Who cares! It's pretty, kind of like ... a snowflake!
You get a gold star.
Trivially no, even if White king is not in check.
But let's make it even better. There, I believe this one looks better.
A snowstorm blows in! I think we can expect some more snowflakes ANY day now...
That one is clearly not legal, for chaotic_iak I have to think a bit.
edit: No, white needs too much captures
Seriously, I think you have a career as a Chess Artist. We could call this one The Grim Fate of Rodney King.
totaly not legal. First or all, how would pawns get on the 8th and 1st rank?!?!?!
My art is not one of your sordid little puzzles served up for the typical mechanical analysis of conformity to the rules of the game.
Dude seriously. Either get some skills in the retro department or stop trying. You are putting pieces randomly on the board and pretending it's a puzzle.
Considering how utterly random some modern retros look, the uninitiated could almost (but not quite) be forgiven for thinking it's random. For an example of no aesthetic sense, just randomness (tempered by some retro knowledge):
that one doesn't look hard
-1. bPa7xb8=R+ wPa5-a6-2. bPd4xNc3 wNe4-c3 (or from d5, although the latter means bPd4 needs to retract another capture)
The rest looks trivial.
