Studying by Chritsel Studying by Chritsel
Too bad, Twilight is preoccupied with her studies. She could meet some interesting ponies instead.

This is, what I imagine, the backside of the castle could look like with the town in front, built on a terrace on the mountainside.
And Yes: Twilight doesn't know her friends yet. So this must be pre-show, I guess.

As always done in Blender(2.65), rendered as one single image in Cycles.
Textures made with Inkscape and Gimp2.
Post-work with Gimp2
I used Textures from [link] . Big thanks to the respective artists.
Mlp:FiM by Hasbro

Thanks for watching


ADDENDUM:
More than 24 hours up. Time for a little secret.
But first I'll answer one faq:

Q.Are there all of the mane6 on this pic?
A.Yes.
If you have trouble, finding them, then:
1st: download the full version!
2nd: Investigate the monument in the middle! It shows, where you can "see" them.;)

The only reason I found this picture is because I searched for Candy Apple on derpibooru. I'm so glad I did because I seem to have found an incredible artist.

Holy carp! Everything from the positioning of the mane 6 in relation to the sculpture to the dirt lodged in the carpet pile! That's attention to detail even Twilight could appreciate!

Christ, this has to be the single most detailed 3d render of a pony town I have ever seen. I can only imagine what sort of effort this took. My deepest respect.

ookay.
Absolutely amazing! You could probably use this setup for a dozen different scenes and angles!
And if somehow art like this made it into a game... well...
Let's just say that I would have some serious sleep deprivation.
Anyway, yay for you. Well done. Have my yes. All of it.

I can't believe Twilight missed something like this before the show.

Good thing she finally realized that Friendship can lead to something like this.

This was fun, i think you should even have put in a pony that resembled Waldo for the ironic fun of it. XD

I actually would welcome a 3D rendition of the ponies if Hasbro decided to go that route, if and only if they put this much detail.

Well, there are six satellites around the central planet.
Each of them connected to this planet.
Through a line.

Does that help?
Or does it confuse you even further?XD

It's a similar color scheme. Not Twilight;)

It still looked almost exactly like her.. plus, I don't remember a single pony having a similar colour scheme from the show. :I
But, if you say so, I guess you could be right. You did draw this entire canvas after all. :)

Not intentionally. I was just mixing color schemes for BG ponies. Later I noticed that I hit Spikes scheme randomly, but decided to let it be.
