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/> you did a great job!

Thank you very much for your critique :)
I'm happy that you like this picture you Cadance.

You are right about the background - it was rushed, without too much concern for details.
After reading your critique , I have added a little shading to it and some mist to separated the bushes.

The swirls at the end of her mane and tail are now a little smoother too. Thank you for pointing that out.

I'm not an artist so I can't give anything resembling Pi-Rex's informed review but I'll give it a shot regardless by saying out loud what I think while looking at it and writing it down on the fly on the principle that even the dumbass perspective can be useful and I can deliver exactly that though hopefully with fewer lengthy run-on sentences like this one.

"Huh, a pretty Cadance pic, close to on-model with increased detail and added bows and a prop, which is fine. Its background looks like the show given the Bob Ross treatment except the sky maybe needs to be more than just a gradient. The fact that she appears to be the halves of two ponies standing at very different angles that have been glued together in the middle is something that I can't unsee and something about the way she's licking that sucker is a tinge odd but that might be my allergy to mlp R34 flaring up.

On her ear there's a hint of the 'fur looks like oiled skin' thing that a lot of pony and anthro artists do and her mane/tail are excessively smooth and shiny like they're made of molded plastic, but the way her coat kicks up fuzzily at sharp angles is a nice touch, she's shaded well, and her magic is the right color.

Overall I like it and I'll definitely check out the rest of this person's gallery."

Thank you very much for your critique :D
I'm happy that you like it.

I have thought about the sky for a while and added a few unobtrusive clouds to make it less blank without adding too many distractions.

I see what you mean by "two different angles" - probably caused by the way the wing was drawn. After trying to figure out how to better depict a wing from that angle I have changed it and hope that the pose works better now.

The first thing that jumped out at me when I looked at this was your gorgeous shading. You understand light sources very well, especially the beautiful tail and mane. Well done. I'd also like to compliment on the background - it fits very nicely with the picture, yet isn't so complicated that it drowns out the foreground.
The only thing I will note is that I have seen other deviants with a very similar painting style. I'm not saying that as an insult or a critique - I would just like to encourage a little bit more originality and creativity in the way you express yourself on canvas.
Overall, this is a very nice piece and I definitely envy your painting abilities! <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/>
