'Modern life is rubbish', thought the Sorceress, besieged by everybody and every 'nobody' of the Royal Court. They pleaded with her to save them - but simultaneously chastised her for letting the world slip into decay. After all, they reasoned that they had abolished religion and its practitioners in her favour.... surely she could do better than this to keep the forces of evil at bay? But to her mind, they had brought all these evils upon themselves - through greed and poor planning. There was even talk that the banks were beginning to stumble... a panic far more fearful to some than merely flood, plague or pestilence... now things would really have to change. Yes, this was one weird halloween! Bemused... she had tried every trick in the book. Now she would have to try the one that isn't in any of the books... you can only try this one once - but the real trick is you can try it ALL the time and forever... Now if only they would all shut up a minute and let her concentrate on the spell... "If you can keep your head when all about you Are losing theirs and blaming it on you, If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, But make allowance for their doubting too; If you can wait and not be tired by waiting, Or being lied about, don't deal in lies, Or being hated, don't give way to hating, And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise: If you can dream - and not make dreams your master; If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim; If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster And treat those two impostors just the same; If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools, Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken, And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools: If you can make one heap of all your winnings And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss, And lose, and start again at your beginnings And never breathe a word about your loss; If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew To serve your turn long after they are gone, And so hold on when there is nothing in you Except the Will which says to them: Hold on!" Produced in Daz|Studio and Photoshop. All props from Renderosity and Daz. The poem is edited from 'IF' by Rudyard Kipling. I'd like to dedicate this to everyone here at Renderosity at these dark times. In particular though, I would like to dedicate it to 'novelist'. An artist and friend here who has helped me so much in the past few months and without her support I would have never held on... thank you Cathy. dmrc_enabled_wbtn.gif

Such detail, amazing work.

A masterpiece! Gorgeous work and story. Splendid topic for today and our times. Time to rethink what we really want. Time to be truly careful what you ask for, since you may get it with unexpected results. Bunny

great looking scene - lots of work to look at... I think I would of named this: "The Book Worms"



5:38PM | Mon, 20 October 2008

The level of detail is staggering, blows one away,Peter!Design,execution,first-class. An instant fave, as Niha says.

great work



5:41PM | Mon, 20 October 2008

Such masterful work! With extraordinary attention to detail in the true sense! Truly incredible work!!!! Fave!!!!



5:56PM | Mon, 20 October 2008

Absolutely a masterpiece. all the way through. Peter. Smells like a 2008 world reflection to me. Very cool Kipling poem.. The most interesting about that is.. That it describes the world as it is today. A fine dedication to everyone here, but especially to Chathy, of which i appreciate a lot, too. A fine and very talented artist in many ways. The graphics on this picture is high level perfectionism all over. I especially enjoy the rats..they depict the 2008 pest and plague perfectly. The amazing details are too numerous to describe. This is one of your absolute best posts here, imo.+5



5:57PM | Mon, 20 October 2008

super cool and the words is right on. we think alike which may be good or spooky lol. hahhaah love it.



5:58PM | Mon, 20 October 2008

This is such a amazing work in every way Peter, you always have such a incredible quality to your work that seems to come from within.



5:58PM | Mon, 20 October 2008

So many parallels I could view this all night! The rich browns and textures create the mood of old masterpieces. This is beyond exceptional. Bravo!



6:01PM | Mon, 20 October 2008

Simply breathtaking, amazing composition and concept!



6:07PM | Mon, 20 October 2008

Great scene and wonderful story; sounds a bit familiar, maybe too familiar...hmmmm nah! couldn't be us... except we don't have a sorceress to bail us out... Well done and very appropirate to our times



6:11PM | Mon, 20 October 2008

Oh golly. Your analogy is spot on. The use of incense and/or smoke while rats run freely over the table and books is spooky correct for that time. Thank you for posting this image.



6:13PM | Mon, 20 October 2008

Wow Pete this Rocks and with DAZ, the detail proves this App can handle it eh Bravo



6:16PM | Mon, 20 October 2008

Extraordinary image! One could spent hours enjoying it and studying every single detail. It´s amazing!



6:38PM | Mon, 20 October 2008

Hi Pete, it's been awhile, seeing this, now know why. A superior composition of symbolically depicting 3 of the 4 Horsemen.Even edited, the poem is an accomplished companion to a scene that speaks volumes & a moving dedication to a friend. Kudos....I feel truly humbled!
