Obligatory Chessboard

It was inevitable.



 Eventually, after playing around with Blender, I was bound to create a chess set. So I did this one. It's a copy of one by a Bauhaus designer; it has a manifesto attached about doing away with anachronistic kings, queens, bishops and knights. I kind of like it, but I noticed when I rendered the black pieces that it looked a little like playing with Borg ships.

And there's something about this piece that seems cold. Maybe if I print out the pieces on a 3D printer and fill them with LEDs...
