This image was created for the illustration challenge celebrating the ten years of existence of CGSociety. The goal was to find a clever way to interpret the number ten.
This short poem was written to accompany the final image.
Once upon a time there was a very brave knight with very bad luck.
Knowing his main flaw he swore passionately:
Never again will I play cards or anything shady!
Now he could not say why, maybe just to be cool,
but one special night, he betrayed his only rule.
Fate made it so that he lost every round,
and by the end of the night, he was stripped of his gown.
Hence from that day, because of his bad hand,
he was never seen on cards but as a mere naked ten.
