The Takers

They grab
without grasping
reaching
wave after waves
grips slipping
fingertrips
into darkness
clutching
at nothing
captured
in the catch
caught
by the loss
rapaciously
unstable
unable
to retain
or refrain
or regain
what it was
they wanted…

THE TAKERS

Blender 2.42 optimized + render nodes + mild post gamma/dof tweaks.
Poem also by me, which inspired this image.

Thank you for viewing my work,

Interesting piece RobertT. Something different from you, which is a nice change of pace.

The only thing that looks a bit odd to me is the fact that all the hands are very static. Some rigging of those and then some actual sense of movement of the fingers would help IMO.

I like the shader work and the node work looks nice too.

Very interesting poem, the render fits it perfectly. Nice job.

nice work, It reminds me a little bit of “the rain maker”

i like the contrast of sharp and blurry. gives it depth.

whoa thats really freaky =P

But theres something about those white edges that remind me of photoshop. Maybe you put to much of that edge filter or whatever its called?

I think I like the poem more than the actual peice… :smiley:
