jaredr - 2012

I've decided to join this forum and enter this challenge, despite the many other projects I have going. I did a quick initial sketch below. The concept is Earth is basically just completely breaking apart. You can see a large chunk of the surface floating away in the background. Right now I have the composition set in a central park type setting. This may change

Another idea. I think i like this better. Cracks are opening up and you can see magma pushing through. I may add solar fares coming from the left.

I've rendered out Earth with Blender. I did a pass of the sphere lit normally, a pass of the specular highlight, and another pass of a white sphere with diffuse shading to create the atmosphere effect.

Added some quick solar flare. Currently working on lava. I've begun painting in the clouds, by hand.

Update: Refining details of lava areas. I'm going to break up the big chunk on the left a little bit. Ignore the blotch of color on the top right.

really? I might finish that one as well. I'm liking how my new is coming along, so I will still finish it, then probably go back to the first one.

Debris look like splash of water, i would go with huge smoke(or rock/smoke/cloud/light) form, like the one atom bomb is making

I would add that earth crust doesn't dislocate that much, unless hit by a huge asteroid (or death star hehe); what you did is equivalent to crust going some 100 km up...(blue atmosphere ring is the measure of 20km, twice of the height of airplane flight). Keep the lava cracks, but also keep the 'roundness' of the planet.

The solar flare idea was actually more of an afterthought. I may change those, but I still think they look cool. I guess the idea is that the flares are basically cooking the planet from the inside and its slowly expanding.
Don't give me any ideas with the Star Wars reference Suirebit But you might be right about the amount of displacement. I just wanted to maximize the epicness. Maybe I'll scale it down a bit.
