zwischendrin has released SnowFlow v1.6. It is a 3D Studio Max plugin that creates realistic snow with ease! Apeerantly all you need to do is pick an object and SnowFlow does the snow for you! This come very close to the snow discussion at the GH Challenge Forum – might be a good solution for all those winter scenes in the works.

The smaller image... I thought it was a render :D
Maybe its because of the lighting, or that all the background elements are super sharp.

Why not remodel resulting mesh and add/sculpt even more definition :]

You might have a point there... but then you can do the snow and have fun with other things :-)

Ha Ha Ha ... Perhaps I really should change it back to the actual render example. It was kind of a challenge call...

Hah Pawel you are everywhere :D
I knew that Zbrush at work could be handy... You can use it to add footsteps with foot decals, animals steps etc...
