Devil's Play by TheWildGrape Devil's Play by TheWildGrape
Sand: "Please, do return my tower to it's place."
Neeshka: "...I don't believe you noticed."
Sand: "There was a tower, now it's gone. Even if the act of stealing in itself was impeccable - the result is still too obvious not to notice."
Neeshka: "..."
Sand: "It wouldn't have helped you anyway, my dear."
Neeshka: "...Shut up."
Sand: "I must say, you do add some new - and quite a ridiculous - level to the whole 'playing with the devil' concept."
Neeshka: "SHUT UP!"

Yep, Sand is like Julius Caesar, can do several things at once - read a book, pet the cat, play chess and be a smartass:)

I know that Jaral isn't supposed to be gray, but I hated adding the third colour :-X

My add to :iconneverwinter-tales: 'Monthly challenge' :dance:

Neverwinter Nights 2, Neeshka, Sand, Jaral Obsidian

This scene is phenomenal. From the multi-tasking ease of one, to the frustrated curses of another, the characters are alive. THe conversation just adds another dimension to your piece.

I love this. :XD: I am going to get this game soon, so... Maybe I'll understand the characters a bit more! :XD:

Нишка - да, прям на лице написано, что извилины вращаются))
Против серых котов ничего не имею (у самой серый), но вообще мне жёлто-пятнистая расцветка котячья в игре нравилась - на лесного кошака похож :aww:. Но тут жёлтый цвет никак не вписывался))

Я видела в одной передаче, как китаянки, в национальных длинных одеждах, играли в футбол. Вот и Сэнд так же :XD: Очень изящно, между прочим, выглядело )))

Although I like Jaral's colour and spots, yellow just wouldn't go in this red-blue picture :no:

:icondarthmael:
DarthMael Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
You could make him more reddish-orange than yellow, it would fit more that way :) Still, I'm not the one to advise you on this - I didn't even know Jaral's real color until a friend told me. I played NWN2 with a mod which added more color variety to animals - and it made Jaral a grey tabby in my game. :D

:iconthewildgrape:
TheWildGrape Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Still, even orange would contrast to much with Sand's cold blue. It'll look like Jaral is on Neeshka's side :D
My real-life cat is gray, so I, too, like 'em that way :aww:

:thumbsup: Looks like Neeska's king is in a quite ... precarious position. And Sand has designed his endgame the way I used to do it, when I was an active player centuries ago ;): a handfull of well-placed pawns, two rooks, a bishop (???? nice idea ;)) and a queen ....

What else can I say: I instantly loved the play of colors, how they are reflected in the players' pieces (although physically wrong :giggle:); in my imagination the backrest of Neeshka's chair looks like folded demon wings - it's intended, isn't it? :D

Ah, thanks for noticing the arragement of figures - not being a particular chess strategist (I usually play them like 'cavalry, attack!'), I've spent quite some time figuring how to place them:)
