Hi there - this pic was made for ImagineFX magazine workshop section. Featured in upcoming issue 27, that should be on the market around January 12 so if you can get it - get it :] Workshop is very extensive, showing my workflow and how I do the things I do, all with 30+ screenshot from production and few useful tips :] Hope you gonna like it.
I tried to tell a little more story with this picure so there are few elements that you can spot and connect into a nice storyline
Image was done by hand in Photoshop, few references used but nothing significant. And I know that reflection in icicle is not realistic, but I did it on purpose to point something out ;]
Crits and comments always welcome and for all you deviantart users there is tiny mini contest about story told in this image. Check it out: here
And some closeups:
