Exclusive to: Don't Starve Together.
Sketches are Don't Starve Together exclusive items, introduced in A New Reign. They can be given to a Potter's Wheel to unlock a specific Chess Piece for crafting. Once the sketch is given to a Potter's Wheel, the figure becomes available to any player near the Potter's Wheel. Note that destroying a Potter's Wheel which has taken any Sketches will also drop the Sketches. Sketches have a fuel value of 15 seconds.
To obtain Sketches for Pawns and Queenly Figures, one needs to mine Marble Statues. For Kingly Figure Sketch, Maxwell Statue. For Rook, Bishop, and Knight Figure Sketches, Marble Sculpture of matching type (Note that Marble Sculptures need Suspicious Marble to be repaired and then to be destroyed at Full Moon to drop the sketch).
Performing each of the above actions will unlock the respective chess piece in the world. This allows for the matching trinket or sketch to be found in Tumbleweeds. Chess piece trinkets may be traded with the Pig King to obtain its corresponding sketches.
The Boss Monster Sketches are dropped by the Deerclops, Bearger, Moose/Goose, Dragonfly, Malbatross, Crab King, Ancient Fuelweaver, Toadstool, Klaus, Bee Queen, Antlion, Ancient Guardian, and Celestial Champion.
The Sketch itself is just about the shape of the piece to be crafted, the color of the crafted pieces will be determined based on the materials used to craft it, where using Marble results in a white piece, using Cut Stone results in a black piece, and using a Moon Shard results in a glassy blue piece.
The following Chess Pieces can be unlocked from their corresponding Sketches:
- The actual drawing on all Sketches is of an unmined Bishop Sculpture.
- Sketches were introduced in the Arts and Crafts update.
