glass chess background

this was my attempt at a photo realisticish chess background. it was also a chance to take a stab at compositing nodes. the frosted glass however used no nodes and im proud of how it came out. i might post an update with noded frosted glass.


Great job!
I’ve got to make one of those some day, everybodys doing it!

Slap some blurred background image on it… it adds a lot.

ya just get an hdri or something…the blue is screwing up the image

hdri…thts like when you have a bunch of different exposures right? what kind of hdri should i use? any ideas anyone?

its kind of dark…but cool

tht dark was intentional i thought it matched the blue and clear better then if it was bright
