Nodevember 2021 is coming

Nodevember 2021 is coming

Nodevember is a yearly event during the 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.

You can discover the prompt just below. Can’t wait to see what you will create with Agama materials!

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!

How to participate

  • Create awesome procedural stuff inspired by the prompt each day.
  • Post your result, along with a screenshot of your nodes, on social media.
  • Tag your post with #nodevember and #nodevember2021 so that everyone can see it.
  • Also, make sure to tag your post with the relevant hashtags of the software you used. For Agama materials it is #agamamaterials

The exact limit of what is procedural depends on your field and skill level, so we encourage you to define your own constraints and goals at the beginning of the month.

These are our suggested constraints for popular fields:


  • No image textures.
  • No nodes that load external data.
  • For an extra challenge, use only procedural lighting (no HDRIs).


  • No manual sculpting/modelling.
  • Basic primitives only.
  • No nodes that load external data.

Music/sound synthesis:

  • No samples or recordings.
  • No nodes that load external data.
  • Basic oscillators only (no wavetables).

But in the end, it's up to you to set your own personal challenge, and decide how far you want to push yourself.

And above all, have fun!
