Black Rook by finni Black Rook by finni

“Black Rook” — NPC illustration by Finni Chang

For Gaia Online’s December CI “Checkmate Tactics”, based on the Checkmate world created by fayren!

At first I was kind of intimidated to design a character based on a castle, where other chess pieces are more humanoid. In the end, I had a lot of fun repeating the rook’s battlements in various parts of the Black Rook character’s design, and gave him a pissed off paladin persona.

Check out some of my coworkers’ designs too!!
