London is burning by JohannesVIII London is burning by JohannesVIII
London's burning.

...Grell just thinks that means a lot of work.


Inspired by a scene at the beginning of episode 23 (I used a screenshot as a reference).

--
Plenty of perspective problems I'm too lazy to correct.
Mainly made in the train during the past few days.
Music: epic trailer music. Just like this one (great amv by the way) [link]

A4, watercolor pencils on red paper. +5% contrast with Photoshop because the scanner ruined it.
Black Butler (c) Yana Toboso

Edit: Ok wow, in like three hours this drawing gained more than a hundred faves. You're all crazy xD
Edit 2: I just woke up to see that's now the most popular drawing in my gallery. Thank you people for the positive reactions :heart:

Edit 3: Aghnnffnfhfgdnng [link] please don't die ;_;

I loved it! I had to take down the originality a notch because this was basically based of a screenshot, but it still was high because I haven't seen this scene in this style. The contrast in colors made it seem so realistic. But you forgot to add Grell's chainsaw, which chops off a few more points in the impact. But not by much, because his chainsaw is only a prop for the actual picture. The ash in the air makes it more realistic as well, but they were talking about a full blown fire, so there should've been more. Not just some here and there. Over all a 91/100 ^^
What do you think?
