INFO

Michael Pryor is a multi-faceted designer and Rhino + Grasshopper, expert. He is currently working as a computational designer at Nike NXT and he is the CDO of DesignMorphine.

His remarkable and beautiful work can be easily spotted and recognized all over the internet.

THE TASK

The complex and unconventional geometries that Mike creates, have inspired us to create a challenge where artists are required to picture a Belly of the beast scenario. Over the past few years, many artists working in the field of ArchViz have made the transition into concept art, environment art, game assets creation, and matte painting. We at the D2 felt that a challenge like this could help you experimenting and push your skills to a place of further self-development.
