For this ongoing series of digital illustrations titled “UNKNOWN × UNKNOWN,” designer Zhang Chenxi imagines an alien world crawling with gloopy, squishy, anemone-like creatures that share hybrid characteristics of plants and animals. Chenxi starts each piece as a concept sketch on paper and then models it in Cinema 4D before rendering in Octane. If you want to see more, he shares new works every few days on Instagram.
