The Diamond Empress by RussianKolz The Diamond Empress by RussianKolz
Ruler of the Crystal Empire and the Norther Territories.
----
I should be working on other things but shinies :iconheplz:
I drew from my first design of Cadence in armor, and then refined it. Consider it more ceremonial armor than practical fighting armor.
Final drawing will have a background but for now..neh.

I don't think that Cadence is a crystal princess! I think that she is a princess OF LOVE!!!

As her cutie mark implies, her heart is hard as diamond and cold as ice. :)

There is just something that I find extremely cool about having Princess Cadence in armor! I also believe that the armor you designed is awesome and resonates well with Cadence! The lovely lighting and shading details really bring this piece to life and I also love the aggresive character design! Your style is awesome and I would love to see more! Great work! Kind regards, Princess Luna

Just stunning. Hope she doesn't turn in "Tyrant" Empress. That would probably, maybe, slightly, oh I don't know......BAAAD!!!
"AAAAAHHHHH Tyrant Cadance!!! Ruunn to the hills!!"
"Can't, all the hills are to the NORTH."
"....We're doomed."

Sorry RussianKolz I couldn't resist. The way her armor looks is great, the gold and dark cyan colors work really well. The shading on her mane and tail are wonderfully done as well as the expression on her face. Another job well done.
