I have always found the asethetic of Chess pleasing. Without a doubt, most can at least faintly recall the first time they saw that cool looking toy horse on a checkered board.
To this day, I still enjoy OTB games so much more than online games because they give me this nostalgic feeling akin to being a kid, playing with toys. In other words, I simply like how Chess pieces look.
The Chess Set you see before you in an Executive Tournament Set that I simply painted. Once I was done, I decided to paint the board too. Overall I am happy with the look and feel inspired to try some other colors with other sets in the future. Furthermore, I have designed my own set and am currently sculpting pieces using a nice form of clay. Yet that will have to wait for a later post.
Thanks for reading.
