So anyway this is my entry into the inspirations contest...obviously.
For inspiration, I used the work of Ryan Church ([link]
Why? For no better reason than that I like his work. It tends to be quite dramatic and that`s the quality I wanted to capture. I also wanted to create a sense of scale, of epic conflict, in the airspace above this city.
In the end I`m pretty happy with how this turned out. Took about 8~10 hours, Painter 6.1
