"Fate consumes all, and when it was her turn, she looked back upon the world, now covered in a dark-blue moon glow haze in another dimension, one last time, before descending into the nexus of souls. A clothed figure stood at the doorway with a torch, awaiting for all who have passed on from the world of the living. Perhaps as a last consolation of human contact and conversation.

As she becomes consumed by the murky darkness, the pyre of blue flames on top of the nexus dissolves her body and soul and fires it up into the heavens for further judgement. Like a great war cannon, the pylons sound thundered and wailed, heavy with the indirect suffering it caused."

Very nice work on the keying job!

One comment i have is that the two towers left and right of the larger center one seem to be a bit weird to me, maybe its the speckled particle things around them.

Do you go to an Ai by any chance?
