it almost looks like an alternate take on Sodom and Gamora

I might totally miss the point of the design, but...
Glass + heat = heated glass.
Melting glass = intense heat.
Intense heat in really short time = no living creatures around (such as humans or animals).
Explosion = first shock wave, then heat. Explosions first displace air masses, then the created space is replaced with expanding gases, hot explosion results.

So, technically, there's this paradox: either the glass building would first shatter and get falling to the side in pieces and only then get melted by the heat, or the humans and other items flying away due to the blast should be incinerated in mere instants. By the looks of it, those people are closer to the blast point than the buildings (assuming that is a round construction, separating the living quarters of those people from the glass buildings).

Or, that's not Newtonian Physics in that Universe and I have been writing for a few minutes with no real point here. :-)

Nonetheless, I like the image :-)

Well, in exalted, all within I believe a football field or 30 would take infinite damage upon experiencing the Five Metal Shrieks main weapon. I conclude this is milliseconds after the firing of said weapon, and your very astute critique will soon come to pass there after! :p

I thought it was supposed to be the city of Gem that's always getting nuked in the South. It's like the Tokyo of Creation. ;)
Lovely piece, though! Way to bring Exalted to life!

Wow. I just read through the comments and it seems like no-one here has any idea what this is supposed to be. That's so sad. There is a ton of great stuff in the Exalted game and Udon Crew's art is prolific in it. You people need to use google before you comment.

Apparently God subcontracts genocidal atrocities out to Alien spacecraft.

"Hey, I got this city I want taken care of...uh huh...yeah...usual going rate. Ok thanks."

OH, and that is a BEAUTIFUL picture.

i can't remember the name of the story but it's about a city in which the population was so full of sin that God felt they should be destroyed.
some think that this really happened but instead of god being behind it, it was aliens haha

i myself study A.A theory ALOT.
though most of my family is of Christian Belief (and i have read the bible twice aswell) i mostly delve into Science and the like.
it's nice to see someone with the values of the Christian religion, minus the narrowmindedness if you know what i mean
