    not bad. i think there should be snow, or some ice around the letters on the ground.

    Thanks VT. I was going to add some snow in the foreground but went with slick black floor instead.
    I wanted a cool looking reflection in there. I should have added some puddles on the floor though.
    Maybe next time.
    I think you could make some pretty cool looking ice cubes this way too. :)

    Thanks VT. :) First thing to do would be erase the icicles on the bottom of the text, second fix the reflection, and third would be giving the floor a reflective surface.

    The icicles on the reflection face the wrong direction. They should go up instead because it's mirrored on the floor.

    LOL i believe i forgot to flip the font.That is funny.
    Mostly the tutorial was directed towards using the plasma filter for the inside part of the ice.

    you should make a tutorial on how to chnage the Index of refraction like one would do in 3D programs. So that you can outline a square and then it would be a lil distorted and glass like looking. :)
