The Black King by fayrenpickpocket The Black King by fayrenpickpocket
The Black King, a character from my Checkmate item on Gaia and also in this drawing. I plan on making a White Queen piece on her throne too.

This is one of those pieces that I wanted to be awesome and it ended up not being able to meet the expectations that I set out for it. I was moderately happy with it at first, but I can barely stand it anymore, which is why it took me so long to post. Unfortunately for me, I printed it on like all of my business cards and my convention banner. LOL = __=

I'm sorry Black!! I will do you more justice in my next painting of you T ~~~T

You should try to draw an actual black person as the black king. :C This is just misleading.

Why can't the Gaia items be as amazing looking as your art? So pretty. Art as beautiful as this just makes me wish Gaia had pretty avatar bases, to allow for sexier items. >: Can't wait to see the Queen.

You know you're (well were...) addicted to Gaia when you automatically know where the items came from without looking at the Artist's comments. XD I use to Checkmate so much when I was there. Nice job on the blue!

i think the coloring and the mood are fantastic. i hope you dont mind a critic but i really thought it was a girl and the title "black king" was ironic. completely spectacular work though!
