Procedural radial wave pattern

Hello everyone!

I have created this pattern as a vector in illustrator to drive the bump map of a material I’m working on.

I would like to try and recreate it using the node editor and I’ve tried to follow a couple of tutorials but can’t seem to get it right. I’ve managed to create the radial pattern with straight lines, but can’t get them to bend in this wavy way. I also need it to be slightly blurred so the bump isn’t super harsh but more a smooth transition from high to low. Any help would be greatly appreciated!


That was fun. It animates nicely.

Wow! That was exactly what I was trying to achieve! And thank you so much for the extremely clear node tree, amazingly well done!

Cheers mate!
