Software used:
3ds Max, Photoshop

I copied this layer and set it to the Linear Dodge Blending Mode at opacity 100%. I then consistently applied the same filters to the image: Motion Blur (Amount: 20; Spin; Quality Best) and Gaussian Blur (Radius: 1.7 pixels). The result can be seen in Fig.15.

Once again, I copied the resulting layer and set it to the Hard Light Blending Mode at opacity 30%. And once again, I applied the same filters: Motion Blur (Amount: 50; Spin; Quality Best) and Gaussian Blur (Radius: 2 pixels). Here was the result (Fig.16).

I found the resulting picture to have too many red and yellow hues, and so in the lower left corner I added a few rough patches of dark blue shades. This zone was to play the role of the "solar terminator" (Fig.17).

A few more filters were added: Channel Mixer and Photo filter, which made the image more uniform in colour (Menu.05). I then edited the Curves and Colour Balance settings (Menu.06). The result was an image with alternate lighting zones, from the visual centre of the picture to its edges (Fig.18).

I have sacrificed a certain path of realism for the sake of entertainment.

Absolutely amazing ! it shocks me how some of the most awesome looking images are made with such simple techniques, Everything looks good the only thing I think is odd though is that the jet flame from unicorn 1 is orange, Flames don't get effected by its surrounding lights right ?
