Your Move by SteveDelamare Your Move by SteveDelamare
Featured in IMAGINEFX magazine [link]

The great thing about DA is all the helpful comments you get. After several comments asking where the crown was, I realised I had missed a trick here so have changed the hair to represent a crown. It's not meant to be an actual queen, more a portrayal of a person's life choice.

I love the concept of this work and the lights and shadows and that the chess board isn't plain but has holes in it, which represents the life with it highs and lows very well :heart:

I agree with ~ales-kotnik. A crown would be a nice touch. IF it's the Queen.

:iconstevedelamare:
SteveDelamare Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2012  Professional General Artist
Thanks for clarifying the comment (the "IF")as its more metaphorical than a queen; but it did show that I missed a trick, so have redone the hair to suggest a crown. Cheers :)

Yeah, now it looks much better :) The hair are not much imposing but are merely suggesting a crown. Good job :thumbsup:

No problem. I just lover nitpicking at details... I think it's my peculiarity as an artist, that I try to fight with as it's slowly becoming an obsession >.>
