Thanks a lot, Rita. I'm glad this 'old one' still gets a bit attention!

Thanks a lot! Yeah, chess is great (though I'm not a good player)! This is actually my second work connected to chess (this is the more dramatic version^^)!

Sandra, I love it, The use of the chess board is a great idea for the symbolic of war(I use it myself some times) The young woman is also done really well, with a wonderful pose and expression.
Bravo! Ken

Hey, being compared to Royo!? (Well, he's definitely better at the human figure)! Indeed I like to work with only a few colors. Maybe it's easier.

It is about 50 x 70 cm. So it is not so hard to work out all the details.

Took me forever to finish it (a couple of month because I didn't know how to go on after I did the basic sketch).
