One of the first pieces I look at in a Chess set is the Knight (are they not the most iconic symbol of the game?). Sometimes they are as worthless as a dumb ass (donkey), and at other times they are as terrifying as a killer octopus. Nevertheless, Knights truly are the psychopaths of the Chess board (as IM Silman, a Knight fan, says). They are the one piece that does not follow linear paths, jumping wildly and at times unpredictably into an attack or defensive.
To this end, I decided to customize my own Knight (see the pictures below). It is a first concept and made of clay. I think the mane is a bit too long (Super Saiyan 3ish), and I am thinking of adding a bridle. Anyhow, I am looking for some feedback and curious to hear what others find attractive in a knight’s style. In other words, if you could customize your own Knight, what would it look like?
