Ice, Snow, Frost

"What killed the dinosaurs? The ice age!" Ok, maybe not, but we’ll use any excuse to say a comically bad Mr. Freeze pun from Batman & Robin. Cold comes in several forms, including ice, snow, and frost. From the weather, to weaponry, to enemy forces, making a frigid looking effect will surely require some references. This week our team has pulled together some cool resources to inspire your next chilling effect!
