I'm not sure if this even counts, but I decided to just model my favorite piece instead of a full chess set. After watching tangled & brave recently, I really wanted to model a horse. Also not sure if it's allowed, but I drew up a concept last night after seeing the challenge, and used it to help modeling today.

Garner has my favorite entry so far, such a cool design!

After looking at the relatively simple wireframe now, I'm wondering how I spent the full 2 hours on it, but I was going full speed ahead the whole time. Then I spent a while figuring out how the simple v-ray fur works and messing around in photoshop. Either way, it was a fun challenge and I'm trying to work on things to make a portfolio, as working in finance is b-o-r-i-n-g.

sarN, that is awsome, probably the best knight I have ever seen its really well executed and very clean modelling. you should consider the rest of the Tangled chess set? and maybe make it as a personal project.

in terms of my entry... hands up... not my design found it on google )

Thanks guys, glad you like it! It was definitely fun to model. I should have put the text on the clay render though, as the vray hair was just for the beauty shot since it took me a while to figure out. Garner, not sure if I have the dedication to attempt to model all of the tangled characters (this wasn't supposed to be an exact copy of Maximus or anything) but I do like the idea of making a whole slew of fleshed out characters for chess pieces as a portfolio piece! And hey, even though it's not your design it's still well modeled!

Wicked challenge, everyone!

After searching through various chess pieces on Google, I found a DIY guide for making pieces out of nuts and bolts, and decided to give it a shot in 3d. I liked the idea of a couple of bored maintenance workers cobbling together a set out of the bits and pieces they had lying around. The repeated shapes across each piece made it a bit easier on me, in the end. The milk crate base was a spur-of-the-moment decision: I wanted to see if I could whip one up inside the 25 minutes I had left. Turns out it wasn't that crazy, after all!

Don't have a lot of time at the moment to beautify it, but hopefully I'll be able to update it when I do. I'd like to expand it into a nicer portfolio piece at some point:

EDIT: I just bought the new version of Marmoset Toolbag, and have been itching to try it out on a scene. Decided to spend some time jazzing this one up for the portfolio. I'm not quite finished with it yet, but I felt it was nice enough at this stage to include as the SMC beauty render:

Really nice entry Marcobar but you must specify the software you used to model the entry in to be qualified to enter the contest.

It will be really fun to see the results when this competition is over. I bet the judges will have a hard time deciding on this
