A Volgar Barbarian and a combat dragon (same faction) rushing into battle. This is 1 of 3 promotional images I did for a game called Tempest Citadel. It's a sci-fi strategy game with cloud cities, bunkers, scavenging, ancient secrets and squad battles on the ground and above the clouds.
Barbarians uses gene-altering drugs in combination with mantras and tattoos to enhance themselves with great strength, speed and regeneration. Volgar Shamans (not shown) control the dragons.
