This one is for all you picture puzzle maniacs, who just like I like to stare into image and nitpick every detail that can tell you a little story told on the canvas :] There is aground ten (not gonna tell you exactly how many) storytelling elements in this picture, some of them are obvious, some of them are not, and some of them you can see only in closeups. So if you wanna mess around a bit, find and connect all those pieces together into a short story that this picture is showing. Just post them as a comments - I promise I'm gonna read trough all of them and best of them will be featured in my journal one week form now.
So lets the mini tiny contest begin :D

As for picture itself It was made for ImagineFX magazine workshop section. Featured in upcoming issue 27, that should be on the market around January 12 so if you can get it - get it :] Workshop is very extensive, showing my workflow and how I do the things I do, all with 30+ screenshot from production and few useful tips :] Hope you gonna like it

Image was done by hand in Photoshop, few references used but nothing significant. And I know that reflection in icicle is not realistic, but I did it on purpose to point something out - yes it is a clue :D

Crits and comments always welcome and remember about mini tiny story contest :D

Some closeups can be found here: [link]
