The Chess Game by SiverCat The Chess Game by SiverCat
Well, I finally actually tried lil' people sitting in chairs-something I kept meaning to try but never got around to it.
I'd already made the chess set a while ago, but finally made use of it :D
I took a dose of nerdiness....or maybe just persnickettiness and actually moved their pieces in turns to get a game that was accurate and legal.

Your little people actually remind me of Legos. =P

And a very nicely modeled chess set there. Playing it out ftw =D

Hehheh. You're not the only one who's been reminded of Lego :D

Thank you very much! :D I wanted accuracy...

=P Are they perhaps an inspiration of sorts or did it just turn out that way?

Your welcome =D Good accuracy like that shows attention to detail, always a good thing.

No actually. I took some inspiration from the older SNES Final Fantasies.

Like Final Fantasy IV? I think that was the one on the SNES at any rate.

I got a little inspiration from them all - FFIV, V and VI.

Yeah, all of those have a very similar art style. Perhaps even a little from VII, their 3d heads and arms I think are similar.

I hadn't played VII when I made the originals...still haven't played it a lot...I originally made them with the vague idea of game my dad and I had, but it never went anywhere except lot of lil' people lol.

Congrats for the, uh, improvements? xD

Heh, it takes dedication to make the whole chess game, and then to recreate it on screen!

What do you mean? Improvements?

The whole thing was made on screen, no recreating. Maybe I'm just understanding what you mean?

Well, you said you had difficulty sitting them on a chair? ^^;

Wait, so... You moved the pieces around on screen to simulate a chess game? :o

It's not something I'd ever done. Actually at least in the noble's case, it was surprisingly easy.

Yes I did. It's just like moving anything else...only one piece at a time-white piece then black then white and so forth.

Wow! This one's very good! :wow:
Love that chess set, it's so well made. So you actually moved the pieces so it would look more accurate? Very detailed! :D

Thank you so much! :glomp:

Yes, I did, though like I said to someone else I think it might have been easier doing it that way rather than randomly placing them, and I did want accuracy.

Thank you! The wizard was going to win, but the noble realised his king was about to be checked and is moving it now. I don't know who is winning now :)

lol That sounds really detailed. I would have just put them random places, and endured the comments. lol

I figured it might actually be easier to place them as though taking turns then just trying to decide where to place them. And, I wanted everything to look good...so, I suppose some pride played into it.
