Creation of the Gutterscape part 2

In time, the world of man was engulfed in strife. Cain became jealous of his brother Abel and slew him. Marked with shame for what he had done, he fled, and built the City of Enoch. For a time, this escape relieved him, but he was unable to escape the guilt of what he had done. He grew tormented in his old age, and he hated the stone of the city he had built, and the hill it rested on, and he hated the sun that shone on the shameful mark that branded him a killer.

Cain could not bear to be looked upon by the eyes of others, for he felt that they condemned him for his sin. One by one, he dismissed his disciples, commanding them to leave the city and wander the world, going as far away as their legs would take them, recording none of their steps, following no star, and despising the sun and moon. They were to tell no one of the city’s existence. In time, none were left in the city’s towers and streets but himself and his wife. Still he felt that the rocks and trees of the earth knew his sin and named him murderer.

One night, Cain prayed to God that he and his city could be lost to the world, struck from the surface of the earth. He did not care if he lived or died. It is said that on this night the last of Cain’s disciples forgot the road back to his city.

When Cain awoke, his prayer had been granted. The City of Enoch had been forgotten by the earth, and its place knew it no more. The city, and Cain, and his wife, had drifted out of this reality, and into the formlessness of the old uncreated reality. The city was at the center of a lost universe older than light and darkness.

I've been informed by one of my students that many of the strange "cube" art that I have seen on here is not actually a new artistic movement, but is actually, from a video game "minecraft."… This artist is quickly becoming a new favorite, if you like The Gutterscape, you'll find much to enjoy here.
Creation of the Gutterscape part 1
"And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep"

There are some who would say that the creation myth of the Gutterscape is just that - a myth. There are many who explore the Gutterscape's widest regions who do not believe a word that I have to say here. They may be right. I am not here to judge what is true or false, only to share the tale that the prodigals and their descendants have passed on to me.

It is said that there was a moment when God said "let there be light," and the swirling nothingness that was once open chaos fell into order. Some interpret this to be the "big bang" rather than a supernatural event. I do not know if the distinction matters. At this pivotal moment of decision, two realities were created. In one reality, there was light, and order, and our universe of solids and gases and energy and natural laws and life and death was sculpted into existence. In the other reality, the formlessness of the void was never interrupted, there was no firmament to separate water from water, dry land never rose from the deep, and life and humanity could never be brought forth. This reality could not be perceived by human senses. How could it be? It had no matter, no energy, no space or time. A human being could not exist in this reality. In this reality the idea of a human being could not exist. Existence could not exist. The rules of logic that define existence and nonexistence were left unwritten. This was a discarded reality. A reality that was left behind when the new reality arose.

Yet this uncreated world could not remain uncreated. The new reality was marred with imperfection, and decay and loss entered the world. The first forgotten things began to flow backward, down into the old reality.
Trade War
I can no longer remain silent... To me the nature ofthe "trade war" that Trump has decided to wage on China, is nothing more than what in my generation we would call a "pissing cotntest", and to me it has reached a level at which it has become unwise. To me, I have always thought that it's not a great idea for the U. S. A. to act like a schoolyard bully, to antagonize those with whom we would do trade. Sometimes the state of our world today causes me to feel INSANE.

I am happy that I havve the idea of the Gutterscape to devote myself to, it's good to have somewhere to escape... when the real world is like this. If you voted for trump, I still love you, what;s going on here is more complicated than what I can express here.
i have been working some on the gutterscape videogame lately, to make it into more of a "complete" and finished game, that could be downloaded and played by many peopel the world over. it is an important projecte for me.

If you are reading this, then probably you have some familiartity with "THe Gutterscape," a world that I frequently make up stories and illistrations of. Well, this game is about The Gutterscape, many of you already know that but I feel like to "cover the bases," that needs to be said.

I've incorporated many works by many of my artist friends into this game, a lot of work from Henry Blat and Edward Hommelgaard, plus some from the great seeker, bertrand phillousberg, voxhunden, shadesofparanoia, veguitarat, blindbirdwatcher, samm13, catscaps, and quite the few others.

What I'm looking for now, is a pictuer that I can use as the basis for a "boss fight, " for those who dont know thats a big fight with an extra big sized monster or villain, that happens at a climactic part of the game. In the game will be five boss fights, and four of them are figured out, you could say that they ve been "locked down" if you will, but theres one boss fight that i cant get quite a good idea for...

So here is the contest "challenge" for you: create a picture of a large "bos" type of enemy, for players of the game to do batle with.

Here are some hints for what I'm looking for:

-It should look like it would fit in with the look of the gutterscape

-It must be a new picture made just for this, not something old that you already have and would like to enter

-In this part of the game, the player has taken control of a "flying machine" so it should be something very large that you would fight while in a flying machine, though it need not also be flying.

-You dont have to figure out how the boss works and wht kind of moves it does, and what it's environment is like, and even if you do, i might want to change it. What I want is just a good image that has a good look for whatt i want

-Some of you I am already using some of your art for an idea of a boss fight, so you are disqualified from this. Henry Blat, shades of paranoia, edward hommelgaard and me are not allowed to enter the contest!!

If you win, the prize is that I will put your idea into the game, along with a credit to you with your name on it! The game will be free for anyone to play, so who knows how many people will see your work?? I will choose the winner in a few weeks, I am almost to that part of the game where I'm going to need it.
