Houdini experiments

This spring I decided to try out Houdini from SideFX Software.  I have know about it for over twenty years and it feels like I’ve tried every other 3D-software on the planet.

Well, better late than never. I have felt like a homeless person in the world since I lost faith  and discarded all those mainstream, marketing-driven apps. I have been getting by using ZBrush, Unreal Engine and an old version of Modo.

Now I have finally found a new home. I will post my uncensored progress here. Enjoy ;)




Haputale Photo Trip, Sri Lanka

Last week I visited Forest Farming pioneers Greenfield Bio Plantations outside Haputale, in the southern/central part of Sri Lanka. Sitting at an altitude of over 1500 m (5000 feet) above sea level, the self-sustaining forest farming estate was a beautiful experience across the dimemsions.


Around 6 am, looking out from near the top of the plantation.

The concept of forest farming goes far beyond organic, mimicking a natural forest with large and small trees, providing shade and welcoming birds, that in turn feed on insects and taking part in creating a strong natural eco-system.
