Escher Chess Set

Inspired by Escher

This project was inspired by my trip to M.C. Escher museum in Holland. I have always found Escher’s work very inspiring and even more so after seeing how he created many of his pieces. After returning to the U.S. I felt compelled to do something that drew on my experience there. I choose several of Escher’s icon works for each of piece of the chess set.
All modeling and materials were done in 3ds Max. Final render was done using the Vray rendering engine.

Software Used: 3ds max and Vray
