So there are some characteristics that standout from her character to me. Those would definitely be caring, passionate, self sacrificing, patient, and smart. We don't get to know much about her from the show's standpoint asides the fact that she is the elementary teacher. They never really have shed light upon her past too much either. So here's hoping they give her the spotlight in a upcoming episode and not like hearts and hooves day that was a funny episode but it seemed kind of forced. I began liking her character a lot from reading several fanfics on her character and *not Cheerilee's Garden*...

Well its artworks like this and from one of the fanfics I read. It almost seems like Cheerilee is one of those characters who is really under-appreciated. Going back to the episode where the CMC remarked to her and was surprised she did not have a special somepony her facial expression idk felt like it gave a bit more depth to her character then. Like she wears a happy front at times but inside she may not be happy with herself. *Quoted from philo5* " Cheerilee never gets invited to parties. She wasn't at the Gala or the wedding and I can't recall any other party in which she was present. And she stayed home on Nightmare Night.
Anyway, this (in my mind) would be her dress she'd wear if she ever got an invite to a party. It took a long time to get this design right, or at least to a point at which I could say, "Yep, that's a dress Cheerilee would wear." Obviously it's based heavily on her colors and her cutie mark.
It's OK, Cheerilee. For now you'll just have to go back to a world of making lesson plans, grading homework, bratty students, snobby parents, and intrusive crusaders. And not having a special somepony. Just keep up that brave and cheery facade and things will turn around for you eventually."
So yeah those are a lot of reasons I like her character a lot :3. Some ways I see myself kind of like her maybe so... All in all I did not expect to make this long at all but I let myself get the best of me xD!
Have one last awesome drawing!
