Chess

After following up few tutorials, I thought it will be a good practice to do something entirely by myself, instead of just learning from tutorials.

Therefore, today I tried to create a simple Chess pieces.

The image above is the source image which I used to help create my chess pieces.

It was extremely difficult to get the cut-out part of the bishop head (I don't even remember what and how I modeled the head). However, it was a good practice and experience to model an irregular shape.

Horse

The horse took really, really long time to model due to its really complex shape of the head. (While I was modeling, it actually looked like a dog. So I had to remodel the horse piece more than 10 times to get the feeling of a horse).

Final Result

I was actually very satisfied with the end result, (although there is certainly room for improvements - both in modeling and texturing). However, I think it is a good practice to model something completely by myself, without following up a tutorial.
