Isometric chess pieces are harder to make than I thought. And yes, it's a nerdy joke.

UPDATE: Rotated the cross on top of the king piece until it matched the isometric lines of the chess squares (less frontal now). To answer any questions, I drew the entire chess set then threw away the pieces I didn't need.

 Very nice, but isn't that Punisher instead of kingpin? :D

I never mentioned how much I like that blue amongst them browns.

user
A.B. (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 2/24/2008 13:06
Aye, best move.

user
funcravers (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 2/24/2008 11:31
@A.B.
No, i think you must be retarted. The black peice is equipped with a suicide vest.

user
Shrub (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/20/2008 12:03
Wow, love the colours, shading, and the shiny board and pieces.

user
maunokki (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/18/2008 12:24
Nice one!

user
cervical_lordosis (Level 1 Depressed) @ 2/13/2008 05:33
Great use of colors.

user
A.B. (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 12/10/2007 23:41

If it's white's turn, it's stalemate, if it's black's turn, black can take the bishop and lose, or move one forward and it will end like stalemate.

Am i right? :D

Anyway, 6/6. Awsome use and choice of colours, and because of that, I'll fave it. :P

Tommy (Level 1 Private) @ 12/3/2007 23:03
Very good job! low amount of color, but great placement!

user
Kaiseto (Level 6 Made) @ 4/12/2007 15:44
Definitely like the sheen to the pieces and board.

user
murd3rkitty (Level 1 Depressed) @ 11/14/2006 10:34

Delicious.  Fine detail, great shading.  It all looks very cartoony... like something from a comic book.  (Hmm... wonder why?...)  Your work never fails to amaze me!

A nerdy joke, but a mighty good looking nerdy joke :)

user
Agaki (Level 1 Intern) @ 4/1/2006 18:51
I still dont get it.
Anyway, amazingness with 10 colours.

user
big brother (Level 11 Admiral) @ 1/30/2006 22:25
Good call, Blick. In addition, the chess situation depicted here would be known as a "king pin" (absolute), since the bishop cannot legally be moved.

user
CDI (Level 5 Detective) @ 1/30/2006 17:26
dude... I totally get it... (not that I didn't before) but when it's all in the same place... wow great stuff, just noticed something, ONLY 10 colors!!! wow

user
Blick (Level 6 Commander) @ 1/30/2006 17:24
Okay guys, here's the joke. The Punisher's real name is Frank Castle and his enemy is Kingpin. The bishop piece is Howard Saint who is the one that ordered the massacre on the Castle family.

Hilarity ensues.

user
CDI (Level 5 Detective) @ 1/30/2006 17:15

that HAS to be a chess set, I'd buy it right away :D awsome *5 *fav


user

user
big brother (Level 11 Admiral) @ 1/29/2006 16:59
What was the Punisher's real name? The name of his nemesis?

user
DeathByChris (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 1/29/2006 12:07

Absolutely impressive. The only thing is the cross on the king is not iso. Still a fave.

user

absolutely fantastic. I love the shine on these. Great colours as well. Would love to see a whole board made like this and maybe an actual game.
