A simple wallpaper with double entendre :-) for those who, like me, have lots of icons on desktop lately. As always, Adobe Photoshop only. More sizes, download for mobile phones, send as e-card to friends: Thanks!

Gave me a good belly laugh when I saw this in it's full size. Reduced, it almost looks like Mr. Pawn is tipping his hat to M'Lady.

Nicely done :o)

PS - in a second version, you suppose the queen could be given a bit of expression as well? the possibilities are endless..

Please, even if you don't visit my gallery, check out my "Faves".I've left them intact since day "1", and would like it if every image there got the attention they deserved.

Funny wallpaper. I wish I saw the queen eyes. I do like the colors and shadows and the pun. Is a "double entendre" a "sous-entendu" ? It's the 1st time I read that expression, and I am french. By the way I luv those ghost at you web site.

Very clever and really a great candidate for a desktop. Like Rob above I too thought the pawn was tipping its hat to the queen when viewing the thumbnail. Didn't appreciate your double entendre till viewing full screen and then had myself a good chuckle ... Thanks !!!

at first, I also thought that the pawn is taking his hat off in front of the queen but its a diff story once I enlarged it.
Beautiful in its simplicity..

Hey awesome job! I like the joke but is there any chance you could upload the plain version of this -> the pawn without the arms, eyes, or camera?
