My third project in ceramics this semester. Long story short, yes, it is a Zelda Chess Set. This took me over all about 30 hours, including building, painting, and finishing each piece by hand.
This is the profile view. I will be uploading other detail shots of the characters.
(I apologize if I put this in the wrong category. I was unable to find a ceramics/craft art under the Fan Art or Game listings)
Note: Several of you have asked why Midna is on "Gannon's side". My answer to that is this was less about a battle of Good verses Evil, as much as it was about opposites. For each shape/monster/person, I wanted to have their opposite be facing them on the board. Gannon and Link were the only two that I had decided needed to be on the board. Zelda and Midna are, quite literally, opposites from Twilight Princess. So I decided that was the best route to take, as opposed to Twinrova or someone else of 'less power'. <3
For all of you who wondered how I made the glove for Freddy Krueger
Now that I re-read it, I kind of make it look harder than it really is. I have zero knowledge of craftsmanship, this is something I think that anyone can do at home with pretty much any material. I was in a garage in the middle of nowhere and just took what I could find, ha ha.
Feel free to note or comment if you have any questions.
Being unhappy with how version 1 turned out (im to much of a detail nut) This helm fits like a glove unlike version 1 that had a bicycle helm in it to keep it in place. This one being smaller and tighter gives me much more head movement than the V1 build. Though due to the smaller size it may not fit the original cooling system. The holes in the helm will be filled with a 16 mm button mock up that resembles a large rivet. 1 of the other pics shows 1 of the buttons in it.
