Black Queen by DeadInTheAttic Black Queen by DeadInTheAttic
Concept:

For a contest of 'Alice in Wonderland' by Tim Burton I decided to pick the White Queen and reveal her real character.
Just look at the dark hair, eyes and lips and you will see, that there's a goth inside. And here it goes.
The White Rabbit is flabbergasted by her look, the spiderwebs at the door make the cat look drooling and perhaps the rabbit also is flabbergasted by seeing dame-stones where he supposed chess-figures.

My theme song for this is 'Collide - White Rabbit (Jefferson Airplane cover)'.


Nice to know:

Chess is an old chinese war game, training in strategy and tactics. And many other games derived from that, not only some kind of 3d-chess in the series of 'Star Trek'. Imagine all those table-top games and those basing on hex-fields.


Technics:

After picking many references I created some rough drawings, which I used to illustrate this within Photoshop.
My usual technic is similar to airbrush. Masking the single elements (so I don't need to take that much care of the borders later on). Custom texture brushes increase the credibility. The original size would fit on a poster.
By example the robe has been made by several strokes of a smooth standard brush of Photoshop. Afterwards I used the liquify-filter to increase the sharpness of the edges and painted textures over it in different layer modes.

Wow, I think this is amazing, and you really have a good angle at the White Queen!! I also thought when I saw her that maybe she covered up the black with the white on purpose or something!!! xD
