Points for Ares~
. . . "You cease to amaze me with your lack of boundaries, Mikhail." As they spoke...the game went on in accordance below their observant gaze, the horned angel taking out the masked black one just before it was finished off by the black knight that had been the first to move. " Chess pieces are an excellent representation of reality. They will be thrown away and used as they are commanded....even if they desire to stray from their required path.....without the chess board...the only option left for a peice is to simply fall." Monidium's eyes did not leave mikhail once as he picked up Arctus's piece, knocking the Emiris piece onto its side.
"Are you ill, or just naturally this unpleasant?"
"I'd rather contract anthrax then further waste my time in your deplorable presence."
Just a little gift for for making the creepiest most bad-a villain ever.
After this huge RP we did where everything was a giant mess Mikhail and Monidium have been kind of unofficial rivals and I one day just randomly got the idea of them playing chess together.
No this pic isn't 100% canon. Parts of it are loosely but they've never actually played chess with each other. Think of it as one of those insert pics between chapters in a manga or something.
The chess pieces are SoC characters from the RP we did and I tried to place them in accordance to how the RP played through. Copy Emiris is near Kel, Mikhail has Faith in his hands since Emi took her out, Kein and Sasha got injured pretty early so I put them as taken to make it more like a chess match and other stuff. You can download to see them better.
Mikhail has cake and ice cream mostly just to annoy Monidium by eating during their match and in return Monidium brought a book to read and continue his other work.
Also, Monidium is trying to crush Mikhail's foot like a sore looser but it's not working so well since they're both wearing armor. I didn't do so good on that because it was already a pain to fit mister giant's legs under that table without making it over sized and dwarfing Mikhail. OTL
Chairs and table were props from Google Sketch up because I didn't want to spend forever on them and didn't want to design my own. They're altered to my liking though.
Monidium doesn't fit very well |D
And Mikhail's a midget compared to him.
I didn't do a background because I never planned on doing one other than white. =u=
anyways, enjoy the senselessness. =u=/

I absolutely LOVE the little contours of the chess figures-that is just wicked awesome.
The expressions in play as well are very pleasant XD I catch myself smirking as a spectator as well.
I love Monidiums nearmost 'pouty' demeanor. He's doing the best he can to swallow a snarl XD
I really love the taunt/tension here~<3
Haha, I thought they would be more fun than copying or designing my own boring chess pieces.
Haha XD That's great to hear. I had Sarim grinding her teeth at his smirk too while I was drawing it. She gave me a lot of pointers on Monidium's posture/expression too. ^^
I love the chess so much, but I love more how Mikhail eat cake and ice cream all happy while Monidium is all embittered xDDD.
very good work like always Aeal >w</
I love you people xD
And wow, lots of thought with the pieces and all! . . .though I should expect that from you now |D
mister giant x'D
I wouldn't put it passed Mikhail to get furniture slightly smaller than normal just to throw off Dium even more
Yeah I love symbolism and sticking small details in pics like that.
Maybe he did
I'm not coloring it, you're lucky I even put it up at all. |D
I don't think it's weird. I love seeing arcane looking books with notes and tags sticking out of them. XD
They look like fun~
