I got a little inspired after watching Queen"s Gambit. Not only to return to play chess but also create a chess-involved project in blender . I took inspiration from one of the tournament scene in the series and made this scene around that.
Modeled in blender 2.83. Rendered in cycles on 600 samples with 3840 x 2160 resolution (took around 7hrs for single image). Colour balance and messing with passes in Gimp.
