Rook 1995-2011 by DBed Rook 1995-2011 by DBed
Another character from my past. This one I drew back in high school.

I went for a "marblier" appearance.

It's like you changed him from a hero to a villainous minion. But they both look cool.

I too like the idea of a modernized version of his "classic" look! What exactly are his abilities? Yet another remarkable piece of artwork!:D

I'm thinking an invulnerable marble armor with a high powered energy core that he can focus into beams... and thanks!

Very cool, always good to see your redesigns of your earlier work. Have you thought of doing other chess piece characters?

I have always wanted to do a full set. Every time I start, though, I like a design too much and want to spin it off into its own thing.

he does look like he could guest star in Earth's Mightiest Heroes, but i do like the effects better in the '95 version.

Nice designs, 95 Rook looks like he jumped out of a classic comic and 2011 Rook looks like he jumped straight out of a cool as hell cartoon :D
