Illustration Friday - "Contained"

  For this weeks Illustration Friday's topic of "Contained" I went with the first image that came to mind.  This image is based off of Revelation 20:1-3.  "And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss and holding in his hand a great chain.  He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years."  I'm still going with the Bible/retro thing.  It took about 4 hours and was done in Illustator/Photoshop.

A very good way to keep that bad boy contained! I can honestly say, I've never seen the bible portrayed this way Scott and I'm really liking it!
Brilliant!

Heh! I got a chuckle out of this! It'll be nice once he's thrown into the lake of fire once and for all. Praise God for telling us the end of the story! :) You're doing lots of great work in this style!
