Volumetric Curl Noise Tutorial

In this tutorial, I'll show you how to create a head filled with curly strands, as seen in some similar tutorials for Houdini.

It requires stringing some interesting techniques together and a little patience, but the final result is totally worth it! :)

All the resources used in the tutorial are free and available in the video's description on YouTube. In 45 minutes I take you through the entire creation of the image below, but of course this is just a starting point for you to push things further.

Have fun!



  1. I always learn cool tricks from these videos, but this time I'm extra excited to see you're using JettG_G's implementation of my thin film interference shader :)
