I'm a little slow sometimes. At first I was like "What does Billy Jean King have to do with it?" Then the lights went on and Billy Jean *KING* made sense. I smiled and chuckled a bit.

My critique. Try to blend the mouth, and eye. Maybe feather them in SLIGHTLTY w/ a mask? Maybe just some small amount of dark or semi dark, brushing, or maybe even an outer glow? Something similar for the chess pieces too. Sorry but I am such a stickler for details and some of the masks have some fringing. The Quick and Dirty way to do it is "Layer > Matting > Defringe" which take about 1 second. You can also clip a layer on top of them. Sometimes a Normal, Soft/Hard Light, Overlay, Multiply Layer will do. Then either sample some colors with your brush (via alt+left click)or even clone around the edge to "paint out" the fringing. Slight reflections on the ground may work too. Good shadowing under the hats.
