This is a pretty interesting picture with the ruined buildings and glowing ghost figures that give a mystical but chilling atmosphere.

Hmmm, an interesting concept for a fantasy environment. :greetings:

Ruins are a common theme in artworks like this, however, there is certainly many unique aspects that make this piece stand out. Not only do the autumn coloured trees give it an enchanting atmosphere but also the design of the lantern posts gives it a sense of freshness. :nod:

Not sure what the blue crystal warriors are meant to be since I'm not really familiar with Guild Wars 2, but I still find this deviation a truly magnificent work of art. :D

Splendid work, fellow deviant, and congratulations on the Daily Deviation! :clap: :+fav:

Those blue warriors are ghosts cursed to haunt the land and fight any living creature they encounter. The last human king of this kingdom unleashed them to drive back his mortal enemies.

Uh-huh... :nod: ghosts. f2u tiny ghost

What a defense mechanism for an ancient ruin. :greetings:

Thanks for the information, buddy! (If it indeed is in the lore of Guild Wars 2) :thumbsup::D

It is the lore of the game. I'm a long time GW2 player. Interestingly, there's no way to permanently defeat those ghosts; part of the curse is that they always come back, even if you defeat them.

It is the lore. I play the game. And these ghosts cannot be dispersed, you defeat one, it comes right back. It's part of the curse.

I couldn't have said it better myself.

Abou the crystal warriors: They could be a final remnant of the opulence of the land's past rulers. (don't know anything about GW2 either)

Congrats on the DD.

They're actually ghosts of the kingdom's last human soldiers, cursed to defend it for eternity against any living creatures.
