:nodevember: Nodevember 2021 is here! Check the prompts and share with #nodevember

Nodevember is a yearly event during the month of November, to encourage and promote procedural art.

It is a challenge, not a contest. No matter your field or skill level, any and all node-based/procedural creations are welcome! In fact, Nodevember is a fantastic opportunity to challenge yourself to learn new things and advance your procedural abilities.

In previous editions, there have been 30 prompts, one for each day of November, but this year will be a bit different! In the interest of lowering the barrier to entry and promoting a more casual and enjoyable experience, there will be only 15 prompts this year. Each prompt will run for two days, giving you more time to unleash your creativity, and above all, have fun!

You can find all the information you need to participate on nodevember.io, and any updates will be posted @NodevemberIO on Twitter and Instagram.

Participating on Blender Artists

To participate here on Blender Artists, create a new topic for each work and add the #nodevember tag to the topic as shown below. This will automatically add you to the official Nodevember gallery here, and I’ll do a roundup on BlenderNation with the best work each week.

Enjoy!

Can we please talk about just how strange th.e prompts for this year’s nodevember are? Because I can’t come up with any ideas for the first 6 prompts honestly.

I think the idea was to give people more freedom by having less descriptive prompts. ‘3 sided’ could just be a mainly triangular shape like a traffic sign or triangle. You’ll have a hard time coming up with a proper 3 dimensional object with just 3 sides :slight_smile:

Thank you @bartv for integrating the nodevember to the forum. Also having 15 prompt this year is great decision, much more motivating for me and I believe we’ll see even higher quality content.

I think they’re like for “warm-up”. It can be something as simple as a triangle plane or those triangles scattered across the scene to make another “meaningful” thing (Or just go full abstract that feels like 3 sided :upside_down_face:).
For example I’m planning to create stuff via geometry-nodes to learn it. And I know I’ll have hard time to create even those basic shapes :smiley:

100% the same for me :joy:

@bartv I agree it does give more freedom. Just that with freedom more work is required. Last year I don’t have to think too much about creativity for a prompt like cookie for example. I just focus on the technical side. I guess I’m just mentally lazy :sweat_smile:

You sir are a genius! :smiley: you just gave me an Idea. I’m going to attempt making a stylized terrain (a forest maybe) with geometry nodes where everything looks blocky 3 sided! then for the next, it will be a four-sided desert…then a 5 sided underwater scene… and so on. :smiley:
