Managed to get myself in as a last-second replacement for
's chesspiece collaboration project XD;; so he's a liiiittle bit rushed. Used a stone pavement texture on overlay for a slightly marbleized look. :3 He looks like a Suikoden series reject ...
The pawn has always been my favourite piece. Sure, bishops and rooks are more useful, knights are more fun, the queen is more powerful and the king is more important - but there are just so many pawns, and they're so cute! XD And they easily have the most potential: many people, even non-chess players, are familiar with what happens once a pawn reaches the other side of the board. Considered the weakest at face value, they're every player's front line of defence, the little guys that just keep forging ahead no matter what.
And for the sake of everyone's time, I guess I should add that there's no point in fullviewing since the width of this image is basically the same size as the preview D=
