[SFM] Leaving The Lights by Shutdp [SFM] Leaving The Lights by Shutdp
This is one of those "shit happens" idea.
It started when I had an idea: I wanted to try and make the Rainbow Dash seen in one of the alternate timelines in the series finale by using multiple models and editing her body textures. I didn't know in what kind of environment I could put her, so I ended up choosing the Fallout Equestria world (that's the reason for the Stable 2 barding). Then one thing led to another and I ended up with this image.

Rainbow Dash is composed of 5 different models: the default one (with modified basetexture), Scootaloo for the mane on the back, Vinyl Scratch for the tail, Armored Blackjack for the wing and LittlePip for the barding (I didn't notice that there was an actual model just for that so.. yeah).
Overall the scene has a total of 32 models and 22 lights.

Mixing up different models was a fun challenge, also editing the textures can end up being a pain in the ass, especially considering that they're just a big block without any indications on which parts of the image are used on the model, so it's a big mess of just trying to find the spot of where each part of the model is, and then finding the good spot in that area.

That won't be possible since this is just a mix of various models done in Source Filmmaker itself, sorry :3

Very beautifully done the small details, the post processing, and the lighting really makes this work gorgeous

Thanks, I appreciate it :D
If by post-processing you mean editing in stuff like Photoshop or such, there's none of that in this :3
Photoshop was only used to edit the textures which were then replaced in-engine.
I'm not really the post-process guy, I did use photoshop on final renders a few times, but I prefer not to

This looks so amazing! I can tell a whole lot of work must have gone into it to have merged so many models to get Rainbow Dash to look as awesome as she does.

Thanks :D
It did take a while (the whole thing took almost 10 days to make, but I worked on it mostly during evenings because I work during the day) but the merging wasn't really that long to make, probably the first two days. The most time consuming part was editing the various textures, especially adding all the various scars, bruises and all that bloody stuff :3

The scarring on her face really drive home how tough her life is. Nice work.

Yeah I know, but that would have required to edit the model, while this was just a big bricolage of models so I couldn't really add that Sweating a little...
