This seriously one of the greatest things I've ever seen, and an homage to one of the most beautiful animated films of all time. Greatly done, my friend. :)

Oh my goodness. The Snowman has always held a dear, dear place in my heart. Just about everyone in my family can sing the song, "Walking in the Air."

The detail and beauty of this picture is breathtaking and stunning. Just so soft and clear.

Thank you so much. Seeing this picture has made me very happy.

Tremendous piece of homage here Idiehl. Masterful technique with the characterisation of the snowman and boy, and the background waves, the waves are very accomplished and professional, with a magical twist like Josh Kirby but not quite.

I haven't watched the Snowman in such a long time! I think I'll have to add that to my list of things to do next Christmas.
This is a lovely piece of work that really does the animation justice.

The first time I saw this movie was in london, on a big screen. I loved it so much when I came home I looked for it. This is exellent work laura and I hope I will get to that standard of digital
painting. (I haven't draw for 4 years so I have to work hard again to get to my standard level again) and Happy 2009!!!!
