Hi everyone! It's been cold in some places lately. I was looking at the snowy landscapes in TV and wanted to do a snowman or something... but where I'm from, even it was very cold, we hadn't snow at all. So I said... ok! Let's do it in Blender! And here is the 2 parts tutorial about how to create the scene.
It'll cover modeling techniques, rendering in Cycles, using particles to simulate the falling snow, and compositing. I hope you like it!
Part 1: Model a snowman and all its props in Blender. Also, we'll use lots of modeling tricks and displacement to achieve the "snowy" look.
Part 2: Covering the scenery, the snow particles, lighting, rendering in Cycles and Final compositing!
