A dark pawn for use in chess board templates.

This is a series of chess pieces. The naming is Image:Chess_tile_ab.png, where a is the first letter of the piece (k for king, n for knight), and b is l for light, d for dark. The pieces all have transparent background color, so you can put them on a chess board of any color.

David Benbennick made this image on June 18, 2005. I used version 1.2 of Piet Tutelaers' TeX chess fonts, from CTAN, specifically chess.zip. I modified chess/mf/chess30.mf, changing "thin" to

thin#:=5/90*d#;

since the lines of the white pieces were too thin when scaled. Then I ran the following commands:

unzip chess.zip
cd chess
export MFINPUTS=$PWD/mf
echo chess30 | tex testfont "\table\bye"; dvips testfont -o chess30.ps
dvips -mode ljfzzz -D 1200 testfont.dvi -o chess30.ps
convert -density 1200 chess30.ps chess30.pnm

I used the Gimp to fill the interiors of the pieces as white instead of transparent. Also, there were some errors in the TeX font, which I corrected. (The dark king and queen weren't connected, and the dark bishop had some stray pixels, for example.) Finally, I converted all the images to black and white indexed to save space. (It's extremely annoying that I had to tell Gimp the images were black and white. Bah.)
