Better quality now!

"Be one of us" shows a dragon ritual based on a dream I had.
A red dragon came to me and asked me to come with him.
I came with him to a dragon land that I visit in my dreams often.
When I arrived, in the room was a big magical circle in that I should join.
I felt a lot of energy and I changed my body into my dragon form.
Then the golden dragon told me that the dragons will appreciate me as one of them, as a dragon.

It took me a lot of time to draw the picture... I hope you like it!

"Be one of us" übesetzt: "Sei einer von uns" zeigt ein Drachenritual das auf einen Traum basiert den ich hatte.
Ein roter Drache kam zu mir und bat mich darum ihm zu folgen.
Ich folgte ihm zu einem Drachenland, dass ich öfter in meinen Träumen besuche.
Als ich ankam, war in der Mitte des Raumes ein magischer Kreis gezogen in den ich eintreten sollte.
Ich fühlte eine gewaltige Kraft die meinen Körper durchströmte und verwandelte mich in meine Drachengestalt.
Dann sagte der goldene Drache zu mir, dass die Drachen mich nun als ihres Gleichen betrachten, als Drachen.

Es hat mich viel Zeit gekostet das Bild zu zeichnen... ich hoffe es gefällt euch!

Dragons of fire, water, metal, wood, earth, air, and spirit, An oldie but goody as shown in this picture (though which dragon is which i leave up to you). Anyway, i like the girl in the center. A simple robe, the energies emitting from the dragons themselves, and a magic circle emitting a fiery glow such a feature of magic i don't think I've seen these features for quite some time. I see texture in the scales and floor too. Texture can also be seen in the wings, especially the feathery wings. Overall this picture is a frabtabjulous piece of work!
What do you think?

I am still amazed with all of your artwork, but some really special ones, like this one, really take the breath from me!
I always love to see many dragons on one picture, expecially so I can see them all clearly, like in this picture.But look it all! Details, shading, dragons! Breathtaking...
The visions that I see... the idea that it gives... hard to describe, but beautiful.
Very original! I see such a ritual with so many dragons the first time!
Technique... flawless. :)
Impact... indescribable.
What else to say? It takes out words from me, but I still managed to describe it as well as I could. Excellent!

AMAZING! Lovely Shoujo Emoji (Sho lovely) [V2] When changed into a dragon what color where you? What element where you? Did you breath fire? Sorry for all the questions I'm just a REALLY big dragon fan! Ai Fuyuumi (Blush) [V1]

Thank you! :-)
You can see myself together with my dragonform in the front of the picture.
I'm the dragon of hope (belong to the element light) and yes, I can breath fire in my form :-)

This is amazing!
The dragon of water is my totem!! :D :D

I wish i had more dreams of dragons, i think they are there in the background, i glimpse them sometimes and sometimes i myself am part one.
Though at times i have some robot/transformer friend as well XD
this is amazing
i have had several dreams of flying, and in all of them i was either learning or struggling with staying aloft ^^;
(Fly damnit! :shakedragon:)
My VERY FIRST flying dream was when the dragon transformer, megatron, from the tv series; beast machines held my hand and was teaching me to fly Day Dreaming about Love

Thank you! :la:
How cool is that :-)
A moon/crystaldragon is my Totem, but I always had also a special connection to the element of water and to a waterdragon :-)

I think you will have more dreams about them, I'm sure!^^

Hey, that sounds familiar to me! :D
I remember in my childhood I had learn to fly too! It was very difficult to rise higher O.o
But with time, with every dream more it was more easy. Today I need just a simple flap to rise high :-)
It's a great feeling :heart:
ArtemisDragonheart Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2014  Student General Artist
Oh wow thats amazing
Perhaps some day i will soar in my dreams and experience that freedom
It is one of my deepest wishes, to fly in real life and not need to be afraid of hights

I just recently realized i have dreamt of being a dragon after this!
XD silly me, i even drew it, just forgot it was a dream
I had been out with my friends, one a raven and one a sphinx/lion
and i had gone off to be by myself passing over a very small stream then got to a clearing by a huge flat lake.
Later starscream(a transformer who had been following my friends) asked my frends if they had seen me and they told him where i went. He followed my tracks then went to sit down on a rock by the lake just enjoying the shear peaceful atmosphere when i decided to dragon sneek up to him, stepping in a pond on the way XD
