Hello, everyone. This is my first post on the forums, and I’m excited to reveal my first composition using Blender! After modeling for about a day and setting up a scene, I finally have something to showcase. These are high-quality images, so I’m sorry about their sizes and the load times that they might create!
This is my very first model made in Blender:
Obviously, it’s rather crude and basic, but I’m proud of it. If you can’t tell, it’s a chess pawn, inspired by GreyBeard’s excellent subdivision video tutorial.
After some refinement, I turned it into this:
I really, really liked this gold effect I achieved, I think it makes the pawn look heavy and important.
After taking a break for some inspiration, I came back to Blender and set up a scene. I hope you like it, here it is:
Remember, that was my first scene, first day of using Blender, so please tell me truthfully what you think of it, I’ll gladly accept critique. I do, however, see how the pawns look uneven, like the gold one is higher, but they are aligned perfectly in the scene, it may just be how the reflective materials of different weights are pulling them apart as an optical illusion. Also, even thought the red light is strong, I like the ominous effect it gives to the scene.
Also, if you’re familiar with chess, then you’ll probably understand the title.
Thanks in advance, I’m looking forward to making more models and scenes with Blender!
