This illustration depicts a battle between the forces of darkness and the children of light. The leader of the 'children of light' is Darrius; his weapon of choice is the sword. He has 5 team mates; Stefan who carries a shield, Shenelle who carries a belt, Danelle who wears shoes with rocket boosters, Alvin who has a breastplate and Colin who has a helmet with special technology loaded into it.
Frustrated with life as he knew it, Darrius, the main character cried out to God and God visited him and gave him a dream. In the dream God instructed him to go to a foreign land where he learns about life from a different perspective. He develops friendships with 5 other youngsters. They each have special abilities and armour that help them. Darrius eventually finds a weapon he can master.
Much like the Ephesians who were encouraged by Paul to use their spiritual weapons in Eph 6:10, Darrius first learns how to use the weapons then goes into battle.
I, Maurissa Amstrong came up with the story idea then went from sketch to refined illustration.
This digital illustration is my own concept but not being sold anywhere at the moment.
