Guild Wars 2 player recreates Mona Lisa in guild hall

    
8

Never underestimate the ingenuity and creative spirit of players when they are given even the most bare-bones tools in an MMORPG.

To wit, a player who goes by Alilinke.7690 painstakingly created the famous Mona Lisa painting in a Guild Wars 2 guild hall using blocks and shadows. While the painting might not be as detailed as the real thing, it is nevertheless impressive that this could be done at all in the game itself.

According to the description by YouTube eyepoo, this probably took a very long time to create: “To construct this ‘drawing,’ objects were placed with remarkable precision mid-air (which requires that object to be placed on top of something else which is then removed). The difficulty of exact decoration placement in guild halls is considerable, making this shadow sculpture all the more mind-boggling. The cast shadow then ‘draws’ the Mona Lisa on the wall made of blocks.”

Imagine what could be done if Guild Wars 2 had proper housing, eh? See it for yourself below!

Once I realized the “drawing” was a bunch of shadows…
