Lovely work ! You mentioned "When lighting the scene, I used Light Functions to create the illusion of light passing through clouds, thus lighting the environment unevenly" do you think you could show what is the setup to get such a precise result ?(meaning highlight the area you want?)

Amazing art. I'm curious how the rocks manage to be such a natural part of the terrain! It really looks like they have been there for ages.

Over the last couple of years, he’s been working on his personal projects, which involve a great deal of procedural 3d assets with Houdini.

He works extensively with motion design. It involves a lot of high-quality animations and high-poly models, which deform and change shape. He has a real talent for building top notch procedural elements. What’s especially cool about Nielse’s works is that they show a lot of organic elements. He works on that border between digital and real worlds.

Be sure to check out some of his works below.

The greatest thing is that none of Nielse’s knowledge is secret. He eagerly shares his ideas and techniques with the world. Apart of doing little interview with 80.lv, he also recorded a tutorial on building the amazing BLACK PYRITE stone. It’s an amazing look into the technical possibilities of Houdini.
