Once upon a time, in the good old days (hehe), I used to play a game called Battle Chess, where each piece would do something funny if they took out an opposing piece.. which made me want to replicate this, not as a game (at least not right now), but rather as an animation of sorts, to add to my showreel.
The first piece is (almost) done, it's the knight ("horse" in my native language)... C&C welcome. All the pieces are supposed to be 100% marble, so even though some have weapons, armor etc it all has to look like stone.
(image.. I hope)
currently working on the bishop.. not being a native English speaker, I'm not 100% sure about the names of each piece, so could anyone tell me if these are the right names:
Pawn (each have 8 of these)
Rook (the "tower")
so, as I said C&C regarding the knight welcome!
