Slushy snow

After recent heavy snowfall in Ireland (the worst we've seen in 40 years!) I tried to capture the look of slowly melting snow as it turns to icy slush. Photogrammetry in Reality Capture, photos shot on my phone. Textures baked in 3DSMax and Knald. I reused the albedo over and over for emissive, sub surface scattering, roughness, fuzz and translucency maps, with slight tweaks. Rendered in Toolbag 3.
