What looks like glass, is freezing cold and sank the Titanic? Ice!

If you are able to solve this riddle, congrats! You are as smart as a 4th grader.

No huge restriction, just depict ice. A material study, an ice monster or even a fine tumbler of whiskey on the rocks. It's up to you.

Canvas Size - Max. 350x350
Colors - Max. 32.
Transparency - Optional.
Animation - Optional.
