Yep that’s what I would do. Nice work.

Wow, that IS really sexy. I was preparing for something less good, but I was pleasantly surprised.

you couldn’t have chosen a more unfitting picture xD

good tutorial though, quite useful. good to see you’ve grown up a bit.

Cool stuff Cheescurls.

This is absolutely amazing, simple and efficient. Definitly should be in the sticky. Rat’d wrench

yea i was just looking around for a quikie so i chose that one

Awesome job!

We need more tutorials.

I’ve seen this technique used before, it is quite simple, but affective.

I saw the noise filter and was like “fuck”

Everything went better than expected. :shobon:

Result looks good, though you neglected the ‘extremely-close-to-the-camera-holyshit-is-that-a-big-ass-bug-no-its-just-a-snowflake-shit-I-thought-that-was-a-bug-for-a-second’ snowflakes.

But still, excellent foundation, it’s very open-ended, leaving a lot of room for tweaking and the crystallize filter is a nice touch, too.

Hehe. Is “extremely-close-to-the-camera-holyshit-is-that-a-big-ass-bug-no-its-just-a-snowflake-shit-I-thought-that-was-a-bug-for-a-second” a technical term?

Here is a better example of my snow work

Yes, it’s patented.

:downsowned:

:laugh:

Damn, I guess that’s 5 cents for you then, lol

Well everything is amazing in that picture, nice tutorial btw.

HOLY SHIT IT’S MAH PICTURE IN THA TUTORIAL!
On Topic: Nice tutorial! I’ll be sure to refer to it when I decide to do snow, thanks for using my picture :slight_smile:

Fast and cool tutorial!

Some of the Photoshop tutorials works for Gimp as well.
Use a similar method in Gimp.
