I’ve been an avid fan of the Witcher since the first game release; since then I have read all the novels and played all the games. I was extremely exited when Netflix got the rights to make a TV Series and Henry Cavil was starring in it.
After I watched the Series, and seeing there was no title sequence it dawned on me that there was an opportunity to create my passion project.
Animated Main Title Sequence
A chess set implies a play with blacks and whites. I loved the work of Imaginary Forces on Black Sails and wanted to dive deep into texturing.
For the light pieces, after trying some silver, alabaster and marble I ended up deciding to go with an ivory material. Ivory was also used on the Lewis Chessmen. (Chess pieces from the 12th century.)
The Dark pieces were more straight forward. I based my material on old bronze statues that had worn of edges.
