Chess (Variant) Graphics by Jean Louis Cazaux. Icons of chess variant pieces.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

After several days of prompted pondering, I now realize I was holding these
icons to a standard of representational accuracy, which only applies here
in small measure, but which has ever been a critical concern with my own
artwork.  Without going into human recognition patterns and windows of art
imprinting, I'm content with the fact that others like them well enough to
so pointedly reject my critique and provoke my further education in what
makes a piece-set good. 
Magritte, thanks for the lesson.  Jean-Louis, maybe the Editors will let
me make it up to you with a better rating, which maybe I ought to do twice
to get the average up.
