Uprising by ElementsWorkshop Uprising by ElementsWorkshop
Rolling clouds engulf the city and what rises out of the storm are the swarming wings of doom that are large enough to blot out the sun.
A swarm of dragons over taking a city whether that city be medieval or modern has always be a visual that I've been drawn to. Perhaps it's the idea that these majestic dragons are finally taking back the land that belongs to them that I love, or maybe it's just that dragons have the freedom to go anywhere and do anything they want. Really, who would tell them no! In this image I've visualized those ideas in a way that I hope conveys a sense of majesty and savagery that only dragons possess.

I think you capture the concept quite well and I really love this. Good composition. I love the color scheme as well. For me it reads warm, but that warmth steams from the dragons energies. The buildings are rendered beautifully and I love how the background engulfs them. Also you have definitely captured the majesty and savagery you are looking for in your main dragon, he/she is gorgeous and terrifying all at once. My only qualms about this piece is that your other minor dragons are roughly all about the same size and going the same angle. Some of the dragons also looked like they were copies or near replicas of other dragons with changes to their tail, which is fine to do and I don't think it subtracts from the piece as a whole, but I feel that if the dragons were in different sizes or going at a different angle it would not be as noticable that they are extremely similar in shape and you would have a stronger piece.

Also the logo at the bottom is really distracting and takes away from the piece. I feel that if you just turned the opacity down and made it more like a watermark, it would be less distracting.

-Again love the piece a great deal.

One of the many sides of dragons. As I love all their faces, I love your work. And as Winterkeep, it makes me think of the movie "Reign of Fire" as a "what if" in the Stan Lee way like a "what if the dragons were the winners and Christian Bale failed ?"
Really good job :)
