So the lips are designed after a checkerboard. I know the game of chess to be a game of chess that can be personally taxing at times. It's not a game that people like to lose to because of the amount of thought that is invested into a single game. But at the beginning, both opponents are equal in terms of resources and footing. But yes, but the idea is to end up with your opponents king piece.

Seeing how the black king piece is positioned against the lips, and how the mouth is positioned - I see you as being in a time of secretive thought. You're really contemplating what you are going to say next, good or bad, true or false. So as not to empower the person you are speaking to, I could see you being careful not to give away truths or secrets. This is a time when you really see dialogue as a game of strategy, or even a mild battle of egos. Seeing how this picture is void of color, I see a coldness that goes with how you are interacting with the person that you are speaking with. But it is here that you are very fixed on winning this argument or dialogue that you can taste that black king piece.

I would love to have this picture as a book cover to a book that talks about how to win an argument, or how to negotiate, or even how to catch someone in a lie. But surely this picture illustrates a fact of life, because we do at times have to speak to someone else as though we were playing an intricate game of chess. This picture is a visual form of "food for thought."

It's very interesting to look at, and very well made. Good Work!

The editing on this is spectacular!! This would be so hard for anybody to do, and I am amazed! (i think you should post more tutorials!) One of my favorite parts of this piece is how you added emphasis to the point with the king resting on your lips! But it also added contrast and beauty with the whitened skin behind it! I just love it! Please keep up the good work! I love how you use different mediums for each of your works, like eyeliner, stencils, eyeshadows, glitter, and others! This is definitely one of my favorites! Keep it up!

Wow. This has to be my most favourite piece!
The checkered pattern is very solid and well done. <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/> I just can't imagine how long it took you to do it.
And the Black chest piece is a nice touch. I also like the fact that the skin is white, making the checkered pattern stand out. ^ ^ I could just stare at this all day. <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/r/r…" width="15" height="15" alt="=P" title="=P (Razz)"/>

I want to point out is that small background. Its fuzzy so our attention looks at the lips and chess piece. But my eyes just keep following to look back at it. But I'm not saying you should never have something like this. <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/a/a…" width="19" height="19" alt="^^;" title="Sweating a little..."/> Maybe not have it too edited?

But other then that, this is a very creative and gorgeous piece! I can't wait to see more of your works! <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/>

Wow. This is absolutley amazing. The detail of the lip design is well done, and it really portrays a checker board! It's also very original. The checker board's design is perfect; the squares stay in line and create the perfect effect. It's just beautiful! This is really impressive! It definitley must have taken you some time to get it just right! <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> I never would've been able to do it like that. This is now my favourite make up design you've made. It is just.... wow. It's breath taking, and it's definitley an eye catcher for sure! <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> Love it.

Also, I notice you use a lot of black in your work, what brand of black lipstick do you use? I've been looking for a good one.
