The usual suspects


Being a noop in Blender, I’m constantly looking for shapes that challenges my blender skills. Currently I find most shapes either too easy or too hard to model. I finally found a challenge that seemed to fit: A set of chess pieces. I used my old chess game as ‘blueprint’ for my new model (I took this lousy photo):

After I finished the modeling I was quite pleased with the result. But a rendered image of chess is totally boring, so I looked for something more fun. Inspired by the superb movie, The Usual Suspects, I decided to model the movie poster with chess pieces instead. And here is how it turned out:
