(I actually took some pictures of frost on my window yesterday! XD) How I would do it... I would probably just take white and draw spiky lines in the face (on an own layer) and then use the sharpen tool - 'cause ice is very very frosty-sharp. I would probably do like blood veins in the skin, just white and add a lot of spikes to it. Like trees! o3o I watched the frost on my window and they looked like corals and leaves. So I would probably do something like that : ) I hope something of what I just wrote make any sense .__. I can draw a picture of it tomorrow, if you want to wait that long? I can record it and upload on youtube. Hows that? : )
If it's just the white... check your "brush-stats" in the top of your window and look if it's on "brighter color" or something like that. If so, just switch it to normal and everything should be ok : )
Woah yeah thats loads of views Grats though ;D I use a much simpler technique for ice and crystals and such, draw some random blob that looks sharpish in white, add tons upon tons of light and SHAZAM thats me. Glowy gets me everywhere. Except rocks, rocks dont glow and i hate them i can't draw them and argh *kills self* why did i have to draw rocks!
