"Facial expression and body language are the keys to success--the fear on the King's face in his Bishop's arms, who struggles to hold the weight of the King! The deadpan expression of the pawns, who in contrast to the King, have no fear doing their duties.
"The focus is the interplay between the King and the Bishop. Everything else is positioned to help tell the story, leading the viewer's eye straight to main concept of the cartoon." -Tony Sullivan
