Just to clarify, I did start using Houdini about a year and a half ago, but I have had much time away from it. As of now I am full steam ahead in learning the concepts that make procedural art and tools possible. I have never really programmed before minus following a few tutorials and copying the techniques therein...so this journey really starts with learning a bit of code. I mean I am all the way at the beginning of learning code. I have been mystified/frightened by code/scripting for years, which almost seems shameful for a professional 3D artist. No More!!! I will cross this bridge, I will climb the mountain, and then I will handglide off the side, and hope that Billy Goat I see coming closer is a flying Billy Goat!
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
