In this week’s Concept Art Writing Prompt, by artist Alexandra Semushina, two creatures are playing a game that doesn’t just involve strategy or luck; it also involves a bit of necromancy. What story will you write about this game, the players, and the stakes they’re playing for?

Each week, we try to spark a bit of inspiration by sharing an interesting image and inviting you to write a story based on that image. If you come up with a story inspired by this piece, please share it here in the comments.
