*Please, have a time to look at full-size version for all detales. Thank you.


This piece is named after the in-game music composition for the computer space simulator game "Independence War 2: The Edge Of Chaos".

The track, as all stuningly amazing music for the game in general, was composed by Christopher Mann. The gameplay, story, art and soundtrack together made the time I was spending on it truly inspiring. I find that time the most beautiful I ever have had in my life, the most important realizing due to what the understanding was born. The understanding of dream about space.

So, I certainly was happy If god would have a chance to ask me personally about this. I should thank Particle Studios and Chris Mann personally for all this miracle.

And I hope this work is corresponding to that atmosphere of the game somehow. This is the goal that was pursued.

Story <Warning! Content some spoilers!>

On the picture you can see the huge pirate base hidden in fogs of the near emission nebula, that was left by the grandmother of the main hero, who was the head of all the pirate activity in the badlands. After the death of the hero's father, that was initiated by Maas (the head of largest corporation in Badlands) due to their conflict, the young boy will stay alone with the old artificially intelligent character. It was a gift of the father, who actually suspected his such end and left it to help the son in that case. Then it appears that this a.i. was earlier belong to grandmother and contained the secret location of the base. From this point the main storyline of the game begins.

Edge of Chaos is one of the best games ever. I was expecting to find more fan-art about it; let's hope people will get more interested in this game, some day; it has a lot of inspiring content!

looks great! there's something very Death Star-like about the big one, very ominous. The details on the smaller one are superb.

The station or sphere-ship is impressive, the negative shapes give a great deal of detail.

my only negative comment would be the lack of definition in the nebula but its hardly a loss.
