Chess Battle



[UPDATED: Re-scanned the picture (sorry, it looks a bit bright now), uploaded a bigger and higher quality version and updated the watermarks]

This was my first (colored & finished) Harry Potter fanart ever. It's really old (summer 2001) but still one of my favorite pictures.
I clearly remember drawing the sketch one day in Photography class at the art school, while I was reading the first book during lunch breaks or when the teachers weren't looking. Later, in summer, I traced the sketch on watercolor paper and painted it.

This is inspired by the scene in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone where Harry, Ron and Hermione have to take part in some kind of live-action magical chess. And I decided to give them clothes that resembled the chess pieces they represent: castle, knight and bishop.
Painted with watercolors.
