I got inspired by an early presentation video for The Cycle that is produced here in Berlin. I saw these rocks that look like they’ve been washed out or that had big parts blasted away. So I thought to myself: this is perfect for a quick study in Houdini’s procedural approach to modeling. Below you can see some of my early results.
Here are some roundtable renderings.
The shiny Houdini fragments are from the Apprentice version's watermarks on the textures.
