"After a long time without personal projects, I've created this Nordic Base, started during my live streams on my YouTube channel. I spent two weeks on this project using Houdini, Maya, Clarisse, and comp and matte painting in Nuke. I hope you like it!"
The concept of this project and all elements were created by Urko Galdona. Procedural modeling was done in Houdini for the quartz and castle, and terrain geo created with Houdini heightfields tools. Field textures & grass from Quixel megascan. Fog and clouds volumetric layers also made using Houdini.

"We were asked to create some sort of simulation for this project. I chose to create an advertisement for SpaceX's upcoming interplanetary travel. I created the environment in Cinema4D and all simulations in Houdini."
"This project was created to learn the grooming tools in Houdini. I am responsible for all aspects of the project but more emphasis on the grooming part of the project. No external plugins were used in making this. Everything was made with Houdini's in-built grooming tools."
