Slice of Paradise by steohawk
A penguin sits on an iceberg in the arctic ocean, watching a tropical island float in air. This scene presented several challenges. I wanted the atmosphere to have the feeling of a calm morning over a cold ocean. I had to do a lot of tweaking to make sure it wasn't too bright, dark, warm, windy, etc. The second challenge was the material for the icebergs. I started with the basic snow material that comes with Vue. The color was plain white, so I mixed in some light blue. I added a variable highlight function using Dots. I made the highlights really bright so that the ice would glisten.
