London's burning by mushroom2020 London's burning by mushroom2020
Well, I had major art block for this piece so i decided to whack out the paints and use so many colours it looked like a unicorn had thrown up rainbows onto my paper. I think i may have succeeded. It's a bit scary how rusty I am at traditioal art though, been spending too much time doing things digitally XD

this is my 4th commission for :iconzoffoli: illustrating zoffoli's fan-fiction (regarding the BBC series Sherlock) called 'The Adventure of the Blushing soldier' -----> [link]


here it is on my tumblr if you wanted to reblog: [link] and if you also wanted to follow me then that would be awesome of you! :)

EDIT: I uploaded a version with slightly higher contrast, I think the scanning process lost some of the vibrancy
This illustrates a scene where Sherlock is waiting at Trafalgar square for a murderer, smoking. At no point does london actually catch on fire, as the title might suggest :L I just had that blasted nursery rhyme in my head while painting this XD

I can't help repeating what everyone else has already said: even from the thumbnail, I was completely mesmerized by the colors.
