Some people might be sick of seeing chess sets here, sorry for that. But this one I made is not the usual Staunton style pieces, so maybe there is some interest here.
This set is actually a replica of a set I own, which I purchased during a trip to Spain. I always thought that it would make a cool blender project to recreate this.
EDIT: I did a second render of this with some improvements, including removing the DoF. The old image is below.
I used blender to model and yafaray to render.
P.S. I also posted this on the yafray forums, my apologies if you already saw this.
