Tower Board
Do you want to play a game?

No, seriously... do you? I'm developing a new kind of board game for this book I've been working on for the better part of my life. The game is thematically relevant to the story, and the board and the pieces will be used for cover and chapter header illustrations.

The game is meant to be versatile and customizable, where any number of players (realistically 2-9) could create their own modes of gameplay using a universal set of rules. I don't have all the kinks worked out yet, but I'm working on it.

I made this in Cinema 4D. It's really just a cylinder with a material over it. The masks and design from Illustrator are what really make it look great. I've been fiddling with C4D's physical renderer and today I turned on 'progressive' mode. After 30 minutes, and over 300 passes, I decided to end the render and save the image. I didn't need to wait 3 more hours for it to reach a marginally better result. 

Overall, the physical renderer is amazing, and progressive mode really takes the sampling to a whole new level... but this scene just wasn't complex enough to really warrant using it to its full potential.
