Robotic chess

Artworks for a space comic

The following renders are examples, sketches and skribbles of a project I do in my spare time with Cinema 4D and MODO. The storyline is quite complex, because there are no protagonists at all, only philosophical questions and cultural artefacts. The framework is a match of chess. The only difference: The figures are robotic fighters, with their own characters and features.

The progress of this ambitious project is not yet very advanced but I think it is necessary for my inner motivation to show the concept sketches here.

I like the Victoranian look somehow, although it differs extermely from the other pictures...
