The Games People Play

By chase
Something different..well,for me anyway Wink

A couple of images combined using layers & masks then another few layers with added textures.
Whilst it works for me generally, there are a couple of little niggles I need to iron out....another case of 'work in progress'.

Lit with a small torch.

Thanks for taking the time to look,your comments,as always,are appreciated.

Like the idea but how about a Pawn who would be King....and that shadow needs grounding to its subject, Mum.

Brilliant, I can see the point about grounding, but it's still very very good... Top notch

I have just remembered where I have seen this sort of image before, I would check out the work of Victoria Ivanova, (either on 1X for 500px).

Good idea Janet - I'm seeing halo's around the piece on the shadow side edges.

A pawn with ideas above its station. I like the idea of this. No the shadow isn't really anchored to the pawn, but that does rather suggest that it's trying to break free, and one thing that I love is shadows with a life of their own.
