I remember this guy from the conceptart contest. The ethereal pomras.

I'm imagining these guys as a source of soft-scifi space travel in an otherwise hard-scifi setting. Use a realistic near-future spacecraft to reach a Guardian's nest in deep space, then bribe the Guardian to send your ship somewhere else. Make sure there's another Guardian within your ship's range of the destination if you want to ever get home.

Also, I've got no idea what we'd have that a Guardian would want in trade.

I love this - it feels like some sort of mysterious, cosmic mysticism. Very Lovecraftian.

While I love the drawing there is one thing I can't determine from it.

How big is this creature?

Whale?
Human?
Hummingbird?
Miles long from wingtip to wingtip?
