A quick play trying to figure out how to do nice backlighting in DS, now I'm back on my own PC. The mane takes the lighting quite well, especially with some of the Mane Flare morph dialled in. This isn't a final render- you can see the render quality is cranked right down. I've got it running a better quality render right now. I'm rendering with a sky dome but inserting a backdrop in postwork, matching (or trying to match) the sun position to the backlight spotlight position.
