Finally A Good Knight

It took 2 full nights, and if your observant, you will notice why. Its not the knight used in the example, but one from a set online, which I only had a front photo of. I had no luck extruding as far as the nose, so went back to freehand modeling followed by a lot of vertex tweeking to get this model right, Yes, it does contain a few triangles - but those are deliberate, to maintain the look of the original piece.

Were you going for the Official FIDE Chess Set? This took me hours too. I found a side view reference, so that helped me a lot. Here’s my go at it.


Thats brilliant, thanks for the link. I’ll be remodeling the chess set at the end, so will definitely use this reference.
