Chained by bluessence Chained by bluessence
I've had the pencil version of this sitting around for about a year now and finally decided to finish it..

I was trying a lineless painted style, but I think it's a bit rushed since I wanted to have it done in time to make prints of it... but I'm still mostly happy with the outcome.

Enjoy my ever so creative title... It's meant to be vague so you can read into the picture however you like ^__^

They had chained him. Then beaten him up. Then cut him. And when he fell unconscious... he didn't want to think what else they had done to him. But they made a mistake: when he woke up again he was alone, and he felt that he could - with a bit of time - slide his hands out of the cuffs. The chains were a bigger problem, but he found a knive and - while breaking the edge not only one time - he could finally break out. His body was in no good state, though, and he first doubt that his wings would carry him... but when he felt the wind playing with his hair and feathers he could gather new energy and they did.
And now... first, he had to get away. Second, he had to heal and grow strong again. And then... SOMEONE would DIE.
But something sneaked into his mind... ...what if they wanted him to break out?

Couldn't help, sorry :blush: Also, English is not my native language so sorry if it is somehow strange^^
I really like this picture! The light, the colors, and how beautiful and androgynous your angel looks :)

i love how you made his wings white instead of black so the we are left to question why he was chained in the first place.

Shoot, now I'm thinking of writing about why......
CURSE YOU, RANDOM INSPIRATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This makes me think of the second book to a series that i am writing. Except that Jake has black wings. He was chained by his brother because of his jealousy of Jake's girlfriend
