King to A5 - 32x9 Ultrawide by cwichura

My initial take on the "sexy chess players on a life-sized game board" theme that seems popular here at deviantART. The position of the pieces and the move in progress are from a famous match between two masters.

The chess pieces are all volumetric glass with an IOR of 2 (crystal). The white pieces have 0 absorption, white the black pieces have max absorption. I used the Sunny1 IBL from the Skies of Reality Volume Two to give the glass an environment to reflect. It's a little odd to have a chess board floating in the sky like this, but then with the way the figure in black is dressed in particular, it reminds me of the game Bayonetta with all the sequences in the sky. There are also two mesh lights, one to give the stronger shadows on the game board and the other at much lower power to provide a bit of fill, particularly for the figure in white.

Both figures are Genesis. I was surprised at how well the SugarV4 outfit was adapted by the transfer tool. The skirt was even almost usable, though I did end up just loading it and parenting it to the figure to avoid the problems it had in the back after conversion. Shoes, of course, are a lost cause with the transfer tool...

Since people invariably ask when my renders have a high S/p, this render took three i7 machines a little over 62 hours to reach 15,500 S/p.
