Warning.....Never sunbake on a road in winter. It is not a good place to sunbake. Wrong season for it too. If you do feel compelled to do such a thing, make sure you look out for stray trains which should not be on the snow covered road. (2 years and 189 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.

**MADE FROM SOURCE ONLY**.
Background was round brushes with some of the built in "Splatter" brushes in PS. Mountains are again round brushes that were blurred. Sky is also brushed. Snow made from several layers of white brushed circles. Some have Gaussian Blur. Some have Motion Blur. Some have both. Rudolf was made using the stuffed animal from the source. Rudolf\'s socks were made from his scarf as well as that "frilly" stuff on the blanket. The saddle/harness was made using the brown chair back on the left side. The built in "Hair" (or grass) brush was used for masking as well as some of the Splatter Brushes for the feet. Hope you like it. (3 years and 65 days ago)
