Rarity by IG-64 Rarity by IG-64
The first of a series. I had hoped to have it done before the season finale but it took quite a bit longer than that. I still plan on doing all of the main cast, and perhaps some extras. Full view is 3840 x 2160.

EDIT: For all of the "what program did you use?" questions: I used 3ds max :)

Rarity by ~IG-64 is a top notch 3-Dimensional Fan Art. The details are simply fantastic, but I'm mostly impressed by Rarity's mane and tail and the reflections on her eye. ( Featured by alexandrasalas )

3DS Max?
On the 3DS system?

It stands for 3D Studio Max, it's a computer graphics program that's been around for a long time.

Oh.
In difficulty, how would you rate it?

It depends on the amount of experience you have with 3D. As far as 3D programs go I found it relatively easy to pick up. I think the UI is the most intuitive compared to other programs but I may be biased as it's the one I use the most. If you're new to 3D stuff and are looking for something free, try Blender.

HOW IN THE BUCK DID YOU GET THOSE HAIR PARTICLES TO WORK!!

Maybe 3DS max has something blender is lacking, but WOW

Wow! Sweet thats lookin awesome! 

The hair almost has a painted look to it. 

I can imagine how i would go about doing something similar, but it would be a very time consuming process. Not sure though it has some insane detail in it.

This is by far the best 3D model of Rarity I've seen! Are you going to continue to work on other ponies?

Anyway, could I ask you to render the images of your Rarity without the glasses from several different angles/views? Thanks!

Thanks! Yes, I am working on more pony renders still. I cannot do any more renders of Rarity at the moment as I am busy with other things. I may revisit Rarity in the future. If you just need the angles for reference, check out the profile views here: ig-64.deviantart.com/art/Pony-…

This has got to be the #1 best animated image of Rarity ever to be made. This looks far better than even an image made with Source Film Maker. It looks abso-f***ing-lutely fantastic

This is where I imagine video game graphics going when designers decide there's no further point in making them any more detailed. Nice! I wonder what it'd be like to see the actual show done this way. Closest I've seen are some animations done with some similar (but lower quality than this rendering) animations on YouTube.

... Sometimes... I hate my critical outlook...

This is beautiful, absolutely beautiful...

But it looks like she's got a over-glorified mohawk (which upon review, it typically does look like that unless you get a /good/ front view of her...
And I can't be sure if the swirls are on the correct side or not...

Oh wait... these issues are in the show too... so I guess this is perfect. 

... *awkward moment when everything is said and notsurewatdo* ...
