I'm really pleased with this. I wanted to add deeper shading and a more interesting perspective. In the past I rarely used compositions like this with a character mostly out of shot, but I think it worked well here.
I did experiment with different coloured checks on the board, mainly pink and blue, but I liked the pale and red wood best. I also tried adding extra playing pieces of different characters but I preferred the sole piece alone.
Once agin done purely in photoshop, which proved very useful when adjusting the perspective of the game board.
edit: Wow, 300 favorites. Thank you everyone.
