Every dragon has their place in nature. some grow some burn. each is a vital part of the ecosystem

Hey,

I'm very pleased to see you want to Dragon to be shown like these here.
I really dislike the typcial stereotype :(
Always wonderful to see someone thinking alike.

It is sadly rare as humanity has often made their minds up on to what a dragon is.

often? noes I would say. I think most of their thoughs are like "how can we portrait us in the best light?" and then they do not really think about Dragons, but about what they like to see as "Dragon".
So in the end you have the "man made Dragon" or short "Mragon" as I call it, but not really a Dragon. (just my thoughs about that)

Well they say the devil is a dragon with seven heads (and if i recall) many horns. And i just love that term mragon.. very neat term i will say.

oh well... the 7 heads remind me on a hydra...
Well however, they seem to have a problem with horns and really think they belong to devil.
In medival they had scapegoats , the human did bad things and "transfered" these bad things onto the scapegoat because it has horns <.< and then they killed it and (prented) to be free from their sins.
But sadly humanity is good at avoding things that could be unpleasent, so it is easier to create a Mragon (or another "Monster") and transfer all bad behaviors on that "beast" and mark it as evil and so on.
By this you have not to face your one inner demons* (like greed, intolerance, sadism, racism, hate, envy, descrutive fury and so on...)

I'm always happy when I see "real" Dragons. Sadly it is very rare...

*demons are not always evil, this is another thing, but "inner demons" is still good words. Everyone knows what is meant.
I mean there is no race that is pure evil, let alone that "evil" is something relative. (sorry for all the talk xD )

No no its fine. ive crossed paths with a varitey of creatures and some more nefarious and dark than others and have crossed paths with creatures though "alien" (as in not well known etc) in appearance were rather friendly. I curse any creature that seeks to cause harm and destruction and relishes in it with no other true goals.

I understand.
I would such a creature never allow to cause harm and destruction, not as long as I life.

But when such a drawing helps to make people understand that Dragons aren't the Monsters they are portrayed as, but that the "monster" is in the peoples hearts and something they can get rid off, then it that is great.

I mean the drawing helped already as it was part of Naturrama, but when it does even more good, that be even more great of course.

May the flame of life be with you.

Der Titel passt wirklich gut zu dem Bild und es freut mich natürlich das dir das Thema so sehr gefallen hat. Das ich es toll finde das du die ganzen kleinen und großen Details in den Drachen verwirklich hast, weißt du ja bereits :) Generell das das Bild sehr schön geworden ist.

Leider wird heute ja soviel Natur zerstört und einbetoniert oder geht durch menschenverursachte oder mitverschuldete Waldbrände/Buschbrände etc. drauf. Dieses Bild könnte an so vielen Standorten spielen und dort ein Symbol der Hoffnung für Natur und Leben darstellen.
Außerdem zeigt es nebenher natürlich auch das Drachen eben nicht die zerstörer sind als welche sie leider zu oft dargestellt werden. Sondern als Wesen die intelligent sind und eine tiefe Verbindung zur Natur haben.

In diesem Sinne lassen wir die Flamme der Hoffnung für die Erde mit diesem wundervollen Werk ein wenig heller lodern, auf das unsere Hoffnung wahr werde.

Vielen Dank und du hast vollkommen recht.
Es ist unfair das Drachen immer nur als Zerstörer angesehen werden.
Rykaran's avatar

Kein Problem.
Das stimmt, ich hoffe sehr das die Leute irgendwann einmal verstehen das Drachen mehr sind als nur Zerstörer. Das sie etwas von ihrer Schwarz/Weiß denkweise abkommen und erkennen das es keine pur Bösen Rassen gibt. Und das die definition von "böse" dann oft auch noch sehr relativ ist.

Naja... außerdem wenn teils so sehe was die Menschen teilweise an Zerstörung anrichten nur um noch reicher/mächtiger zu werden, sind dagegen sogar die Klischee Mensch-gemachten Zerstörer, Prinzessinen Rauber und Goldhorter beinahe harmlos und wirken wie ein frecher kleiner Junge der Lausbuben Streiche spielt.

genau! sollen die Drachis mal schön Bäume pflanzen, die von ihren Verwandten mit dem Feueratem zu Asche verbrannt wurden oO ;)
