the member bennyK did a really nice chess piece render, you should see what he did (just do a search for chess and bennyk and gect, if i remeber right she told him a lot of useful stuff)
if i remember right again his chess pieces looked kind of like glass (cant remeber if they were or not)
otherwise that's an interesting start
that's a "Ch" pronounced as a "K"
Computer skills I should have:
Maya, XSI, Photoshop, AfterEffects, Motion, Illustrator, Flash, Swift3D
