Disintigrate by tadp0l3 Disintigrate by tadp0l3
A common sight in this asteroid abundant part of the galaxy. A large rock has just hit this planet, instantly igniting the atmosphere at impact, and illuminating the previously dark night side in storms of fire. In moments this planet will be nothing but dead and barren. Perhaps new life will walk the earth of this planet once again - but it'll take millions of years for the right conditions for large sized life to reappear.

:bulletred: Wallpaper

The watermark/title of the piece is removed in the wallpaper pack. 16:9 and 19:10 wallpaper resolutions available as download.

:bulletred: About

Time: Worked on this on and off for a couple of weeks. How many hours are hard to estimate, but quite a few.
Tools: Photoshop and Vue 7
Original resolution: 6000x3500 (vue renders only 2000x1200)
Stock: Some of the small asteroids comes from *ChrisCold, after rendering the big ones I got a bit tired and lazy.

Please comment and/or fav if you use and/or like it.

Update: A bit blurry from downsizing, some sharpening done.

Wow, a DD - couldn't really believe it when I logged on. Thanks a lot *Sniper115A3 for suggesting and ^Voyager212 for his second DD feature, you rock man!

Thanks also everyone for watching, faving and commenting. You make this worthwhile :)

Now this is flipping epic. I don't write stories but this makes me want to write a good sci-fi tale or something!

Its beautiful yet chaotic. The story this picture portrays ignites so much thought. What was living on the planet before? Did they see the warning signs, and make it out in time, or were they to late. where will they go if they did make it out, and in millions of years will they return to there cradle world or forsake it, and what will the new life be like millions of years post cataclysm :) thanks for being a totally epic artist! :D

Immediately caught my eye in the Daily Deviation thumbnail. :magnify: That's why this work to me is great! Space is always a facinating subject. There's too much we don't know out there and that is why we strive to reach the stars to find answers.

You win a :+fav: and a :thumbsup: from me good sir! :clap:

Indeed, space is fascinating. And so is the human imagination. Despite never having seen but a fraction of what lies out there - there's tons of artists creating marvelous pieces of believable and stunning art. Glad I could contribute with my meager pieces to the multitude of talent here on dA :)
