Legend of Zelda - Chess Set 01 by tomo-chi Legend of Zelda - Chess Set 01 by tomo-chi
My third project in ceramics this semester. Long story short, yes, it is a Zelda Chess Set. This took me over all about 30 hours, including building, painting, and finishing each piece by hand.

This is the profile view. I will be uploading other detail shots of the characters.

(I apologize if I put this in the wrong category. I was unable to find a ceramics/craft art under the Fan Art or Game listings)

Note: Several of you have asked why Midna is on "Gannon's side". My answer to that is this was less about a battle of Good verses Evil, as much as it was about opposites. For each shape/monster/person, I wanted to have their opposite be facing them on the board. Gannon and Link were the only two that I had decided needed to be on the board. Zelda and Midna are, quite literally, opposites from Twilight Princess. So I decided that was the best route to take, as opposed to Twinrova or someone else of 'less power'. <3

I SO want this... but it should have the dark triforce as well.
Put the top (or bottom) of it inside the regular Triforce.

It is my firm believe that you should pitch this to Nintendo.  They may say nay, they may say yea.  I would think a lot of fans would like the idea, and it would be a heck of a lot better than the one where Luigi is the queen.....

Like Like's have an uncanny resemblance to a rook piece...

What's the bishop piece on the "hero side"?

Zoras, from Ocarina of time (as opposed to the Zoras from the original game)

those are not Ocarina of Time Zoras. OoT Zora's were much more human like. I'm going to say these Zora's are from one of the newer games which I have not played. Maybe Minish cap or something. But definitely not the OoT species

That's what I meant. Zoras like the ones from Ocarina of Time, but in the more cartoony wind waker/minish cap style. I neglected to mention that.

I'm pretty sure the Zoras weren't even in Wind Waker though O_o

The head shape reminds me more of the newborns in Majora's Mask.

This is epic. But if I was to make this (which I might try but with polymer clay lol) I would do Ocarina of time vs Majora's mask because when I think of good vs evil in zelda games I think of Ocarina of time as good and Majora's mask as evil. Ocarina of time seems...lighter and happier then Majora's mask which is filled with creepy evil things. I would even go so far as to have the link statue (BEN) as the king on the evil side.

But you did a really good job and I think you should win an award or something for this, that's how epic it is.

...I think you should switch the rooks to bishops
Knights to rooks
and bishops to knights for the dark side

That way Gorons oppose Darknuts, River Zoras oppose Lake/Ocean Zoras, and Like-Likes oppose Deku-trees*... not the best fit at the end, but the first 2 work a bit better.

I don't remember the Wind Waker name for them...

This looks excellent though. Do you still have it?
