Power of the Light (3D render) by Duskie-06 Power of the Light (3D render) by Duskie-06
Behold! Princess Celestia and her power of the light! Her horn's magic to raise the Sun is so powerful that it is so bright!

Finally completed! Wow... this took me quite a long time to finally crack the code to make her mane and tail comprise of three different colours. Here is a sample WIP of what I did for the pink segment of her tail:

Princess Celestia WIP by Universe-of-Dusk 

Pretty interesting isn't it. It wasn't an easy task.

Not to mention, I also cancelled a 4 hour render two times, just because the scene is either too noisy (the white sandy dots in the render), too bright, too dark, or Celestia's color doesn't contrast well with the background! It's such a heartache!

If you look closely, I actually also made her horn a light emitter, as magic is being used at the moment. Here is how her horn looks like when the emitter is off and on:

Horn without magic by Universe-of-Dusk Horn with magic by Universe-of-Dusk 

The materials used here are glass (specular) and shiny plastic (phong), just like what I did with my Nightmare Moon in my previous artwork here: Power of the Night (3D render) by Universe-of-Dusk 

3D modeling program used: Sketchup Pro 2013
Renderer used: Indigo Renderer
Rendering time: 5 hours and 30 minutes

Critiques and comments are welcome! I hope you like it! :D (Big Grin)

Woah, this looks amazing! I love what you've done! :D
How long did it take to get fluent enough with Sketchup and Indigo to get to this point?

Wow! Thanks so much for faving and commenting, I really appreciate them a lot! Well, it took me around 6 years at that time before getting to this quality. However, there is still a lot of room for improvement, as there are also other things like aperture diffraction that I have missed out on. Once again, wow, thanks so much! <3

Well, I think I have a lot of catching-up to do then! :D
I'd love to be able to do what you have been doing with 3D models.

Yeah, just start small and keep practicing! I believe you'll get there.

By the way, I really love your gallery, as you make really nice animations of pony paintings. I was at one of your streams and saw how you do them and has inspired me to do something like that in the future. How long have you been doing this animation? ^^

It's imported from SFM, then I redesigned her mane and tail and optimized them (including all other textures) for the rendering process. :D

Haha! I initially wanted to input the texts: "Power of the Light" into the interface of this artwork, but then I changed my mind, because I think it looks better without them. Then, I forgot to remove it from the description. Well... it has been updated accordingly! :D
