Abrasha concept project

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hey guys! I used to be an FX artist with Houdini but made the transition to concept art, however I still have a love for a procedural workflow and am constantly looking for ways to implement Houdini into my art. I won't talk about scattering the snow because I am sure everyone knows how simple and awesome Houdini is for a thing like that! I will just say I createde CSV files for Octane to read in and render and the control is awesome. So I will just briefly talk about the cloth. For this project I wanted to create a MarvelousDesigner in H type of thing, and I have to say Houdini for clothing is amazing. The system that I built means it will auto stitch itself as long as I draw the curves in the same order which is very easy, and the biggest takeaway is that I don't have to struggle to get what I want at all - I can just grab a few points and say these are going to stick here and thats it. In testing this workflow I created clothing for a couple different characters in a matter of minutes. I'm really interested in using Houdini like this for my concepts, which need to be very quick... I think there is a lot of potential in a procedural workflow like this where you don't tweak it to make it perfect, you hack it to just make it good enough to paint over. I am just scratching the surface but clothing is one thing I'll definitely be doing in Houdini from now on. I'm also using VR a lot and have some interesting tests with creating geometry in houdini out of the curves from gravity sketch, but thats for another time if people are interested :)
