Thanks for the chance to take part in another of your challenge months SideFX, probably enjoyed this one even more than HOULY. Definitely glad to have gotten the chance to take part in the two, and glad to have finished both on time!

This was super challenging and really got me to try things I was uncomfortable with. I had a lot of fun and lost a lot of sleep. There was a lot of inspiring work that people were putting out this month and I'm happy to see such a growing Houdini user community. See ya next time!

Here is a link to a playlist of all my entries as well:

Congrats to everyone, to the winners, other ironhearts, everyone who just tried for a little! It was so much fun. I had my constraints set, aside from the daily prompts, made my life a bit more harder - it had to involve Absinthe Gummy Rabbits, it is a joke from a show I am currently working on. And also it had to have an original soundtrack, the four bar loop, I wrote that day. A lot of insane electronic music ideas, working after hours, instead of real work sometimes, looking with envy other entries and learning tons of new stuff. Discovering Houdini was so important part of my artistic growth, so kudos to Sidefx team for such an amazing engineering, imagination, dedication and inspiration. Also kudos to all the artists out there, scientists and generally creatives who are pushing the boundaries of the computer graphics and human imagination.

Big effort, since I didn't have as much experience, in case of many tools was using them the absolute first time. Some prompts were very tricky and had to go creative at tackling them (especially on my lazy days).

But hey, I'm fairly happy with the stuff I ultimately came up with and looking back on the stuff I've beeen seeing from others posting, gotta say now these entries feel rather more encouraging to beef up on this amazing toolset that Houdini is (rather than discouraging, as many entries were just simply so good : )

Rendered with Renderman.. oh wait, do I have to say this here as well?

Stoked to have been a part of this one!

Was a nice ride and cool to use different tools which are not usually in my dailiy toolkit but sometimes hard to find the strength and motivation after a long work day.
But it was a nice experience getting something out everyday and not iterating to long on the same things (eventho a lot of my entries could need some more iterations).

Thanks for the fun activity. And kudo to all participants and winners.

Well done everyone; phenomenal work!

I had a great time taking on this challenge. It was worthwhile to learn so many new strategies in Houdini, amidst balancing this with work and classes. Many thanks to the SideFX team for the opportunity and I look forward to continuing on my journey through Houdini.

In addition to the contact sheet, here's a link showcasing all of my entries for the challenge: Mardini 2021 Showcase [vimeo.com]

Oh my god we did it!!! I can't believe I made it all the way through. Congratulations everyone who participated and a massive THANK YOU to SideFX for organizing this. I've never been more creative during my 15+ years of VFX. Also never been this tired to be honest

Battery low, signing out...

Cheers,
Kristof
