Dragon Stamp by gaeamil Dragon Stamp by gaeamil
Have you ever noticed that in every movie that has dragons, by the end, there are none left? They just kill off each dragon that is in the movie, good or bad, and often they'll be the last dragon on Earth! For a dragon fan such as me, this is a travesty. What is so wrong, Hollywood, with keeping good dragons alive? Like Dragonheart. What a shame they had to kill a good dragon. With Sean Connery's voice!

I can so relate to this!

One more thing that Hollywood never seems to get is that what they call dragons are never dragons but Wyverns (with exception of course of Dragon heart) but each time I see a dragon it is always a Wyvern even harry potter! lol!

Let's see what Hollywood thinks when we send an army of dragons at them!

How to train your dragon. That is all.

I can name off some other films (and TV specials) where a dragon survives till the end: "Shrek", "Pete's Dragon", "D-War (aka Dragon Wars)", "Dragonworld", "Quest for Camelot", "The Reluctant Dragon", "Puff the Magic Dragon", "Dragons: A Fantasy Made Real", and "Mulan".

Also, most dragons in movies are based on European legends & folklores, which depicted them as symbols of evil. In Asian mythology however, it's the opposite.

This stamp is too true,dragons aren't evil like in movies.They're awesome and intelligent creatures,not mindless killing machines.Hollywood,please just do one movie in where the dragon isn't killed or I'll eat every last one of you Hollywood executives!

Have you ever been perusing DA and found a picture or stamp that you feel was made just for you?

I've spent my entire career as an artist, musician, and writer glorifying dragons and trying (desperately, I might add) to educate people that they can be used for SO MUCH MORE than a cookie-cutter fantasy villain. u_u I abhor the evil dragon stereotype with a burning, fiery passion, so yes, I know EXACTLY how you feel here, friend. While it's true there have been works here and there that go against the grain in some way, the vast, VAST majority of garbage churned out of Hollywood, the video game industry, and even mainstream publishing houses does not. It's a token effort when there's so much media demonizing dragons.

I could go on and on, but I shall refrain. Wonderful stamp! Seeing this gives me hopes that when I publish my books, they'll find their way into the hands of people such as you. :)

Hmm, look who happened to stumble upon this comment. If I could fav, I would a million times over. Also, I can relate to you here. I love dragons so much I cry when one dies, wether they be good or bad. Heck, I refuse to kill the ender dragon in minecraft. And I soloemly swear I would not play games such as skyyrim where you must kill dragons. I hate how people demonize them. Of course, I believe people are just like those hollywood dragons as a species if you think about it. Mankind is led by greed and violence, similiar to hollywood dragons.
As another thing I can relate with you is I am also currently writing some stories myself about dragons. The one I'm currently working on is the introduction for I book I call the war for Drissea. This story is going to be a prequel to another 4 book series called the dragons of drissea. If your interested, I could tell you more about it. That is if your interested in a war between good aand evil and dragons from another world to briefly summarize the main idea. There is a lot of terms involved as well as history , characters and a prophecy and legendary stone called the matrix which is the main reason for the war.
It would be quite a lot to talk about and much you need to understand about the terms before you understand the story. Which us why I asked if your interested or not

How to Train a Dragon and Eargon didn't kill off the main dragons, so I guess Hollywood is getting better at this.

:D Great stamp, too true.
PostWaveCore Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2011
Yeah its not like Hollywood ever produced pro-Dragon movies like Dragonheart or How to Train Your Dragon

DemonfoxKyubi Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2011
I agree with this. eragon has the main dragon live.
TopStooge Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
i know i hate that

This is so true! I am dieing for a movie that dragons are the good guys, or they don't all die by the end.
Vistalgian-Dragon Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2010  Student Traditional Artist
Thank you for making this! Why the mass murder of dragons?!
Dragoonfliy Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
Ah the blunt truth of that statement stabs my soul with nasty little needles of... truthiness.

I'm still hoping for the day when a GOOD dragon movie not involved with mass dragon killing comes out. But IT WILL. Yep. Definitely.
BethanyAngelstar Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2009  Student Filmographer
I wish they'd keep a dragon around T__T ESPECIALLY one with Sean Connery's voice!!! I LOVE that movie, but it's so SAD!!!
PenDragon13 Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2008

bt if you kill off the human EVERY ONE cries.

i blame dragon slayers and their swords.
dragoncaretaker92 Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
i no right
i mean come on what the fuck? if we can kill dragons why cant they kill us?
QueenDragonLeaf Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2008
Techincally...if you chose to watch the horrid sequel to Dragonheart, Draco wasn't actually the last.

There is apparently two more--one evil and good one that was hidden in Draco's cave as an egg.
gaeamil Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2008   Photographer
Draco proclaimed himself as the last dragon. Maybe he knows that the two eggs are going to be both male. Whatever. Still, the dragon race doesn't survive. That's my point.

So true!
gaeamil Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2008   Photographer
I'd wholly be amazed if someone could name for me a movie where they DIDN'T kill every last dragon.
DargonXKS Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2007
I've noticed the same things! Part of which has prompted me to write my own dragon story... blah blah. It is kinda stalled at the moment.. anyway, yeah. Although, Temeraire is being made into a movie, and he won't die by the end of it. :D
gaeamil Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2007   Photographer
I would write a story to remedy it myself, but whenever I write without the most powerful of inspirations, it come out... bleh.

Temeraire? What is that?
DargonXKS Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2007
[link] There is Temeraire! XD
