|Just as with our terracotta pot, we'll start by selecting your Pen Tool and make the Fill Colour 'None' and the Stroke Colour a nice, slightly dirty white (I used #E6E7E8), and make the line thickness 1px.
Note: When you want to draw/convert a piece to black, use Fill Colour 'None' and a Black Stroke.
Draw just one half of what you'd imagine a chess piece would look like. You can always right-click the image to the right, paste it into a new Illustrator document, resize it and create a new layer above it to use as a guide.
With the shape selected, go to Effect...3D...Revolve. Apply the settings you see in the image below. Also, add another highlight by clicking the New Light button.
