This project was created for a recent BlenderArtists.org challenge. "The End" was the theme of the challenge.
The inspiration here was chess, its various pieces (most notably the Rook), and the importance of the so-called "end game" in chess and strategies in general.
The project was created, rendered, and finalized entirely within Blender 2.79 (Cycles render, only procedural textures).
Thanks for viewing my work.
