Towards the end, the Fold Weapon initiated and it tells the planet to shatter!
First time attempted to do FX, rig, and do simple animation combine with matte painting. Boy it was the most challenging dynamic matte painting I have ever done! It doesnt help that our game engine is a bitch to use too :/ After a month of banging head on my table, trial and error, iterations after iterations, love and hate: it came out looking all right, I think.
