2 Cats Playing Chess .CREST. by mayuzane 2 Cats Playing Chess .CREST. by mayuzane
My 5th illustration for the CREST group's 2005 contest. Please read my journal for details on the contest as well as my progress.

About the pic:

Recognize these two? Aeris and Leo, the videogame-loving cats from the VG cats webcomic have just won the Game-O-Thon competition. However, they paid the price to win this coveted trophy: All their gaming platforms are broken!

With no other 'game' to pass the time with, they now play chess... unfortunately, Aeris lost her temper when she lost to Leo and proceed to break every chess piece with her bare hand XD The white pawn and black bishop are all that's left in this pic XD

Life without videogames is torture for VG Cats :P

Check out the comic here: [link]

Also, there's a VG cats club here on DA (unfortunately it doesn't update much):

Miscellaneous information:

Inked with a mouse, colored with combination of using tablet and mouse.
Software: Adobe Photoshop Ver. 7.0
Total Time Taken: 3 hours, from sketch to finish

"VG cats" webcomic, and characters "Leo" and "Aeris" are Scott Ramsoomair

I used to like chess, but I started disliking it after I lost to a 9-year-old in a match.

Btw, thanks for the fav

nice work... but you ought to resize the picture... it's too big... but that's not a big of a deal anyway

overall... nice work... adding more chess pieces to make it look like they're playing chess wont hurt

*Resizes picture*

Btw, there's a reason why there are so few chess pieces... she already broke the rest!! XD

haha.... makes sense... when I took a glimpse of the picture... the first thing that comes to my mind is that she's breaking the pieces because she's losing...
