There's nothing wrong with using reference as a guide which is all I suggested, it is difficult to draw those chess pieces from memory and they are most certainly more complex than the male/female icons. It was your statement that you lacked the skills that prompted me to ask.Your SBS doesn't show any steps in the liquify/warp creation of the pieces,step 4 just shows a silhouette with elliptical ridges and step 5 the lines added for detail. If you did create them without reference I'd say you do have the skills to have made the figures work contrary to your statement. Creating the pieces with liquify and warp without a base drawing seems a lot more difficult than drawing them digitally which is a more logical approach to me.

I tend to agree with MossyB's comment, the source wasn't really needed to create this. I'm also curious about your response, you say you lack the skills to make the male/female source figures look 3D yet you say you created the chess pieces yourself with liquify and warp. The figures are a very simple form and much easier to add dimension to them than to create the complex shapes of chessmen from scratch. You don't show any source for the chessmen but they're all in correct perspective with complex details. Wonder how this is possible?

The perspective of the play figures is not the same as the board, they should be leaning back a lil more

That looks cool, and sure Sparta is cool too. Very creative concept to bring up such idea - how about having a sign pointing downward to indicate Sparta's toilet is down there?

MossyB says:

You can't really tell you used the contest source, since a simple black and white square made with the rectangular marquee would accomplish the same thing...

Now, if you made the chess pieces better resemble the male and female figures, THAT would be creative, but this really is too CBR to be of much relationship to the contest source...

The identical heads on all the fireballs also seem unrealistic, especially given the variety of tails they create.

Why do they fireballs have a border? Makes them look a little fake to me. Great idea overall, good luck.
