Here’s an illustration I created recently as the front cover for an archaeology thesis regarding North Norwegian gaming counters from the medieval era. I like how this one came out. It shows an archaeologist holding a chess king as found today, and a medieval hand using the piece as it would have originally been, painted and new.

And below, an unused alternative digital-painty version.
