This was a commission I was asked to do for a new Online MMO called Midado-Online, The site is [link]

The requested concept was the earth in a state of emergency, the surface on one side is always facing the sun as its rotation has stopped and it gets very got. The atmosphere is escaping at the poles causing aurora and other nasty things to happen, also the moon exploded.

not to sund like a dick....but f the earth stopped spinning everything on its surface including a few hundred feet of dirt would be ripped free and thrown into space.....its an epic picture though

Not really, it's not the spin of the planet that keeps us rooted to the ground its the size and mass of the planet, the moon doesn't spin at all one side always faces the Earth yet there is gravity keeping all the very loose dust and rocks rooted. The magnetic field around Earth would keep going as well as that's not caused by the earth spinning but by molten rock spinning rapidly around the solid iron core, physics 1-0-1 hot liquid moving rapidly around a solid iron core = magnetic field. If the Earth did stop spinning it would have a huge effect on the weather, with one side always in sunlight and one in dark coldness there would be some epic storms especially across the border between night and day, maybe even permanent storms.

I think what he's trying to say is, due to the fact that the Earth actually spins quite fast, a halt like that would be noticeable on the surface... like, if someone is flung several feet to the left. It might not actually throw things out into space, though.
...But what do I know? I'm not an astronomer.

All done in Photoshop, and using a Wacom graphics tablet :ahoy:

nice! i have a wacom tablet, but I don't have any drawing experience. I think i need to take some courses in drawing first before i can tackle photoshop or painter. I'll use your work for inspiration. Thanks.
