Ekaterina Surikova has shared with the CGI community an amazing generator that she developed by herself to create the well-known Christmas Wreath.
As She said: << The idea for this HDA came to me over two years ago when I was just starting to study Houdini. Then I did not have enough skills to implement it, and only this year did I finally decide to get closure. >>
She also mentioned: << Although the generated models are not suitable for games, due to the high poly count, I am quite happy with this generator. The generated wreaths are nice and colorful, which is exactly what I needed for the Christmas season.>>
