Vector Revolved Chess pieces

Revolve. A handy 3D Illustrator effect. Made in Adobe Illustrator by Alex Amiot


Revolve this.


Let’s illustrate some chess pieces.  You can do this.  Forget that you’ve never used Adobe Illustrator before.

It’s a simple matter of drawing the curvy shape to the left.  This half-outline of a chess piece (queen, maybe?) turns into the upright white chess piece above when you apply Illustrator’s 3D effect: Revolve.

I followed a tutorial called Create a Checkered 3D Chess Figure Scene to produce my illustration.

Take that Bobby Fischer.
