Didn't see it coming by Shastro Didn't see it coming by Shastro
I though she cried on the inside?


This image is simply supposed to be an expression test, never really done much o those before, most of mah face poses are pretty basic. Though this model has almost zero rigging, so it was interesting having to hand model all that. 

Took 2 weeks to make XD I'll never get this stuff done in a timely manner

Put some extra detail into the hair that I'm quite proud of, as well as the lighting  :)

Made with Blender and Photoshop.

Pretty happy with it :)

Render Stuffs:
- Took 1:45 minutes on an i7 w/ 8 gigs of RAM
- Cycles at 1250? samples

Stay Awesome You Guys and Thank You for 100 watchers!

You also made a great work on her mane!!

Naw probably not, since the blend file is tucked away somewhere hard to find, but mostly I just cant spend the time to do another render of it rn.

Sorry bout that :D

Dude, I thought you made it in g-mod or something and improve it <somehow> in other programs but... it's blender, OMFG you're the first person I bumped into who makes blender ponies, and wow, these manes... I'm impressed! :D

That looks really great! I wonder what she's so sad about. If you don't mind me asking, how did you do that lighting? I really like the way the light highlights her face and butt.

Shastro Featured By Owner Edited Nov 2, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks so much! The lighting is an HDR with a single orangy color, nothing too complex or special. The trick was the HDR image, cheap and dirty way to get cool lighting. Though use a mapping node combined with a generated UV coordinates vector input to allow you to rotate and shift the HDR to get the best lighting possible from it!

Here is a screenshot of the HDR setup: i.imgur.com/8DW4JUR.jpg

If you have a G+ I could add you to a group chat with me dpplad and Nyte Skye! We're building up a small feedback chat room for CG artists!

The compositor has a glow on for the cool effect.

Good luck on future blendevours!

Thanks! Blender has much better rendering capabilities than SFM but it does have a very steep learning curve, and will take years and years to get to the level that the true pros are at: www.blenderguru.com/articles/t…

But its worth it and you can do some really cool things, though you wont find the same pony community that you will for blender as you will for SFM and most of the things you make will have to be from scratch, there are very little mlp blender models.

I'd consider it, but if you like SFM than I'd say stick with it.

Lemme know though I can give you some pointers on where to look for advice and feedback, should you consider it.

Makes you wonder why there are hardly any blender animators, if any. Maybe every pony just needs to see how good it is...?

There is only about one really good one I can think of, there are a few others out there, but non with the polish that this one does: www.youtube.com/watch?v=SYWU8F…

I'd love to make one some day, but they just take too much time and resources :T

There are alot of people who underestimate blenders potential, but gotta love some of the great tools available with something like Maya or Max that aren't in blender quite just yet.
