Good vs Evil by delira Good vs Evil by delira
I think a chess table is a very good way to represent the battle between good and evil, something like there’s no good without evil and no evil without good.

my second entry

*edit: added the version with my signature
(was one of the contest rules not to have signature)

Magnificent work and a creative idea using chess as a means of showing good and evil


Reminds me of a game I play. Anyway, you have my vote

The chaotic look works, the dark shadows and the contrast between cold and warm colors makes this look impressive.

I like these chess pieces. They're creative! If this were a real chess game than good would lose because their king is right in the path of the queen. I love the expression on the piece in the bottom left corner. Reminds me a bit of a sad clown. Congratulations on reaching the semi-finals.

I like this. If chess was like this, it would be less boring to other people. No one wants to play with me and all.

Actually, this was the first thing that came to my mind when I saw this contest. So I'm glad someone came up with this. I love it, I might vote it.

:+fav: My pick of the finalists! I think this is the best depiction of the concept--without getting so supernatural, it represents a more down-to-earth, realistic representation of good vs. evil. (and it is beautifully done!)

Brilliant concept; agree completely with the idea of no good without evil, no evil without good; and this conveys that perfectly.

Love the symbolism throughout this image, and the amount of destruction from the collision of the two.

Wow, yes it is! A chess board is perfect to represent this kind of idea, very brilliant! I like your concept although it is in its entirety a bit too dark for my taste. I would have preferred, since it is about good and evil, to represent the good a bit more emphatically. nevertheless, great job :clap:
Good luck!

I like how you represented the "captured" pieces as trapped within tendrils. They're held away from the board but still visible and able to watch the rest of the conflict. Clever.

i did a picture just like dis 4 my entry, but instead with Winston Churchill and Adolf Hitler playing against each other, mine also had a window with soldiers on the pavement in the same formation as the chess pieces. anyway yours is a lot better, i guess u r waaaaaaaaaaaaay more experienced than me and your coloring techniques r soooooooo much better than mine, lastly i really like the way that the chess pieces are good and evil characters where as mine was the people moving the pieces being both good and evil,so anyway grate picture and good luck and if u do get a chance please can u look at my entry, i would be extremely grateful, so thanks anyway in advance if u do look. at it
