Jellyfish chess set

For this assignment we are to create a group chess set modeling a traditional chess set pieces with a “sea theme”. For my individual chess piece, I was given the task of creating the queen with a base of 45mm and height of 75mm.

I began with a basic half sphere for the “head” and raised it 20mm vertically.

Next I started to work on the “legs” by using the letter “J” as it seemed the most appropriate to add a style to the piece.

Next I duplicated the the “J’s” and attached them to the half sphere. I also added 2 straight lines to the center of the bottom of the half sphere for added support.

Finally I grouped all the pieces together for one complete chess piece and adjusted the height to the appropriate dimensions.
