I love that there's a tutorial on ice to begin with! It's such a complex object to reflect in visual art, whether it be traditional or digital, and to have some guidance in the process of trying to complete such a feat is amazing.

I like how there's emphasis on BOTH highlights and shadows, as many people have a tendency to forget about the shadows when working with objects where the light catches our eye more than anything else.

I also like the gradient technique. It gives an extra depth in perspective, which encourages the artist to practice with perspective as well.

In the lineart section, I like how the artist is encouraged to "make interesting compositions with forms and lines". It forces the artist to think for themselves, which is something that not a lot of tutorials do these days, so I'm happy to see this.

My one critique for this work would be that it could use a bit more explaining. Rather than just say where the light source is, don't make too many details, etc. etc., give a tutorial on HOW ice captures light and HOW the shadows are formed within something that is supposedly translucent.

However, on the flip side, this could be considered an advanced tutorial, where we can assume that the artist viewing this tutorial already has background knowledge on intermediate level art techniques.

All in all, well done!
