After finishing a large section of the comic, I decided to take a few days break (or week). With that I dabbed around with some ideas and sketches, realizing I always wondered what it would be like if Arlo tried playing Archer in chess. While Arlo is definitely a bright kid, he's no match for Archer's wit and intellect. Archer's job is to think strategy, so chess is second nature to him. Considering Arlo loves to annoy Archer and exploit his OCD, this is a chance for Archer to shine. However, I hope he doesn't get TOO smug since he IS playing a 12 year old after all. :P

UPDATE: Fixed chess board.


Wonderful wonderful piece, really like the view of the piece! Keep up the great work!!

Want to comment a silly silly comment that's bothering my silly head, nothing serious for real! :D
But I tried to see in the story in this text/painting. Do Archer train Arlo to play chess or do they play a match? If they are playing, where the heck is the second king on the board? xD
Even if Arlo lost and maybe taking away his king, where is Archer's king?
Just a silly comment like you see, but I felt I needed to mention it for some stupid reason, haha xD
