Using Houdini, I’ll show you how to create graphics with a generative but reasonably interesting approach. Through some examples, I would like to share interesting modeling using SOPs and its know-how.

・Introduction of algorithms that are not well known as generative art
・How to reduce the digitalness by interweaving a hand-drawn approach
・Create 2D graphics with 3DCG tools
・How to imitate a unique color scheme
