Thanks for the comment dude

Sketched some quick shoes, when with comfy/running shoes since bishops can spring across the board

Nice start. Would like to see more work put into the lips as they look a bit wonky right now. Same goes for the distance between the eyes

KIU!

You are totally right, there's nothing bishopy about it yet, I've been thinking of showing more of a funtionality to the character mimicking what a bishop actually those on the board.

For example he will have some type of rocket launcher mechanism that shoots diagonally like a bishop would move and defeat other pieces on the board.

Any suggestions? I'm have a picture of what I want the character to look, but I'm open to suggestions

I just don't want to add a funny hat and call it a bishop

Nice modeling so far but for the design it may easier to come up with a better grasp on vision if you work out the silhouette and design aspects first in 2d, photoshop or whatever. Tackling the basic design first will give you a better idea of what you really want to go with. What makes a bishop -a bishop, what aspects of the character can you use to then create a unique and intriguing design. You'll save a lot of time modeling when you have a clear image in your mind what you want. You'll still be able to sight see along the way and come up with new creative things along the way, but most importantly you'll know where you're going and get there faster. It's also then easier to change design features this way.

Ehm in swedish chess at least the bishop is actually called a "runner" so I think you can actually be spot on
