Her Own Content by Whitestar1802 Her Own Content by Whitestar1802
"Oh Shining Armor~! Won't you please help me with this corset? :heart: "

As the thid Tudor Pony I've drawn, this is now officially a series! :la: I present to you, Tudor Cadance!

Since the portrait I used for Celestia's dress was of Queen Elizabeth at age 13, I didn't get to fully paint the over the top, outrageous fashions she was known for when she was a full on queen. However, I stumbled upon a pic of the good queen in a dress that resembled the wedding dress in the playset Cadance first came out in, and decided to use it. You simply can't have a series of Tudor portraits without starched collars and those strange pendants that hang from the skirts.

I kind of cheated a bit with Cadance's hair, and refferenced a screenshot from Elizabeth: the Golden Age to help with the shades. The movie was horribly innacurate, but at least they got the fashions and Elizabeth's wigs right (as far as I can tell).

Fun Fact: The title of this picture, "Her Own Content" is actually an excerpt from a message written beneath "An Allegory of the Tudor Succession", a painting Queen Elizabeth I gave to Sir Francis Walsingham as a gift. The full passage reads "The Queen to Walsingham this tablet sent; Mark of her people's and her own content." The painting can be seen here: [link]

Up next: Lord Solaris as Henry VIII!

Original portrait: [link]

Enjoy! :D

This is... wow.
Is it bad that I think Candence looks kind of cute with her mane like that.
The outfit suits her surprisingly well too.
Very nice work.

Wow....I don't understand all the comments about her hair, I think it looks brilliant! Just like a cute (purple) mini queen Bess! Her dress and jewelry are amazing, these Tudor ponies of yours really are fabulous :D.
Imagine what kind of comments you'd get if you'd decided to draw Georgian ponies! xD
I hope you keep going with this series!

I don't mind the hair, I think its the face for me, just to plain, lacking dimension. Maybe if it was done in a profile?

:iconwhitestar1802:
Whitestar1802 Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah, probably. I really wanted to try drawing a pony's face from the front though, since I pretty much always draw them with full profiles or 3/4 views. ^^;

No offense but the hair curls make it look... stupid... But the level of detail is simply amazing and the fact that you actually nailed all those curls is awesome :D
I'd love to see more of your artwork, seeing as it's one of the most detailed i've ever seen in this fandom!

Thanks. ^^; I agree with the hair curls. I was trying for something accurate, and thought it might end up looking similar to Cadance's wedding day hairstyle, but....meh, y'know how it is. :lol:

i'm sorry Cadence, no matter how cute you are any other time the hair still makes you look stupid. (No offense to the artest of course, I just don't like the hair.) I bet shining armour would like to help with the corset ;3

This looks excellent! :)

I was going to make a comment about her strongly reminding me of Queen Elizabeth, but then I read all the way through your comment. So I guess I'll just have to congratulate you on capturing her highness' air and sense of presence.

For some reason I'm really keen on how you did her sleeves. That and her hair look like they must have been a PAIN to try and translate over. But you did it quite well.
