+JMJ+As for this interesting stalemate . . .I just have to know: did you arrange the apples and the chessmen yourself, or did you happen to find them like that?
Sadly, I had to arrange them. I just grabbed whatever was at hand to draw, and didn't spend much time setting it up.I wish my surroundings were as romantic as to have fruits and chess pieces casually co-mingling, but alas, it just isn't so. :)
+JMJ+Coming back to it now, I see my favourite part about it is the poor, prone knight. I can't help thinking that it was knocked over by that audacious apple next to it. All the subtle strategies of the art of war have proven no match for a piece of fruit that follows its own rules.And now the pawn, the bishop and the king are scared . . . very scared.
That's my favourite part too. (It's also my favourite chess piece when actually playing chess.) I also felt that the apple had something to do with it!"All the subtle strategies of the art of war have proven no match for a piece of fruit that follows its own rules."You've drawn out a depth that now has me thinking. My drawing could have been better in delineating the pieces though: the pawn is a rook and the bishop is a queen. Also the actual chess pieces I drew from do not have strong characteristics, thus the translation in drawing becomes ambiguous.Oh, they *are* scared. What will be the outcome? I'm seeing all sorts of themes...
