Dark and Rushing by Doodleholic Dark and Rushing by Doodleholic
"Islington was looking down on everything from far above, hovering in the air, as one hovers in dreams, as it had hovered in those long- ago times. There were buildings in that city that were many hundreds of feet high, but they were dwarfed by the gray-green Atlantic waves. And then it heard the people scream. There were four million people in Atlantis, and, in its dream, Islington heard each and every one of their voices, clearly and distinctly, as, one by one, they screamed, and choked, and burned, and drowned, and died.” -Neverwhere, Neil Gaiman

Benedict Cumberbatch as the Angel Islington, again. I basically wanted to draw what I imagined in my head pertaining to the text above (And I've been wanting to draw that ref image for what feels like a gajillion years). It's also nice to compare it to the piece I did last year; I can definitely see some improvement. And some day I'll stop being lazy with wings. But that day is not this day.

Wait, did he let Atlantis die on purpose or what it an accident?
