Beautiful work. I love the art era in which this was made.

This particular piece reminds me of an image from the old computer game Defender of the Crown, created by James 'Jim' Sachs.

It is a remarkable piece. Since I'm not a gamer, I'm not familiar with the image by Sachs that you mention. Guess I need to check it out.

You can screenshots from the Commodore Amiga game over here:

The graphics were fabulous and ahead of their time back in 1986.

I see what you mean. A couple of the screenshots are very reminiscent of this painting.
