Fluttershy's Jungle by Saxm13 Fluttershy's Jungle by Saxm13
Fluttershy in a forest and OH MY GLOB THIS TOOK FOREVER TO RENDER 2 DAYS TO RENDER.

Sorry no 1080p this time. Computer couldn't handle that much detail so I had to kick it everything down a few notches resulting in some lost background colour. =( Hopefully i can fix it somehow!

-gmod ponies belong to :iconkp-shadowsquirrel:

-environments created in Vue xStream 10

-EDIT: changed brightness/constrast to add a little more colour

Fave-ing this for the setting. A couple things are kind of bugging me, though. First, Fluttershy looks out of place because she's so smooth and the rest of the scene is so organic and textured, but I don't know how much control you had over that because you got the model from somewhere else. The other thing is that the warm spotlight on her is a bit jarring. The overall scene looks to me like a foggy, misty forest at dawn, but the spotlight makes it seem like the sun is shining directly on her, like through a break in the clouds at midday. My problem is not that your setting isn't what I want it to be (if that makes any sense). I understand that the intent is to draw attention to Fluttershy, but the fact that the warm colors are only in that one place disconnects it from the rest of the image. I think that having multiple lights, though not quite as bright or warm as the one on Fluttershy, shining through the leaves in the background would pull the image together while keeping the focus on her.

I apologize if I'm coming across harshly, because I really like this piece. The forest is gorgeous. It reminds me of some Japanese gardens I've seen, and it projects the same kind of mystic calm that I love about them. Fluttershy's pose and the layout of the terrain serve to draw the viewer deeper into the scene as well.

In short, excellent work on the models, layout, and mood, and in the future try to focus on the unity of the image. Great work!

Do you still have all the raw files for this? I'm looking for a 1080p version for my new background, and this is amazing :)

Found by Andreas Tweet twitter.com/AndreaLibman/statu… and a reverse Google Image Search

When I firsted rendered this picture, my computer couldn't handle 1080p at the time. (Now doing 4K lol).

Unfortunately I had a data crash a while back that resulted in the loss of most of my old projects. =(

Sorry man. Just have to stretch it.

Wish I could afford a 12 core....

All scenes are rendered in Vue xStream unless specified otherwise.

Back when I made this scene I only had one computer so everything took waaay longer. Now I have a bunch of computers for rendering. It'd just be a matter of finding the time to re-render the scene!

Thanks very much for the offer though! =D

Fine by me. As I said, it's already my screen's native resolution. It couldn't be any better for me. Ergo my luck. Nice wallpaper, by the way! Freaking amazingly done. Still not sure how Gmod could have played a part in this masterpiece though....

Ah, okay.
But the pony is not Gmod though, it's a model which someone rigged for Gmod and for other programs, it's not made only for Gmod. ;)
