I got so attached to this kid as I worked with him I decided to adopt him, thus his new name.

I did a lot of things, but the main ones included separating and enlarging head, distorting body with transform, diffuse, craquelure faded, KPT materialize, layer effects emboss, shading with burn tool. I put his own hat and scarf back on him, distorting them and adding stripes with the circular gradient on a new layer then distorting to fit. The tail of the scarf was made from a scarf piece rotated and fringe was made with the smudge tool set to comb brush.

He's a dirty snowboy since the ground is wet and he's been splashing in puddles, but snowboys will be snowboys and I love him anyway...my little Snowie.

Reminds me of the Pillsbury doughboy.

A very nice job creating this character and a good job with the shading as well.

I like him too...

I kept looking for a good snowman to morph him onto...looks like you did pretty well.

I like the fact that it really LOOKS like snow, dirty or otherwise!

Stewart looks _great_ wonderful job Snow men are always dirty because there is _never_ enough snow to finish one.
~sigh~ it's all snowy outside but I can't build a snowman because it's not good packing snow. ~scowl~ I guess I'll have to do with a computer snowman....
On the plus side I get out of school

Love, hugs, and cute little puppy dogs for all!!

WOW! Excellent job turning the boy into a snowman. The final image looks like it was taken that way. Very realistic! The eyes are a bit on the mean side. Kind of looks like he might be a snow bully.

Nice touch making the snowman a bit dirty as boys will be boys and snow always ends up dirty.

It truly is amazing what you can achieve with filters Phyllis. Great work as always!

very well done! It even looks like that wet, almost crystalized snow that I remember from my youth. Good packing snow, that.

great job!
