Its just rolled out sheets of clay cut into fancy shapes and layered up to create the effect. The trick is in the painting. Getting the highlights and shading in the right place creates a neat effect.

I kinda hope we get to see some of that badassedry before seasons end. I really like Cadance, but she's as static as any background pony, maybe even more so.

Heavily watered down paints done in lots of layers. Time consuming but well worth it for the end result.

There's something about Cadance in armor that out-badasses even Celestia and Luna. Somehow she just looks natural wearing it. A hidden character trait? Maybe we'll find out.

Lovely work. She looks remarkably show-accurate here, and the armor looks beautifully done indeed. Wonderful detailing work and shaping of the body, the hair and the wings, as well as the painting. Great job!
