The Game of Kings, Wave Eight: The Black King by 


The Black King
Artist: Simon Sherry
Biography: Danny

The culture of the Army of the Black Spear since time immemorial has been that of the warrior. Descendant of a hundred Kings, he holds the collective memory of all those that led before him. He knows the secrets of the Shaman and will settle for nothing less than total obedience from all that he controls.

Ironically, though he is a warrior King he has never seen face to face battle with an enemy due to his abilities as extreme commander, and the fact that Tribal Army law forbids him from entering any fray that could endanger his rule or life no matter how small the odds. Continually frustrated by this, he takes what small satisfaction he can from adding another notch to his throne as each opposing army falls.

    woah!! the moment is here… The King has arrived!
    I’m just imagining the white King and this guy on opposite ends of the board!! What a sight to behold! Both Kings really do scream Royalty.
    And that notch part of the story is so very original! It really would be quite boring for a Chess King, they really don’t see much action in chess terms do they… but when it comes down to it… they are the be all and end all of the game though. Checkmate! :)

    Thanks guys – glad you dig it. If there was one piece in this project I was most nervous about, it was this one, and he went through a few mutations before we got here.

    Speaking of process… a little glimpse of the vectors involved here:
