Taking what I have learned about the tools in Medibang Paint and the reading and practice on shading I have been working on lately. I have accomplished this, not completely flat chess piece.
Looking closely you can still see sloppy drawing, inconsistent lighting, and other deficiencies but I was pretty excited about it for being a completely free-hand drawn, free-hand shaded piece of work straight from my mind (I was not looking at a chess piece nor picture of one when this was drawn.) It is clear what it is, which is great for me, especially that it captures a bit of depth vs flat.
Just wanted to share the feeling of making progress! Thanks for reading! I hope you have a great day!
