I am a Korean concept artist who goes by the pseudo-name “Soo.K”

Always intent on crafting new unique character designs, I decided to do a personification of chess pieces by giving each one of them a human character.

I tried to put emphasis on the head designs and characteristics of each chess game piece, as well as, their functions. My overall goal here was to combine the familiar look of the table game piece with my own interpretation.

Naturally, black and white were heavily used for these cool characters, as they are primary colors associated with the game of chess.

Thank you, and I hope you enjoy these character drawings!
