This is the latest render I’ve been working on. No real goal, just adding more as I go on. I call it “Impasse”.

Criticism, please. :slight_smile:

I like the concept. It’s a bit too dim, though.

How are you going to play chess on a board that small?

Maybe you could improve some of the materials because they all look a bit too smooth. And the lighting is a bit boring, so I would advise you to google ‘lighting techniques’ or ‘3 point lighting setup’. DOF is good though.
