Lair of the Heart by Lextsy Lair of the Heart by Lextsy
I can barely get down a single upload a month, ridiculous! Have a Crystal Heart.

This is my recreation of the location of the Crystal Heart in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic's Season 3 premier.

The only thing that's missing is the staircase. I tried to make it as accurate as possible as I could in 3D space. The light streaks that cross the Crystal Heart could not be done without creating a texture map with varied results so instead a refraction and reflection take it's place. The floor in the show's scene is just a flat blue with a streak or two. I've converted it to a shiny surface with a minor wave to give it a full feel. The crystal columns also have a refraction since a flat-blue with basic shading looked stale.

Yes there are shadows and no there is no sun XD

This scene actually only took a few hours to create. It was all done in spare time between classes. Final render time was 3 hours and 1 minute. Settings were 2x2/8x8/1% AA with 100% Accurate AO at 2880x1800, includes volumetrics, amplitude 4.0 refractions, lots of reflections bump maps and a physical sky with shadow.

Oh and here's a small video of it in lower quality (less AA, no AO, no physical sky and shadow) [link]
