    Hi Blurymind,
    Great concept, and that snowman does remind me of Clavin & Hobbes

    I feel that if you try different blending modes for the grey-shade layer it might help. Since you've already shaded the grey, the light information is already there and any color that you put on top ends up 'darkening' the overall feel of the image. I picked this up from the comic book inking, and translated it to coloring BW images. If what you really want is to shade the surfaces with a natural feel you might want to colorize the grey image so that the surfaces have light & dark variations of hues and not the grey additives. This would help brighten & 'saturate' the image.
    Also I find the lack of blues (conventionally associated with the snow) a little uncomfortable, but the mood of the image is spot on.
    Hope this helps,
    The more hair I lose, the more head I get.

    Great picture anyway, but indeed some light blue touch might give a feel more ... winterish ? (sorry for bad english )
