Execution

my first daily deviant and it also got me 100 dollars by getting second place in the Create a Feeling 2 contest...gooood times :)

and cause it seems to be frequently called out...yes the rope looks fake...i cooould have picked a better rope...but it wasn't photoshopped in! it was hanging from a stick that was sitting across 2 chairs...and the wind...OOOOOH the wind was relentless that day...took me forever to get the damn king to stop swinging hahaha

Yup, what ~p3NGu1Ns-gAloR3 said is true. [link]

I recognized your art while searching through screenshots. It's such a shame. =C You can read *Dametora's journal for updates. [link]

Hey there,

I'm just writing to let you know that I believe your artwork has been stolen by a man named Chad Love Lieberman.

Here's a link to the screenshot that contains your work [link]

I'm trying to help other artists to see if I can find any artwork of theirs as well so I'll leave you links to explain what's going on:

You're welcome. I just think it's unfair that people can just go ahead and take credit for what's not theirs. Not only is it rude, but also very disrespectful to the artists that produce them. No one wants to have people view their work and say "I saw this, it's very good... but I found it on this site that stole it from you."

Raindrops fall down, mixing with tears,
sorrow and hopelessness replacing fears.

The only one who weeps, she stands all alone.
All others stand silent, faces cold as stone.

Once a beloved monarch, to whom all bowed low,
now the next to be rid of, an accursed foe.

She is led up the gallows, and the king’s voice is heard:
“Should you now wish to speak, you may give your last words.”

Speaking so all can hear, but glaring at the queen’s face,
“That could have been your king in my husband’s place.”

Incredible. This image can lead one to so many philosophical conclusions. What is a king? A symbol of power that fills himself with gluttony of ego like a flask of whiskey being poured slowly down your throat. Well done. You earned your award. I can only wonder what could've outdone this.

Heeeeeeeeeey, I didn't think of the first idea. When I first saw the picture it looked as though she was waiting to be hung herself, seeing as all the other chess pieces were gathered around her, but why would they let her get so close to the clear king and queen? If she were a prisoner, they wouldn't want to let her lash out at the king and queen in a moment of desperate rage, the queen is a powerful chess piece after all. Maybe she is a traitor...

Hmmmm, I wonder why the knights have turned away from the execution, are they getting orders or something? Maybe they secretly respected the opaque king…
