I read The White King by György Dragomán (his website: [link]), and it captured me, I knew I had to make a drawing of it :P. I recommend that book to all of you :aww:

Wow, nice! I like this twisty chessboard (I used to doodle some similar things during lessons :P) and the dark theme.
But I don't like the book anyway...

Thanks :) Which lessons? Literature? :D

Np :) Mostly, yes, on literature, when I ran out of quotes from the Dance of the Vampires :D

Looks great! I love the cross on the top- it looks really really good-

One thing though, it looks kind of bent to me because of the angle of the bottom of the king when compared to the top. If the bottom was a little bit more of a full circle it would look a little better in my opinion,

If it was intentional I apologize :D

Just an opinion, pay it no mind.

Thanks :) Indeed, you're right :P I observed it too, but only after I drew it, so I was a bit lazy to correct it. Otherwise, I think this makes the whole picture more irrealistic, so in my opinion it fits to the style. But you're right and thanks for the remark :aww:

:D Yeah it doesn't really take away from it much because it does indeed fit the style. The whole picture is a little warped and fluid so it fits well :D

You're quite welcome! Anything I can do to help!

But I do love the background as well :D and the dainty white lines- very delicate and beautiful.
