Time it took: About three hours.
To start, I painted one layer (the houses, streets, plants) with Grainy Edge Calligraphy. Then to achieve a more gritty effect with the side walk, square chalk was used lightly. To get the fire effects, I used a layer for Wet Oily, combined orange and yellow, then used grainy blender. To get the fire lighting, I used a new layer (between 15-25% opaqueness) and used (I believe) simple water. The glass windows I drew in with pen. Finally, for the smoke, I used 80-90% opaqueness and thin smooth calligraphy to make a 'black mist,' then drew over it with gritty charcoal to give a 'choking smoke' effect.
For those who choose to read all that, thanks for your time.
The only effect that I wasn't quite happy with was the lighting from the fire. Doesn't look quite
