Checkmate Satan by Ry-Spirit Checkmate Satan by Ry-Spirit
"Checkmate! Satan." says the pretty angel to the disappointed King of Hell.

Another artwork for the Gods and Demons month, this time featuring a character from both sides! Had lots of difficulties getting it to look good, until I messed around with the lighting and shading. Anyway now I am quite happy about it. Thank god (excuse the reference).

Changes: OK now the check board makes sense, queen takes out King. The tiles is still wrong but thats because its the Hell Edition Chess Board, they play it differently over there.

Hm, why do people always portray checkmate as the King being taken out? That's not checkmate, and is pretty much just ceremonious showboating. Checkmate is when a situation is created wherein one player's King WOULD be taken on the next move by the opponent, without any way of avoiding it.

Looking at the pieces, the situation was there. Maybe the angel just wanted to make the king fall as a symbol.

OH MY GOD I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!

Eh...let me explain. So I love writing stories about Heaven and Hell, God and Satan. Well recently I wanted to do a story about Satan's daughter (who I have named Lucia) and well, myself, Amaris.

Well I couldn't for the life of me figure out how Lucia should look, but your angel has TOTALLY inspired me to draw her! So again I LOVE YOU! I'm going to give you a llama

"...So...? I dun even... I dun even care..." responded the Lord of the Damned, trying to think up an excuse to leave, not wanting the angel to see how hurt he was by the loss.

Uhmmmmmm Mary was the one who gave birth to JESUS, (the son) not God (the father).


Further-more, you just saying that, doesnt prove that it's in the bible....can you give me a verse or something ^^

No, but in the bible Jesus is the son of God but he's also God...

I don't even know, It's really complicated. this is why I don't believe in the bible even though I'm a Christian.
