I've since watched the TV series of the book. Well! What a disappointment. Your image conveys a fantasy grandeur that was completely non-existent in the series. Obvious financial constraints were a factor, however, it was further ruined by a 'modernist' and 'slick' approach to the costuming which gave the effect of 'pantomime' throughout. Needless to say, the script was pretty abysmal too. Even though it's fantasy it has to be real.

Holy, epic-ally enchanting! This Majestic Sword Of Shannara Ancient Ruins is stunning and The Explorer Group looks incredible! The designs, statues, swords, decor, structures, architecture, mountains, ledges, cliffs, staff, armor, helmet, capes, swords, bow and arrow, sunlights, shadows, boulders, entrance, mist, haze, expressions, poses, movement, flow, perspective, realisticness, atmosphere, textures, hues, concept, composition, uniqueness, lighting, colors, style, and other details are also wonderful! Amazingly radical work! :iconfantasticplz:
