Ice People 2018 - Photoshop Contest [12 entries]

voting ends in









Contest goal:

Baby, it's cold outside! Based on this statement, your goal is to take an image of a one or more people and turn them into ice. Cover them in snow, turn their skin blue, make them look like an ice sculpture, melting or whole. It's up to you. Good luck!

You might need a little help or inspiration with this, so here are some tutorials to help you achieve some "chilling" effects:
Tutorial 1: Make people look frozen
Tutorial 2: Ice Mask
Tutorial 3: Create a chilling photoshop manipulation

Status: vote only.

BWR: So the people can't have snow or ice on them before we chop them? Good contest idea. ( 17 days ago )
still26: I am going crazy with this contest. Thanks a lot ( 15 days ago )
Contest Moderator: @BWR I don't see the problem if they do, the goal is to turn people into ice. Some additional snow to start with shouldn't be a problem IMHO. ( 15 days ago )
still26: Does anyone out there have another link on how to do this, one that a technically challenged individual could understand? ( 14 days ago )
skyangel: @ Still26.... If you put the words "frozen effect photoshop" into the You Tube search, you will find quite a few videos on how to achieve different versions of it. ( 14 days ago )
still26: I will do that tomorrow, thank you Skyangel. ( 13 days ago )

I used different filters, layer styles and tools from Photoshop. The snow is made with Color project 4 elements. (11 days ago)

The process used was mainly cutting out parts of sources, adjusting sizes and colors and warping some parts into shape using puppet warp.
Masks, layer effects, glow, subtle drop shadows on some snowflakes, emboss, and various blending modes were used on different layers.
Some parts are painted using the source brushes and others are painted using the brushes which come already installed with photoshop.
The background is just a gradient layer fill with an overlay of a "render clouds" layer.
