I took the first half of 2019 to try and immerse myself in Houdini.
This case study is my first project.
It started as a renderman challenge (https://renderman.pixar.com/answers/spaces/41/index.html).
Following some amazing feedback from friends, in particular Keith Beltrimini (https://www.artstation.com/keithbeltramini), I ended up switching to Arnold after the challenge for further study.
