Epic Chess Game by bezzalair Epic Chess Game by bezzalair
A commission for :iconarofexdracona:, wanting her two kings, Daikon and Zeminare have an epic chess battle. Daikon likes chess so he has a giant chess set in his back yard (he's the one standing on the rook in the distance having one of his servants push his chess piece. Zemi was pushing his own chess pieces so he got a bit tired and decided to sit down).

I wanted to try doing that thing again where I only ink closer objects and not further away objects. Kind of like when I did this image here: [link] I think it makes things easier to see when I do it that way... Though I might need more practice...

Chess piece references from: [link]
Again, I like the results of this better in real life. My scannings never make me happy. :(

Daikon and Zeminare belong to =Arofexdracona, please do not steal.
Artwork made by me, Caylee.

Those are some super eyecatching details in the chess pieces!inking the closer objects does add a sense of depth to it.
this may be a bit minor but I really do like the subtle reflection of the chesspieces in the board! <3

This is just pretty darn cool Caylee. You did a good job with handling each characters personalities and the colors themselves beautifully transition from one part of the piece to the next. The details on the actual chess pieces are my favorite thing. They look so ornate and fancy!

That epically pointing king there is beyond hilarious. I love all the buckles on...Zemi there. Buckles are always nice :D But I really like the details on all the chess-pieces. That knight in particular is awesome.

I like the effect you got here with inking the nearer items and the sexy-looking fellow. It worked for creating the illusion of depth and distance. Beautiful detailing on the black knight chesspiece. And I like Zeminare's armour, though all those buckles must be a pain to remove.

So how long did this take you? From like basic idea/concepts to when you finished?
bezzalair Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2013
I cannot say how long it has taken me because I was working on this on and off between other projects.
