Checkmate Satan

By Ry-Spirit
"Checkmate! Satan." says the pretty angel to the disappointed King of Hell.

Another artwork for the Gods and Demons month, this time featuring a character from both sides! Had lots of difficulties getting it to look good, until I messed around with the lighting and shading. Anyway now I am quite happy about it. Thank god (excuse the reference).

Changes: OK now the check board makes sense, queen takes out King. The tiles is still wrong but thats because its the Hell Edition Chess Board, they play it differently over there.

Hm, why do people always portray checkmate as the King being taken out? That's not checkmate, and is pretty much just ceremonious showboating. Checkmate is when a situation is created wherein one player's King WOULD be taken on the next move by the opponent, without any way of avoiding it.

Looking at the pieces, the situation was there. Maybe the angel just wanted to make the king fall as a symbol.
