Daily Deviation

Given 2010-03-13
One look at this illustration by ~bentolman was enough to make me exclaim, with nary a thought, "whoa". For an even more overwhelming viewing experience - although this sounds impossible at the moment - the artist welcomes the use of the Download button to the left. True magic is at work when an art piece possesses the ability to hold the viewer's attention for more than 10 seconds... what are your favourite elements in Rhinoceros?

This is really a masterpiece. I got chills when I saw how the animals transform to sea creatures and then single cell organisms as you progress down the body. You have a true gift! :heart:
