I find it very interesting that the name for a bishop in most languages seems to derive from runner or be a fast - attacking piece

well actually, I find it more interesting that we chose to name the runner piece "bishop" in english .

weird.

Indeed, in spanish the bishop is called "Alfil" which comes from the persian name for the piece "Al-fil" which means "the elephant"....go figure

@Big-Toe. Do we have to use all the maps you mentioned? I am still rather inexperienced and I don't know how to use them all. If anyone has some tutorials, I would gladly try them out.

you don't have to use all the maps listed, they are just examples of maps you can use.

Is it okay to include a vehicle as part of the character? Say if part of the design is for him to be riding in a chariot or a tank or something? (As long as all fit within poly limits of course)

Should imagine so, as long as the base is chess piece suitable? There are a couple of entries which aren't bipeds atm.

What are the restrictions on number of entries per person?

Also, are there any restrictions on having 2 forum profiles, and using them both concurrently?

I say this because I've noticed 2 suspiciously named members...

I wouldn't see a problem with a mount as long as it all fits on the same texture sheet. considering the Knight piece would most likely be a mounted piece.

@Big Toe-3DT In regards to the "base", Can you elaborate here about this as im guessing most people are confused to the term in the brief.

When I first read "Only real restriction, your piece needs to have a “chess like” base." I assumed by base you ment an identifiable chess like concept.

SnappedStrings: yes thats fine.

The Prime: One entry per person. If they try to enter under different names, I'll know, or at least I'll find out.

Kaiune3D: when I wrote chess like base, what I was refering to was the bottom of the model, the part that rests on the chess board. I'll post up a few examples in a bit.

i know i've not been involved here.. but just saw the post...

prime asked about entries and multiple entries....i mean...

i dont wanna step on the bigtoe here.. but couldnt you create multiple entries.. and at the end pick the one that you want to put in as your final... so technically you only enter one... but you arent just limited to one design.. as i'm sure the reason prime is asking.. is because he has a couple of ideas he wants to explore...

so me.. id say.. do them.. and at the end.. pick the one that you think is your better entry and go with that...

but then.. i'm not a judge.. or mod.. so you'd have to ask someone else if thats cool..

it's true, you can make as many models(entries) as you want, but you can only enter one for the judging.

So the model needs a base, as in something it stands on, and CAN have a pedastal, as in something it stands on. Am I correct?

here are a few examples, the last one has a "person" and they are on top of a base.




the base and the pedestal are two different things.
