Too bad, Twilight is preoccupied with her studies. She could meet some interesting ponies instead.

This is, what I imagine, the backside of the castle could look like with the town in front, built on a terrace on the mountainside.
And Yes: Twilight doesn't know her friends yet. So this must be pre-show, I guess.

As always done in Blender(2.65), rendered as one single image in Cycles.
Textures made with Inkscape and Gimp2.
Post-work with Gimp2
I used Textures from [link] . Big thanks to the respective artists.

Thanks for watching

More than 24 hours up. Time for a little secret.
But first I'll answer one faq:

Q.Are there all of the mane6 on this pic?
If you have trouble, finding them, then:
1st: download the full version!
2nd: Investigate the monument in the middle! It shows, where you can "see" them.;)

I've found Twilight, Pinkie, Fluttershy, Apple Jack, and Rainbow Dash, but where the hay is Rarity?

You should re-render this with modern hardware in a bigger resolution!

That is an insane amount of detail.

10,000 piece jigsaw puzzle amounts of detail.

If this was some sort of game map, I would love to explore it.

I've only discovered this today. I think it's a contender for the top of my all-time favorites!  :D
If ever there was a big budget game or moive like this. I'd buy it.

The only reason I found this picture is because I searched for Candy Apple on derpibooru. I'm so glad I did because I seem to have found an incredible artist.

Holy carp! Everything from the positioning of the mane 6 in relation to the sculpture to the dirt lodged in the carpet pile! That's attention to detail even Twilight could appreciate!

Reminds me of two levels from Sly 4.

Christ, this has to be the single most detailed 3d render of a pony town I have ever seen. I can only imagine what sort of effort this took. My deepest respect.

*jaw drops* ...
Absolutely amazing! You could probably use this setup for a dozen different scenes and angles!
And if somehow art like this made it into a game... well...
Let's just say that I would have some serious sleep deprivation.
Anyway, yay for you. Well done. Have my yes. All of it.

The detail in this is incredible!! Just saw this featured on EqD. I'm on my phone atm; can't wait to get home and check this out on the big monitor.
