Reactions to the Genre
In general, the halloween/skulls/metalcover/horror/lurid/gore would have a big impact on certain people, but never significantly affected my artistic persona since those pieces were in the minority. They still are. As I have posted on social media, it was a novel experience, to receive certain implied moral judgments based on 20 year old artwork, by some young staff member of Patreon, who was not presented the material together with the rest of my extensive portfolio.
Since I have an attorney in my family, and have personally volunteered to intervene in domestic abuse situations, confronting 240lb plus men, who act like alpha males, until they are faced with someone who has extensive training ( martial arts/ weightlifting); encountering male keyboard warriors over halloween/skulls/metalcover/horror/lurid/gore artwork was a farcical experience.
Part of the ‘troll’ practice, of creating arguments for the sake of having something to do, as a form of interaction; fake causes – the real activity, more like Ham radio; killing time, talking to talk, but with the anonymity of the internet, pretending to care about, and be upset, or have certain opinions about things, as a game in itself. This nuance of insincerity, and regular practice of ‘mis-information’ was educational; the internet as a social tool for propagating art is a journey I began last year.
I greatly appreciate all the kind patronage from subscribers whose sincere interest, keeps this endeavor rewarding. Thanks!
Erydeth – Part III of X
Crisis: A Secret Army from the Void.
Crash of the Erydesis:
The void entity, Cuj, was reached by the Wikkoth, during a battle with the Immutables tasked to quarantine them. Some Wikkoth, managed to crash the Vessel,- Erydesis – containing artifacts of power designed to control the races being quarantined. Thezrog was leader of this Wikkoth group, and took the most powerful artifact, among those present, the Helm of Odonouth which enabled him to influence the Wikkoth to follow his commands and make him Emperor of Erydeth. The Immutables were jettisoned from the vessel, and their stasis chambers kept them in indefinite torpor, unable to contact the Septendecim.
Wikkoth Take the Artifacts of Power.
The Wikkoth scavenged the artifacts, and hid the Immutable stasis capsules, and used the artifacts, to directly draw power from the Immutables encased within. Using an artifact, that few Immutables, are entrusted with: The Pristine Forge, the Wikkoth were able to create their own ‘corridors’ portals – discovering ‘Cuj’ accidentally, in the Nyhaelos Universe, as Cuj intercepted the aethyrwind, as the Wikkoth opened portals along the continuum of the forge’s reach, – including its’ source, the Mophorge, in the Nyhaelos border galaxy.
Cuj Wikkoth – The Devourer
Cuj, communicated to the Wikkoth, – lying, and manipulating them to believe he was the most powerful being , and could grant them a new, greater world, if they served him; and he offered them knowledge, of the Umbra Forge, and where to use it.
