Fluttershy Clouds [WIP 3] by Shastro Fluttershy Clouds [WIP 3] by Shastro
This ones a little different from the rest and does represent a pretty large amount of changes, but don't worry about the (pretty bad) lens flare, its just a place holder, but this also means that I finally got Photoshop! YAY! Post-Production is very very important to CGI and without it I'm sure 90% of anything outputted by CG software would look like crap (in comparison)

    Changes Made from the previous version
        -
Tweaked Colorization in the compositor (still needs a lot of work though)
        -First pass at combining Render Layers in Photoshop
        -Added second particle system to lower cloud platform, but oddly enough seems to be stuck on the opposite side of the platform (why its not in render)
        -Removed top cloud layer particle system (wasn't supposed to be there)
        -Changed clouds slightly
        -Added (very hastily) lens flare
    Plans for next version
    -
More and better clouds (to get a tunnel like effect
    -More tweaking of textures and densities
    -Colorization (less purple)
    -Better Sub-Surface Scattering on Flutter shy
    -Better Hair on Flutter shy (maybe)
    -Better Lens Flare
    -Better Backround integration
    -Possible Dof on Fluttershy (not sure)
    -And spending literally the next few years of my life on this image

    Render Information
    -
Took 12 hours and 36 minutes to render at 1000 samples
    -Rendered on CPU (GPU Crashes)
    -I have 8 gigs of RAM, an Nvidia GTX 860m, and an i7 2.4-3.6 Ghz Proccessor

    Notes
    
        
I'm gonna be postponing this image until I finish up something for EQD Daily's Friend Off (been working on it for a while)
        Other than that all I can say is that THIS IMAGE HAS BEEN IN THE WORKS SINCE FRIGGIN NOVEMBER! WHEN WILL IT END! I started the concepts in November, then waited until I had enough free time (Christmas Break, and yes I'm still in High school) Even then I didn't;t upload it until just recently.

    AND AS ALWAYS STAY AWOSOME! EXPECCIALLY IF YOU READ THIS FAR DOWN! BECAUSE HOLY CRAP WHO READS THIS STUFF!?!

Three cheers for acquiring Photoshop! It's a beautiful thing. You get the Creative Cloud Edition?

Render times... the sitting, waiting, and praying nothing goes wrong stage! This is looking great though. The new implementations sound pretty ambitious. Best of luck, man!

Oh, and I TOTALLY READ THAT STUFF!
Heh.

Yay Photoshop! and yes I did get the CC edition

Yeah looking at that list now it does seem quit ambitious, but its what I want to do with it, whether or not I will be able to remains to be seen (I would like to get this done before 5 WIPs, its kinda lame to have a gallery made up of mostly WIP's, on that note I may remove them in the future)

AND THANK YOU FOR TOTALLY READING THAT STUFF! XD means I didn't waste that much time :)
