Those Who Play for Ghosts by TheMichaelMacRae Those Who Play for Ghosts by TheMichaelMacRae
There are pieces written for the ones forgotten. They linger unmoving while their shriveled hearts long for the dulcet tunes of a living, breathing soul.

Those Who Play for Ghosts by ricochet188 tells a hauntingly beautiful story. The details, composition, and muted tones make this a truly impressive work of art. ( Suggested by Kida-neechan and Featured by diphylla )

If there's a story behind this, I'd love to read it. I'm just so curious as to how he got there... and the quality is superb, of course... :heart:

Here the souls now rest, not peace,

In frozen harsh of frost bitten cease.

Dance from silent, they hope for breath,

Of living soul who play honeyed death.

The bound to urge these deaden souls,

Where lifeless hearts now grace their roles.

In warmth to measure, they felt at last,

Of pleasant tune of melody cast.

This is wonderful. It is one of the best art pieces I have ever seen. Not only are the painting skills top notch, the story it tells and the emotions it portrays makes it an overall masterpiece.

Wow, this piece made the front page again, but that's okay, because I forgot all about it and was pleasantly surprised to see it again.

I really love the muted colours in this piece, and just the strange mix of calm from the dead and tension from the living. I could probably prattle on about this piece for a while, but honestly, it's fantastic.
