What if a planet devoured itself? What if a planet's core got so hot that the weakest parts of the planet just melted towards the core of the planet?

What if a planet ate itself?

Lovely artwork! A few thoughts:

you'd expect a significant number of quakes and volcanic eruptions if a planet split up like this - this looks almost like an uber-nuke was fired into the side of the planet or something. it looks very cool, but strikes me as scientifically unlikely - the sort of thing you'd see if someone used a magic staff to break a planet apart

that said, I'd be interested to see it "more torn apart" - with more space between the segments, and perhaps some asteroids forming from cooling lava exposed to vacuum drifting off

if that's what you're going for though, awesome work - and the faded starscape also adds that "magical" feeling to it
