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

This drawing is a freaking amazing. First off the shading and contrast of colors are epotime of professional work. Also, the line curving is fantastic. Fayren you'er truly a master of digital art.

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