Check Out This Dynamic Hair Braid Simulation Made With Houdini

Artem Erikenov continues to experiment with digital hairstyles.

Artem Erikenov, a talented Grooming Artist who specializes in creating photorealistic 3D hair and fur, continues his series of experiments with digital hairstyles, delighting hundreds with his impressive results.

In his latest demo, the creator showcased a work-in-progress version of a dynamic braid simulation that closely resembles real-life braids in both appearance and movement. According to the author, the braid was set up in Houdini, a procedural 3D software developed by SideFX, and is only the "first iteration" of the project, hinting that we'll see even more awesome showcases further down the line.

Recently, Artem also wowed us with a lifelike 3D white cat model, groomed in Houdini and rendered with Chaos' V-Ray in Maya: 

If you would like to learn more about the artist's grooming pipeline, we highly recommend checking out our recent interview with Artem, where he spoke about the creation of a medium-length hairstyle for a woman using Houdini, compared Houdini and Ornatrix, and provided a detailed walkthrough of the grooming process.

We also highly encourage you to visit the creator's YouTube channel, filled to the brim with insightful timelapse videos and breakdowns that will help you learn more about character grooming.
