[SFM] Immortal Bookhorse



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

Oh... My this is something, this is something indeed. Since I am not one to lollygag when doing this I'll cut straight to the chase.

Vision 3.5
Very beautiful, yet it at the same time a grim reminder of the inevitable demise. It's a bittersweet goodbye.

Originality 2.5
Well the be fair there's no shortage of art demonstrating the fact Twilight's an alicorn now, and she'll eventually have to cope with the loss of her friends. So to be honest it's not the most original work.

Technique 4.5
Oh my this looks fantastic. Despite the lack in originality it really makes up with technique. The posing's wonderful and the rain alongside making everything have that wet, almost glossy feel. It's probably one of the best SFM images I've seen when it comes to the technique.

Impact 4
To be honest this did kinda-sorta tugged at me when I saw it.
It's a very sad, gloom and sorrowful piece, but personally I think it adds to the beauty in this case.

Very well done.
