it reminds me of an episode from Doctor Who, in which Earth is about to explode...
Wonderful, but scary too.

Beautiful. Very nice adaptation of ME's Illusive Man.

The only problems I find in this image are:
- The blurry title: it always attracts my eyes and I find it actually annoying that it's not crisp and sharp (I believe it's because of the credits that you write right beneath it, the writing looks sharp even if blurred on the corners, it may be better to place your name somewhere else on the image)
- The space dust: I know space stock that's taken from NASA isn't the best quality possible, seeing what Hubble photographs I'm not surprised but it doesn't look as sharp and beautiful as for example what you showed in Lusitania Eclipse, it looks a bit pixelized if you get my meaning.

Sorry for the critique, it's just that this is one beautiful wallpaper and I'm sad about the points I cited above. :)

The title gives you some hint about the story too. I imagine the red pulse must be destroying the world. It's hard to get more decisive than that.

The funny part is that I had absolutely no idea of what kind of artwork I was doing when I created the floor, as the floor itself was a metal texture at first.

The texture worked nonetheless, it gave an incredibly unique look that I haven't seen anywhere else- and it catches the eye because of it.

Rest assured, your work can be found as my laptop's new background.

True, I realized not long after submitting that it really needs to be darker and have more red hue. I was too lazy to change it in all the different resolution versions though, lol.

Clean. Precise. Powerful.
Nicely done.
I see someone already mentioned that this is reminiscent of Mass Effect and Illusive Man. Destroying a planet is something he would do if it advanced humanity's interests, seems to me.
Thumbs up to you!

There are just two things that don't fit for me. The man is a bit to bulky and the chair is lacking a bit of red and needs to be a bit darker. Nonetheless it's a pretty good work :D
