Sierra strikes a pose

Finally rendered a pose with houdini. The pose is generated by a rig in messiah and exported via MDD files to houdini. Body and face rig were based off of tutorials by Joe Cosman. I can't say enough good things about these tutorials - if you're going to do rigging/animation in Messiah, then go out and buy his Rigging 1&2 and Animation 1&2 tutorials.
