Yes I actually have another test colorway.. It's the opposite translucent orange with a black core and it looks awesome. I will tease it later if you want. I was going to take a poll on other options as well.. I would also like to do 3 inchers to make them more affordable even sell them as a pair if you want a full chess board. But they are slow going in sales. Just a few more sales and I could do another colorway.. Since I'm new I'm not getting the exposure of some of the bigger artist. But I understand and I'm ok with that. I do hope they catch on though, I'm very happy you like the piece.

Yeah, I love these! I'm sorry I can't support you; I don't have much budget for toys these days, and my collection is limited to black and green pieces. The smaller size/price tag is intriguing as well.

Keep up the awesome work!

Wow, you grabbed my attention with the OG Rook, but that reverse colorway, with the orange on the outside...that one has me salivating!

I definitely would like to see your take on the entire chessboard.

Keep up the great work!

thank you! As of right now i have the bishop and pawns designs finalized and working on the 3d models of them. im still working on the other pieces which i have plenty of time to do.

i have to say i do like the orange alot its more striking than the black due to its transparency and how it reflects light. i hope these guys work out, im so close to hitting the mark to follow through with the orange ones. just need a little bit more of a following.

An entire chess board with black/orange (in place of the usual black/white) would be awesome!

It's a fairly safe bet that I'll be buying the orange version.

I could totally see maybe a few different color ways mixed in as "chases".

These are beautiful! Especially that orange one with the black center. It looks oddly..delicious? :) As others have said, I would also be interested in a smaller version of this. Looking forward to your designs of the other chess pieces :D

Love these guys! The black and orange combinations are fantastic. There are some toys out there with that combo but not too many so these really stand out. Oh, if I had the finances... I would love to have a set of these guys!

What this guy said! But seriously, that Bishop is f_cking awesome. The Pawn is sweet too. And if Igor likes your work, you know you're on to something good... :partyman:

I just gave you a quick plug on my IG, I hope you don't mind. We have almost the same number of followers, so I don't know how much exposure it'll actually give you, but I really want to see your ideas take hold! :D
