The Creation by *GENZOMAN AdigunPolack gushes, "In all of my time on deviantART, I have never, ever, ever seen such an utterly phenomenal artwork that displays the rich and timeless creation of man so spectacularly than in "The Creation" by none other than GENZOMAN himself!! The many, countless details (including God's mighty hand forming the very first man from out of the very dust of the earth) is just JAW-DROPPINGLY outstanding right from minute one, and the colors, impact and overall execution are just undeniably damn incredible beyond words... this is just beyond EPIC indeed, and a humongous congratulations to the artist on the overall creation of this grand, grand masterstroke of work!!!"

Lets Wikiattack!:

A creation myth or creation story is a symbolic narrative of a culture, tradition or people that describes their earliest beginnings, how the world they know began and how they first came into it. Creation myths develop in oral traditions, and are the most common form of myth, found throughout human culture. In the society in which it is told, a creation myth is usually regarded as conveying profound truths, although not necessarily in a historical or literal sense. They are commonly, although not always, considered cosmogonical myths—that is they describe the ordering of the cosmos from a state of chaos or amorphousness.They often are considered sacred accounts and can be found in nearly all known religious traditions.

Several features are found in all creation myths. They are all stories with a plot and characters who are either deities, human like figures or animals who often speak and transform easily. They are often set in a dim and nonspecific past, what historian of religion Mircea Eliade termed in illo tempore. And all creation myths speak to deeply meaningful questions held by the society that shares them, revealing of their central worldview and the framework for the self-identity of the culture and individual in a universal context

Mythologists have applied various schemes to classify creation myths found throughout human cultures. Creation ex nihilo (L. "from nothing") is thought to be the most common type of creation described in these stories. It is the type of creation described in the Genesis creation narrative in the Bible in Judaism and Christianity, and also in the Koran's Sura VII in Islam. It is also known as "creation de novo". Besides in the Bible, Ex nihilo creation is found in creation stories from ancient Egypt, the Rig Veda and many animistic cultures in Africa, Asia, Oceania and North America. In most of these stories the world is brought into being by the speech, dream, breath, or pure thought of a creator but creation ex nihilo may also take place through a creator's bodily secretions. The literal translation of the phrase ex nihilo is "from nothing" but in many creation myths the line is blurred whether the creative act would be better classified as a creation ex nihilo or creation from chaos. With ex nihilo, the potential and the substance of creation springs from within the creator. Such a creator may or may not be existing in physical surroundings such as darkness or water, but does not create the world from them. In creation from chaos the substance used for creation is pre-existing within the unformed void:

"1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

3 And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light "day," and the darkness he called "night." And there was evening, and there was morning--the first day.

6 And God said, "Let there be an expanse between the waters to separate water from water." 7 So God made the expanse and separated the water under the expanse from the water above it. And it was so. 8 God called the expanse "sky." And there was evening, and there was morning--the second day.

9 And God said, "Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear." And it was so. 10 God called the dry ground "land," and the gathered waters he called "seas." And God saw that it was good.

11 Then God said, "Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds." And it was so. 12 The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. 13 And there was evening, and there was morning--the third day.

14 And God said, "Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark seasons and days and years, 15 and let them be lights in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth." And it was so. 16 God made two great lights--the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars. 17 God set them in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth, 18 to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 And there was evening, and there was morning--the fourth day.

20 And God said, "Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the sky." 21 So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living and moving thing with which the water teems, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 22 God blessed them and said, "Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds increase on the earth." 23 And there was evening, and there was morning--the fifth day.

24 And God said, "Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: livestock, creatures that move along the ground, and wild animals, each according to its kind." And it was so. 25 God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.

26 Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground."

Isn't there some Christian rule about never drawing the Face of God?

segura2112's avatar

As far as I know, no. That's just Islam.

Actually, yes. Second Commandment.

Yw. And I realize it’s actually the third commandment. Sorry that I got confused.

Such an awesome image. All your artwork is amazing. Not that it needs to be said!

The interesting thing about the creation myth was that the Canaanites tried to label Yahweh as El. The integration of the Hebrews to their warmongering neighbors made Yahweh infamous among them. El is listed at the head of many pantheons. In some Canaanite and Ugaritic sources, El played a role as father of the gods or of creation. El is synonymous with Yahweh. In Ugaritic the plural form meaning "gods" is ʾilhm, equivalent to Hebrew ʾelōhîm "powers".
Which is why angels in hebrew are called bene Elohim.

Hebbənê hāʼĕlōhîm,[1] בני האלהים , literally: "Sons of the gods"……

YHVH has never looked so Brolic, this is the kind of deity you don't wanna tussle with.

For a post that was supposed to be about general creation myths,  we could have done better than slipping in a sermon on Genesis.  Such as how the Norse myth was about creating the nine worlds from the body parts of a giant slain by Odin and his brothers.  Or how the various environments influenced the myth style... the Norse dwelled in a freezing wilderness while the Jews lived in the dessert and how desserts are filled with plants to make you high.
