Dragon Rider Battle

Private Commission I got thanks to my previous dragon illustration: www.artstation.com/artwork/mEB… 
The client gave specific descriptions on the warriors and events going on but I was free to be creative on the rest.

This time, I did not use any 3D. Instead I manually tried out a fish eye perspective and painstakingly aligned each element to the grid I made.
I learned a ton from this as usual. Next time I'll just learn to generate a city in 3D to see if it takes less time.

Photoshop CS6 | 50hrs | 200+ layers | Photobashing used for some buildings

Reminds me of the game LAIR. You ride a dragon throughout that whole game.

I've played D&D every other Friday night for about 20 years and the current campaign had our characters bound to dragons as riders. So whenever our characters would take off, I'd play on my phone right at the exact point in the song....Music It's your one way ticket to midnight.......Music because it's perfect!

Can never go weong with sammy!

What were you listening to when you painted this?

Fly
On gigantic dragons made out of steel
Strike
With the Hammer of Glory, we will prevail
Kill
Our cosmical enemies with full force
Blasting forth
Without remorse

Rage
With bold supersonic velocity
Trust
In our lasers that storm cross the galaxy
Die
For the universe that we are fighting for
To end the war
Forevermore

For Dunkeld and Cowdenbeath
An epic war is fight

We are heroes
Heroes of Dundee
We are riding forth
To free our galaxy
We are heroes
Heroes of Dundee
We are heroes
Legends we will be

Fear
Our troll mass destruction artillery
Hear
Our battlecry echoing through the sphere
Ride
On the back of the dragons we're standing proud
Wrath unbound
We hold our ground

For Crail and for Aberdeen
An epic war is fight

We are heroes
Heroes of Dundee
We are riding forth
To free our galaxy
We are heroes
Heroes of Dundee
We are heroes
Legends we will be

We passed primordial black holes
Fought goblins and trolls
On faraway stars together
We dashed through infinity
For honour and glory
From Neptune to Mars to Mercury
To bring it all to an end
To make our final stand
In unity we rise, we will ascend
To realms we must protect
Mighty hammer connects
The force to annihilate Zargothrax

spoken:
Yes, mighty warriors
In the name of cosmic justice we ride
Glory will prevail this day
Hail to the king of Dundee

We are heroes
Heroes of Dundee
We are riding forth
To free our galaxy
We are heroes
Heroes of Dundee
We are heroes
Legends we will be

We are heroes
Heroes of Dundee
Now the time has come
That we'll make history
We are heroes
Heroes of Dundee
We are heroes
Legends we will be
