Show off. :buttrock:
The attitude you’ve instilled in each character is exceptional. The king is depicted well as the most humongous sod of all the pieces, able to do little, except hide behind a podium and demad sacrifices.
The floundering pawn on the left is whimsical, yet tragic. A fine contrast you have there, sir!
Chess should change its rules. The king piece should be allowed one atom bomb per game. If things get to tight, he is allowed to irridiate the board, and be the lone survivor in a nuclear wasteland.
Course, chess might loose it’s appeal then.
Also, I think these challenges are setup to make sure everyone submits their entires at the last minute. It keeps the forums active for months on end.
If everyone finished early, members might try something cheeky, like go outside and chase butterflies or some such shenanigan.
In any event, you fought off the last minute gremlins, and produced a top quality work.
Also, thanks for the generous comment on my really dreadful slop wad. Though I wish I could kick it in the teeth, and make it go down a hole. :shrug:
Hope to see another entry from you in the next Challenge.
