ApoChess by Valdemaras ApoChess by Valdemaras
2009-01-07 ---------------------------------------------------------------

A simple and bit ghostly looking chess board made with Apo 2.08 3D hack, photoshop used only for signature :D

2009-01-09 edit ---------------------------------------------------------

My friend :iconsvajokle: suggested to do something about the pore perspective of the chess board so i added some changes and to the board, and chess pieces as well :D

This is one flame, single render and photoshop was used only for the little signature, do you see it :D

Scientists have invented a material that looks like that - undefined form, cool glowy-mist-stuff. If you run into one of those scientists, tell them I want a chessboard with pieces made out of that. This is so awesome.

And I found the signature, after a minute of squint-searching. :P

Now that's what I call a clever piece of fractal art.

Nice work, especially with getting the different colors for the various pieces, and coming up with an awesome theme for the chess pieces themselves, since you had to make fractals.

I'd love to see this in several different styles and color themes. :D

PS. Talk about showing mastery of the Apo 3D hack program. I have had my ups and downs with it myself, and about the only good ones I made, I use bubble/pre-blur for starting transforms so the shapes make sense to me. :thumbsup:

another of mine chess like fractal with totally different looks would be [link] :D i always like to experiment with all kind of varitions on the transforms because you never know what shapes youll produce ;) lets also not forget the position of the shape :)

Oh that other one's pretty cool-looking. In the middle of a game and all. :)

Very nice work. Being a fractalist myself, I totally get what you mean about experimenting with transforms. Some of my best work was spawned from nothing but experiments.

Absolutely beautiful!

Unfortunately, the board is set up incorrectly - the white square goes on the player's right.

This may not be the first note on this, but...

CHESS CRITIQUE:

When setting up pieces, the proper way is to have a light square in the lower right-hand corner of each side. You have the board set up sideways. Sorry to be such a chess jackass.

Valdemaras Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
No problem :D all critique is welcome ;) the bigest chalenge was to make the chessboard and the chess pieces with a program in which this kind of work is very tricky :D
