Checkmate by ajinak Checkmate by ajinak
No matter what colour we wear. Time and again we find ourselves on places we've never planned to be and everything seems to be just game of someone else. You know that feeling?

This is beautifully done. Her expression is just gorgeous. The textures and shading/highlighting really stand out! Great color scheme, too. Overall, I really think it's one of the best things I've seen on DA in a long time.

Oh cool! I can't believe we both ended up with the same title and concept >< I was originally going to call mine "Too quick to judge?" but it didn't suit and my boyfriend suggested Checkmate haha!
Nice pic :D

This is the most original interpretation of the theme I've seen! I really enjoy that you've used chess as the driving metaphor.

The shading and texture look quite fantastic. I also really like your comments about the piece, I think it gives it a lot more depth. And also, I think the faces and the horse look very realistic. This is a lovely artwork.

thanks a lot for this comment.. I'm glad you liked the faces, because just now I'm practising to achieve a bit more realistic look, so I made faces of figures without reference.. I'm glad it seems to work :)
