Shading a Jellyfish inside Houdini

Hi everyone

 

     I'm doing a personal project for improve my skills w/ Houdini, in this project I'm creating a Jellyfish, I already animated and modeled inside Houdini, but I'm having some problems with shading, I wanna create a shade like this one: https://www.behance.net/gallery/24460837/Jellyfish-Rise-3D-CGI, I don't know how I can do that, and for where I can start. Do you have some suggestion?? Thank you.

Use the Principled Shader. It is a lot easier to dial in effects. Pink transparent material with reflection and sheen.

i don't think principled shader does transparency, but it should do refraction which is probably a better option here anyways.

How I can set this transparency?? I did not find this in the principled shader. 

im on the same quest,  i will make a try, something like fresnel layer with some low glossy refractions

Hi Guys, Incredible and challenging pictures at the beginning of this post!!!

i did one animated fantasy jellyfish while learning houdini.

you can see here:

I am a little bit off topic because I id everything in Houdini except shading lighting wich was in Maya using 3deLight wich i am more familiar with...

cheers
