thanks to xx Stacey xx @ dA for the model stock, and flashtucka@dA for brushes.

my first attempt at this. there aren't too many tutorials out there to teach how to do this effect. seems they all repeat themselves. So i just mixed a few things from each of the tuts and added my own spin to them.

i do realize my model stock is one widely used, but i liked the "frozen" look to her face.

changed the icicles to form more to the face. took the ice effects off of the nose and lips as it didn't conform to what i was wanting. Might change it again yet... :P not quite satisfied still.
Thanks to Le-Rain@deviantart for the winter brushes i modified a bit. (5 years and 2505 days ago)
