When I was not satisfied with my Wool and Water picture, because I wanted it to look more like this, softer and less rough, disjointed brush.
I'm practicing a new way to draw, something with less "useless details"

The Red Queen and White Queen of Alice: Through the Looking Glass
The strict Red Queen who never let her eye away from her enemy, and the "panic" White Queen who doesn't even know where to move her Knight (this time it's the White Queen, not the Old Sheep)
White Queen has a messy hair, so her hair is pops out here and there
Red Queen is inspired by Christina Aguilera
The death chess pieces are gone to nowhere....

Chess is definitely a mind war

using random Google reference for the chess pieces

Nice to see a chess/Through the Looking-glass artwork. I've preferred this to Wonderland and one of the main reasons is its chess theme.

This sorta reminds me of two of my OC's. The Chess Queen and The Queen of Cards. I based them off Alice in Wonderland characters along with their team members.

Spectacular, but the position on the board doesn't look very realistic.  It looks like the kings and queens are reversed.  If that is White's king over there in the corner, then White is in check.  Opening looks like it was a Benko Gambit.

It elates me so much, that your Red Queen was an actual chess representation. Everyone who has a "Red Queen" illustration up is actually a Queen of Hearts representation.
