Tutorial 1: Make people look frozen
Tutorial 2: Ice Mask
Tutorial 3: Create a chilling photoshop manipulation

BWR: So the people can't have snow or ice on them before we chop them? Good contest idea. ( 1 year and 49 days ago )
still26: I am going crazy with this contest. Thanks a lot ( 1 year and 47 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. ( 1 year and 47 days ago )
still26: Does anyone out there have another link on how to do this, one that a technically challenged individual could understand? ( 1 year and 46 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. ( 1 year and 45 days ago )
still26: I will do that tomorrow, thank you Skyangel. ( 1 year and 45 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.
