I like the addition of the chess pieces - really adds to the grand manipulator part she plays. Also, that and the red kinda reminds me of the Queens in Alice in Wonderland - and how their crazy with power.
I love the chess concept where macbeth is concerned. Mostly because Macbeth isn't the instigator of any of it. Without her I think he'd have just gone "heh, these crazy witches said I could be king, as if LOL" but she went "actually.... we could do it"
The queen is the most powerful piece on the board, but the king is the one that matters. Coincidence?
you learn a certain apreciation after a while. Especially now that I can make my own judgements. I don't have a tutor ramming ideas that aren't mind down my throat, I only have to deal with what I think, not what some up themselves lit professor thinks.
