Good Omens: Chess Players by Linnpuzzle Good Omens: Chess Players by Linnpuzzle
Fan art of Aziraphale and Crowley.

Boy, did I get lazy with the furniture and/or chess pieces. Shame on me.

Aziraphale -does- look awfully smug, but I'm willing to bet that Crowley has something up his sleeve. "Hey, look, is that a biscuit cart?"

Do you think tying in chess is a requirement of the Arrangement?
I like the picture. The modern and eden comparison is wicked.

It would certainly beat actually *fighting* each other like stereotypical demons and angels, I think. They seem too pacifistic for that.

Thank you so much!

I am particularly in love with the fact that Zira's hands are doing that pyramid thing that Donald Trump does. Zira kows his shit.

The stained glass window's a very nice touch.

I love.

Oh, this is gorgeous.
I love the stained glass window, with the angel and the serpent, and I lovethe lighting! (Is this my imagination, or was it intended for Aziraphale to be mostly in sun, and Crowley to be mostly in shadow?)
I also adore the expressions you drew. Crowley definitely looks like he's trying to bet Aziraphale, and Aziraphale just looks like he's waiting to see just what Crowley will do next.
This is spectacular! I can definitely see them playing chess.

Oh it is so lovely. Good work with not drawing additional furniture, IMMLO it would have just cluttered up the scene and distracted from the beautiful stained glass window. I love the expressions on both of them, Crowleys sunglasses and the strange way Aziraphale looks at him. If I can ever decide on favorite Pratchett characters, it might just be these two.

But what does the symbol on the angel's chest mean? It looks like a cross, but different. A wound? Or is that just "what do you mean it's not symbolic" ?

The laziness adds some more style. Love the little touch of Aziraphale's head glowing. One very patient and one looking deep in thought (or rather plot). Brill job.
