Well I wasn't able to find a better name for this... I'm also not happy at all how this picture turned out...
Still decided to upload it tho so it won't be wasted rendering time.

Also, first time I'll enable "Premium Content" on a picture. If you want to support me download it via the points button, if you prefer the free version you can GRAB IT HERE.
The Premium Download will also contain the raw, unedited file where I corrected nothing and directly out of Source Filmmaker. As said, it's optional.

And as always, have some tech-nerd stats:
General Work Time (idea to finish): ~15 hours (split all over a week)
SFM: ~13,5 hours
Rendering (7680x4320): ~1 hour
GIMP:~0,5 hours
Map Name: sfm_flatvoid_grass_dark.bsp

FunFact: I've decided to render this in 7680x4320 resulting in a 126MB big PNG, after compression with GIMP it's only 11MB.
FunFact 2: ALL, really ALL grass models here are placed by hands. Over 400 of them. Making a particle was too complicated for me :P
Image size
7680x4320px 11.62 MB

This is really greatly made, a lot of effort from you must been made to do this.. its really interesting piece I like it.
It kinda reminds my picture that I put my work to, a very different version of sad Twi.

Oui, not this again...I think everyone knows by now: Megan McCarthy herself has confirmed in a twitter blog that Twilight is not immortal and will not outlive her friends.

Still, despite that, this is a good, emotional image. Nice job.

I cant believe someone would take 15 hours to make a picture in SFM.

It's just a "somewhat accurate" thing. Could've been 10 hours, could've been more but also less. I worked split over a week on that thing and thus I can't tell how many hours went into this anymore.

It might not be canon, but it's an interesting/sad concept.
