Si Vis Pacem, Parra Bellum: If you want peace, prepare for war. Surely some of the most beautiful, advising words of the Latin Language.

As I'm sure many deviant's said before, your work is very thought provoking, yet I'm curious about your meaning of the white pieces behind enemy line. Was that intentional, or are my eyes really screwing with me?

Great angle and lighting! I love the composition, I'd maybe just leave some more space on the left side, I think that the lack of space on that side adds to the feeling of tilt. Maybe. Whatever the case may be, I think this is a great photo, and I'll give it a :+fav: :-)

yeah I see what you mean... thanks for the comment and the fav though

Nice! I've been wanting to do a cheess set shot for a long time.
DropKickLippy's avatar
you should... I'm planning on doing a reshoot anyway... newer pieces + newer studio ;)

The only thing that's kept me from it is that all I have are cheap little plastic pieces. I may do it anyway just to see what I can come up with.
DropKickLippy's avatar
plastic is better... the transparency gives it a better mood to the picture... In this photo mine were wooden and kinda old... anyway good luck!

Is it just me or are the black bishops wearing the pawn's heads for hats? Scary!
DropKickLippy's avatar
yeah you can see it that way... but it's no manipulation... that's how the set of pieces came in.
