"Without the tides due to the moon's gravity, the sea levels equalized themselves resulting in humongous tsunamis that swept the shorelines. The Planet's axis wobbled, causing the ice caps to melt. The coastal areas flooded, massive climate changes took place. The world is now hit by massive floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, droughts, thunderstorms, and blizzards on a regular scale. Chunks of the moon impacted the Earth leaving huge craters and destruction for miles around.

Mankind struggled for years with these disasters as well as the loss of our crucial economic and political centers on the coastlines. Anarchy and wars broke loose. Eventually we used the nukes, and almost destroyed and irradiated what little we had left.

Only now, decades later, is humankind getting back to where it was before the disaster. Recently peace was re established. We have now restored the Internet, international travel, and telecommunications. We have found ways to adapt to living in our new climates. We now look up at the ring system that was once our moon that now encircles our planet and remember the time humanity had cheated death and beaten the odds; the time we had survived the Great Disaster. Now, we look forward to a brighter future for us all."

50 years later.... Pieces of the ruined lunar body start raining down. Then in one year the massive chunks hit with intense force.

Is it a quote from movie or something like that?
Because it sounds like a dramatic introduction for an apocalyptic story.

Since the tidal bulge will amplify the effect the core due to the orbit being so close. So expect volcanoes and tsunamis.

They already survived the impacts and tsunamis so far. So how about a city in a formerly stable mountainous location then? But then the waves would go over the mountains like the movie 2012 did, but this time volcanoes, rifts, and impacts.

Ha ha, I remember seeing imagery like this in Oblivion- the Moon was cracked by aliens, and the effect this event had on Earth wrecking our civilization much like this. :) Maybe the Tet just gave the moon a good push so it went within the Roche limit?  Never minding that if it had the energy to do that, it wouldn't need to drain the Earth for its fuel. XD Or that it could find more hydrogen in the outer solar system.  Anyway, nice work!

"In the year: 1994. (* snicker snicker *)
From outerspace comes a runaway planet hurtling itself between the Earth and the moon!
Unleashing cosmic destruction!
Man's civilization is cast into ruin.
2000 years later Earth is reborn.
A strange new world rises from the old.
A world of savagery, sorcery, and super science!"

Nicely done!  The coloring, perspective, and shading really work well together and make me feel as though I'm actually standing in this scene.  Love it!

I actually tried to think of a reason why moon broke up.
I managed to think two ways even thought they are kind of hard to believe.

1. A massive asteroid or even dwarf planet collided with moon (don't ask me from what solar system corner that object arrived and why. Because i don't know:D ).
    Collision didn't shattered the moon but it pushed it towards earth and then it went too close it broke apart.

2. Humankind Performed some sort high-tech experiment involving gravity.
    It take place in orbit between earth and moon and it used their gravitational forces to produce new kind of never ending energy.
    It failed horribly of course and it created some sort gravity pit which bring both the earth and the moon very close to each other. Aaaand then the moon broke up.
So yeah :D

Yep, and the broken moon is also featured in Origin: "Spirits of the Past" anime movie and this new sci-fi movie i can't remember it's name.
This was the reason why i was hesitant to paint this scene. It seems that the broken moon is used in allot of stories, but oh well i decided to still paint it :)
