lets just start with the critics. Maybe the pawn is a bit to small compared to the rest. If i could make this i made the pawn a half higher, to about that black line on the rook under the white V. But that is my vision on it. overall its an super awesome set. I would like to see the other team. I get a realy good feeling about how high the structures are. Also, the king is a bit not shielded enough i thing compared to the others, its quitte thin for a king. Awesome thing u made there i really like that style. i wish i could draw something like that
I love this, merely because of the level of detail and art. Honestly, the amount of detail you put into this from the soldier on the rook, to the little square on the queen. I love the shading, and everything, it is absolutely wonderful. I also like how the pawn provides a bit of comic amusement with it's eyes. The colors used are also very evocative of a futuristic playing board/slash warfare, providing a realistic view that still hints at the future. The clever use of painting symbols is very smart, and clearly indentifies each piece, even if you couldn't see it by the shape. The only thing I'm mildly displeased with is you don't have the full set up, and the king doesn't seem as ornamental as the queen. I believe the King, because it is the more valuable piece on the board, should be more ornate, sort of like a ceremonial weapon, because you rarely use the king unless you have to. Otherwise, bravo, and well done!
I'm really Impressed with this!!! I don't like The futurist style, but Boy, you make me today respect and love this style of art!!! You make me feel the need to play one game from Command & Conquer, but with this "Urban Assault Robotic Fauna". The Mechanic logic, the gears, ammo and the solids converge "warlikely" [I Invented this term! ].
I can't object nothing to repare, because this is Your Art, Your Style and your passion embodied and converted in this incredible piece of Art. Don't stop working so hard, if you can create things like this!
I think I understand why the king was made to look bare. To those who have played chess when it comes to attack-power (limited vocabulary at night, don't judge) the kings lack of maneuverability is only second to that of a pawns. Basically the pieces have taken on the look of militarised weapons in what I feel to be a dystopian future or at least that is my perception. It stands to reason that during Mr--Jack's thought-process he embelished the pieces more than the others depending on the 'attack-power' of the pieces, hence the kings lack of armour.
I love this one the concept and design are very nice and think they all compliment each other with being different but still looking like they belong togeather. I would love to see a set done for the other side of them (there opponents)... PLEASE do one
In chess, all pieces are equal in terms of the death toll one can take per round- one piece moves in a round, only one other piece can die by it in a round. Imagining the horror of seeing the rook falling at the hands of a pawn: priceless. Awesome looking work, I love it
