So I took the stock Wiki page photo of Arx and used that as my background
Then I found a phot on Google for the Acclimator Class and cut it out to layer it on background
I then just created a duplicate of it with layer masks and used explosion brushes over the layer mask to reveal the duplicate photo via the explosion brushes
I then made another layer and used brushes with various colors to make the explosion and smudged it and dodge/burned it a bit.
