KHAOS (or Chaos) was the first of the Protogenoi (primeval gods) on greek mythology to emerge at the creation of the universe. She was followed in quick succession by Gaia (Earth), Tartaros (the Underworld) and Eros (Love the life-bringer).

Khaos was the lower atmosphere which surrounded the earth - invisible air and gloomy mist. Her name khaos literally means the gap, the space between heaven and earth. Khaos was the mother or grandmother of the other substances of air: Nyx (Night), Erebos (Darkness), Aither (Light) and Hemera (Day), as well as the various emotion-affecting Daimones which drifted through it. She was also a goddess of fate like her daughter Nyx and grand-daughters the Moirai.

Later authors defined Khaos as the chaotic mix of elements that existed in the primeval universe, confusing it with the primeval Mud of the Orphic cosmogonies, but this was not the original meaning. Chaos, the vacant and infinite space which existed according to the ancient cosmogonies previous to the creation of the world, and out of which the gods, men, and all things arose. A different definition of Chaos is given by Ovid, who describes it as the confused mass containing the elements of all things that were formed out of it. According to Hesiod, Chaos was the mother of Erebos and Nyx. Some of the later poets use the word Chaos in the general sense of the airy realms, of darkness, or the lower world.

hello, genzoman. God (khaos, lol) wants to share and direct your opinion and the opinion of everyone who reads this into the future! today, before our eyes, the Lord is launching an evolutionary mechanism. it acts through the atmosphere. everyone is talking about warming, yes, it is coming. any student knows that when heated, gases expand. atmosphere there will be more. in the future, glaciers in the mountains will melt, the ocean level will rise, but then it will return to normal. plenty of water will evaporate into the atmosphere. the insects will get bigger. but the most interesting thing is how the person himself will change at a pressure of 5 atmospheres. the good news is that the meteorite won't destroy us, it won't reach the surface of the earth and burn up. there will be more protection. thank you for your attention.

Huh, I imagined Chaos as more of an amorphous mass

I thought Eros was Aphrodite's son aka Cupid

Well there are two versions of the myth.

Chaos was not a god or goddess, it was a formless, definitionless, empty and cosmic divinity that would better be described as an "It" than a He or She. Mythology even confirms this, as it came before such divisive and all too human concepts and qualities such as gender. You would have done better to depict it as an androgynous/sexless entity, still beautiful but also strange and inhumanly alien. 

Just an honest critique from one myth buff to another. 

Other than that inconsistency, however, it's a good pic and I'd like to see more like it.

Technically according to Hesiod's Cosmology: Chaos is male apparently...

Tu como sabes que Chaos era un ser femenino y no masculino? lo leíste en algún lado? o simplemente preferiste ilustrarla hembra???

Chaos fue la primer protogenoi (dios primigenio) y su origen nace con el nacimiento mismo del universo. Fue madre de otros dioses y diosas.

Pero de donde sacaron que era versión femenina?? yo leí la teogonía y la biblioteca de Apolodoro y no mencionan nada de su sexo

As much as I don't agree with Chaos being a woman...I love it. Absolute perfection, and if he was a woman I picture he'd look like this. :)
