Chess pieces :: Peças de Xadrez

Some time ago I started creating a set of chess figures inspired by Dinko and Boris Tilov book “Mythical Creatures“. Their magical creatures are imaginative, humorous and brilliantly sculpted.

I don’t have any plan yet as to how the figures will look like except that they will be Vikings and Scots. I think it will be fun to see the characters come alive little by little to join their party and overcome the challenges of the more complex figures like the towers, the horses, bishop and king and queen.

In the meantime I have expanded my seal series with a silver coloured version and some earrings – still waiting for a brighter day for photos.

Há algum tempo atrás começei a fazer um conjunto de peças de xadrez inspiradas pelas personagens do Dinko e do Boris Tilov do livro “Mythical Creatures“. As peças deles são imaginativas, cheias de humor e moldadas de forma brilhante.

Ainda não tenho nenhum plano de como vou fazer as outras peças excepto que serão Vikings contra Escoceses. Acho que vai ser giro ver as figuras aparecerem aos poucos e ultrapassar o desafio das peças mais complexas como as torres, os cavalos, os bispos, o rei e a rainha.

Entretanto continuo a trabalhar na minha série de focas com uma versão prateada e brincos (que esperam melhores dias para fotografias).
