Introduction

The idea for this project was born while watching the movie The Golden Compass, which has scenes on ice and snow that are really fantastic. I added to that the fact that I like old airplanes and then started to develop the idea.

For a long time I've wanted to make a scene that involved ice and snow, but my greatest difficulty with this is the fact that I have never seen snow. After watching the movie I began to sketch a scene, and with the sketches defined, I made a simple model to use as a guide for the work (Fig.01).

Following that I began to work on the creation and composition of materials to be used in the scene. Even though this is a stage that is performed further into the process, I decided to bring this to the beginning of the process, because the main focus of this work was actually the materials (Fig.02).

The snow material can be seen in Fig.03.

Awesome materials and tutorial, really love them! However I can't see what it says in fig.4 at all :S. Moreover (in fig.4), how is the functions in the pink box (top right) connected? Would be wonderful if you could clarify seeing it such nice work!
