Wow that's a nice one, I like how the text is sorta covered. I think I would make the logo a bit more of an icy look and not just like a distorted effect. Do you use Photoshop? I can show you what I mean through TeamViewer if you feel comfortable.

EDIT: Like in this one. I actually did an ice texture, a frost texture (around the snow), and the snow - over the OCN logo. I can actually give you a layered tif of that if you want.

That would be cool, I just downloaded TeamViewer. How do you connect to me?

Ok, revised and did a little bit of what you taught me. Modified the look a little, and then blended it all together.

Not sure if I am happy or not with the outcome. What do you guys think?

Hmm, maybe try sharpening the snow and making the frost behind the logo darker? Not sure really.

This one I like quite a bit better. I didn't do anything to the logo itself, only the ice behind it. I am also uploading the photoshop file if you would like to mess around with it.



PS. I will put the link of the photoshop file here when it's done uploading.

No the problem is the muddiness at the bottom of the logo. True ice forming always has a defining contrast to it. The outside needs to have some more shadowing because ice will always have a definition to it based from the light. This can also be clarified by the clarity of ice. Try adding some shadows and lighting at the bottom. True ice formation usually has the greatest effect at the top and works it's way down. By the way you have setup the ice formation it would work it's way from the outside in. So more on the outside and clearer design on the inside. This is why the middle where it has the best blue clarity looks better and the bottom doesn't.

Shadows and lighting? How so, and what from?

See how the medium blue in this ice designing is defining the depth of the ice. That's what you need
