    CHESS - The Knight
    Videogame Character -
    This time it's serious.

    This is the story of the Chess Pieces BEFORE they become abstratc.
    A young King goes into adventure to find his missing parrents as the BLACK EVIL is conquering all the nearby lands.He will battle evil and he will have to cross to GODS territory to help the WHITE in the battle. When he will cross to the other world, he and his crew will be turned to what classical chess pieces are today. (abstract looking chess pieces)
    Back to the beginning of his adventure:
    In his journey he will make a party with other characters. The first to join him is the Knight.
    "Concept" this guy.

    Requirements.
    - His form should tell the player that he is the Knight - general knowledge - the horse head. Should explain why he turns into today's piece - also in the game... people should read well the board.
    - Should be specified why he attacks in L shape. (weapon, special move, description for the animation)
    - Should explain why there are 2 Knights alike in the same army.
    - Should explain why he is the only one that can "jump" another piece. Movements othe rthen JUMP - concept why he passes other pieces are encouraged.

    - OPTIONAL NOTE - King (with crown) is the tallest piece.


    Now... concept!

    I'm guessing it will be dificult to pass all that information with one single image, I guess it will either be necessary to make a composite image, unless you can explain all that in the text?

    composite - the character in full body pose (one view only is enough but feel free to develop it as you please) , additional images/sketches - like in a char sheet.

    the knight

    theKnights Darrel and Harreld are twins. Raised with horses. When they were born there were two foals born tha same night. so the the twins were raised ever together. Some of the people were unsure wheither the brothers could walk. with horses as their totem they joined the prince's forces as the the anchor of the messenger system and cavalry. they are so fast and agile that they are excellent scouts and spies, and as such are often where you don't expect them to be (three up and two over.....etc)

    Really cool topic, indeed. Great concept story.

    Gonna be hard to share a .psd though, since everyone will be using a different size canvas. However, what I feel is a decent size (and a fairly discrete border) would be:

    +4 pixels left, right and above
    +25 pixels down
    5pt arial font (or the equivalent size of another font)

    my mind is STEAMING with ideas!!!

    This one will be fantastic

    just to clarify - final piece must have a full body of the knight character - it can be in an environment or not - and also you could put the king in there as well?

    hehe, been slowly working on chess-themes pieces for a while now. Almost requires I do one here.

    CHOW#28 - CHESS - The Knight

    It was in the first days of the ascension of the boy king, His highness Sophos Peter Strategos, that the band of eight was formed. Eight generals, battlemasters of great prowess and loyalty to the young king.

    Of these the vanguard were the leaping spears of the sisters Lippezanne’. Ebon and Ivoire, mirror images of each other, bounding over lines of enemy troops on the hafts of their long spears, then cutting hard against the flanks of the enemy with the long bladed heads of those same weapons.

    Origin of the Knight FINAL

    A long time ago in a far off kingdom, whose name remains lost to us, lived a royal family. The king and queen of the family were bitterly torn by greed, pride, and the lust for power. The schism was so large that the armies became divided within the kingdom. The Queen had her army and the King had his. They separated but still lived under the same roof, designating their spaces by color. Living within the land was a witch, who grew tired of the quarreling within the family to whom the country looked for guidance. In an attempt to mend the wounds and have them see their flaws, the witch cast a spell, literally tearing the royals in two: their evil corrupted side on one hand, and what little virtuous side on the other. The dark side seeing they had more power tried to conquer it’s virtuous reflection for complete dominance. The virtuous side refused to surrender, and so began an epic battle that would unite King and Queen once again, but would sadly rage on for centuries and send their kingdom into peril. For their selfishness and lack of duty to rule their kingdom properly, the witch cast both armies into statues, and placed them on a battlefield that would forever be there home: the chessboard. Now the armies have eternity to try to solve their grievances through their players. If one side can ultimately claim their victory, than they may reclaim their humanity and rule once more.
    CHOW#28 - CHESS - The Knight
    Sir Roland of the King's Knights: Roland is of the King’s original knights and most loyal subjects. Although now united under one banner, Roland still shows favoritism towards his king. He is forever locked in his “L” motion attack so that at his first opportunity, he may jump in front of his King and protect him at all costs. The Witch saw that such a loyal subject shouldn’t go unrewarded, even if it was a curse. That is why Sir Roland and others who swore a similar oath of loyalty have been given the honor of making the first move in any battle, for his cause is noble and his motives pure. And what better icon to be than a royal steed, ready to gallop to his lord’s defense.

    just a note to help everyone out, the knights in chess are based on men that ride horses, hence the horsehead shaped peices and the ability to jump over others (because horses can jump over people).

    but thats only the reality, if there are more creative ideas on this one, i would absolutely love to see them.
    No!... Maybe..... Look, that was six weeks ago.

    It is not obvious to me, so as it is an old story, do that mean that we have to design something medieval? Can we try something a little more futuristic?
