Cabin Du Penseur (Arnold & Renderman)

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.

The final Arnold Render. Comp was done in Nuke and Final Grade in Resolve.

The RenderMan version shows my first work in Houdini. Overall, it was a great experience. The technical issues I ran into were the result of being so green. Its here just to show the impact of feedback. Thanks, Keith!
