Christmas arrival - Blender Guru competition

Hey everyone!
This is an image I’m creating for the blenderguru’s christmas competition and its almost ready. I might change a few things, add some fir trees, perhaps turn down the world lighting just a bit and try to create some volumetric fog around the horizon. :slight_smile:

The base render is done in Cycles. Specular pass, snowflakes and glow effects are rendered in BI.
Any comments and ideas to improve are welcomed!
PS. I haven’t come up with a good name for the picture yet, so its still in the “todo list”

here’s the current render:

Looks pretty good. I like all the snow effects and the lantern lighting.

The fellows head does kind of creep me out though… no ears, eyes, hair/beard, etc. :smiley:

It’s an amazing concept, I like the colors, the footprints look a little big though, nice image though!
