Free From Repto Tyranny

Hear us you hideous beasts
Never will fade away
the cry of men, never again scaly tyranny!
Your nasty saurian head
we'll split in two - forever we shall all be free!

Original Title: "Vorbei mit schuppig' Tyrannei"

Finally done... this project waited about 9 months to be finished, I worked on and off with long breaks in between.
My goal was to archive the look and feel of a classical battle scene as seen on old paintings, and I'm quite satisfied with the outcome.
I had to paint and repaint tons of details - as much as on no other artwork before, but I think I learned a lot among this journey.
