You've been a lot to ask for beginner friendly tutorials about Houdini... I figured it's October, let's make pumpkins !
So in this "Pumpkin Hell" tutorial I am finally taking the time to talk more in detail about procedural modeling .. I usually try to explain my thoughts process as much as I can, but going slower and deeper this time so hopefully should help if you are still fairly new with Houdini procedural.
But don't get desperate if you can't totally grasp everything yet... there's a reason it's called "pumpkin hell" . A lot of information in one hour and I still picked a pretty challenging topic for beginner... So let me know if you have any questions I'll try to answer.

In the next video we'll explore Solaris in houdini 18.5 to lookdev and create a stylized render for our pumpkin.
Hope this help !
