What Is This Style Called?

that really is what I am talking about. It is a fantasy picture, and like other retro paintings like it, it has that style. The reason I am asking is because I am an "artist" of a different type, a graphics programmer. I am writing a GLSL shader and want to try to emulate that style, but I need to know what that style is and some characteristics before I can get started. Thanks.
P.S: I realize the origin of the picture is unrelated to the topic, as it is a random 80's album cover I have never really heard, but I found the picture when searching Google for "sky murals", and then it sparked my imagination.

I have a general interest in 1. games involving pet breeding or farming, and 2. interactive story romance. If you'd like to discuss one of these you may PM me.

If that's the case, that style could be considered neo-romanticism or neo-surrealism, depending on what kind of subject matter you're looking for.
Me thinks you might have better luck looking in neo-surrealism as it leans more toward fantastic elements like those found on cover art and stuff.
Hope this helps!
