A Planet's Passing

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

He is an evil bizarre planet that wants to DESTROY earth! People suppose that it might pass or hit Earth

This is great. How did you make the planet?

Well thank you! I made a tutorial a while back and the bottom principle is still the same: How to make a Planet by KennethJensen

Any interest in contributing to NAEV, an open-source Escape Velocity-type game?

I'll look into it, but no promises;)
Oh, I'm just asking if I can reuse your existing work - like from off here. Would that be ok?

I use earth images and use some filters.Also using crack brushes to create cracks on planet and add some shadows.Green part is duplicated layers and playing with colors.I hope this helps :)
