Vivi, Zidane: checkers by Crispy-Gypsy Vivi, Zidane: checkers by Crispy-Gypsy
Commissioned by SilentTinSoldier on Tumblr

Vivi and Zidane playing checkers--Vivi is winning, and Zidane is trying too hard to find a winning strategy.

So much fun to do. I can't even describe.

Great art. I would like to ask for permission using it in my future website that probably will run in one year. 
I will credit your work or if you have some preferences, please tell me. 

I'm eager to hear from you. 
Thank you.

Anyone else thinking that Vivi's changing the piece's colors to mess with him?

Shouldn't the chairs be the other way around? Vivi needs a higher one, methinks. lol

I'll have you know that I generally detest sunny afternoons, except for those that matter.

But this one... looks like it could have been one of those that mattered.

Zidane's expression is too cute~! :meow:
I could totally imagine Vivi pwning everyone at board games - I'm sure he'd just have dumb/beginner's luck, too! xD

Awesome fanart! I love your attention to detail.
I was a bit thrown off by Vivi's expression at first - is he tilting his head to the side? ^^;
His face is so weird, y'know? Just two yellow orbs of light for eyes within an abyss of darkness... xD

If you look at actual art of Vivi, you can see the curve of a face underneath the hat. And He does a lot of head tilting in the game.

Sure it's an abyss of black, but it's a ROUND abyss of black.

Haha this is such an awesome pic, I love this! I love the way you drew them all! Vivi looks so adorable there with the head tilt, and I love the way you drew Zidane, he looks hilarious like he's thinking a little too hard there, and I love that you drew him with a short pony tail the way he was originally, instead of one that's almost as long as his tail :x Lovely job, this piece is very well done!

Vivi then tilts his head at you and stutters out an apology whilst wringing his hands, not very certain as to what he is apologizing for but feeling the need to apologize anyway, you know, if it'll make you feel better.

this was so purtiful and funny. It truly captures the struggle of 2 minds in one of the greater games of board based stratagem. Oooooooor it could just be hilarious in how it shows a situation perfectly possible between the 2.
