Chains: A Junior Narrative Illustration by Stephen Adams (2013)
This illustration represents a situation where a man who has given up on love, and is faced with it again. The one he cares about is taken hostage and her life is put in danger, and the danger drags them both down. In the end, he must accept love and save her. I used Adobe Illustrator to make the illustration. I manipulated the opacity of many of the layers to make the background look abstract, and I used a gradient to make the ball look three dimensional.
