Here is the version with background. The photo is a little but more contrasted, than real colours. May be will add some more colour to make background "cloudy"

I like the soft yellow background. It will be a wonderful surprise for your brother.

Makes me want to do it.. I love it.. I have always wanted to do either eggs on a black and white checkerboard with reflections or one something like this. Nice choice!

I like it with the bit more contrast. It's turning out great.

Take a look at the shadows of the knight and the king. They make the board look like it has a hump in it. The shadows don't look flat. Otherwise, I'm loving it.

Wassie, I do see there humps also, but can not get why is it so. The board between light and dark parts of shadow is v.obvious and sharp. I tried to it like this, but ended in waves. More over, paper became peevish. I just afraid to spoil, if I start correcting. Thinking it over and over again...

Well, friends.
What about fixative? Do I need it really? I've bought a hair-spray and tested it on a piece of paper. Surprisingly, the colours became even more bright, but have not changed abrupt. Though, I will tell bro not to put the drawing on direct sunrays.

In the reference, the king's shadow also looks like there is a bump in the board. My guess is, it's because the shadow's outlines change right where the colours of the board change. If you cheat a little here and straighten the shadow at the border where the two colours meet and move the curves of the shadow towards the inside of the square, that might flatten the illusion of a bump.

I would not spray it. Coloured pencils do not require fixative. I do not even spray my pastels. It's always best not to add what is not necessary; fixatives do tend to darken and dampen the colours plus hairspray might yellow the paper after a while.
