J.R.R. Tolkien believed that the phrase "in God's image" referred not to our looking like God, but rather, having the power to create.
Or rather, "subcreate." God can create animate objects that are self-aware, grow, breed, etc. Whereas we cannot -- so far -- create things that live in the real world. Creation without that vital spark is subcreation. Tolkien's Middle-earth, for him, was a subcreation: it lived in the minds of himself, his friends, and his readers, but of course could never exist in reality rather than just in fantasy because he's not God.
Just a philosphical theory, but I've always liked the idea of "subcreation" as an interesting distinction.
Well, if the little tiny particles in the drawing material are conscious on some level then I guess it would make you a god in a sense, or lord I think would be more appropriate. And the imaginary character you created exists on the imaginary plane where you are the exclusive creator of what you imagine.
Actually, if you want to get technical, you didn't create anything. You just rearranged some ones and zeroes on an already existing computer storage medium, itself a rearranged amalgam of already existing matter.
In an easy definition, yes I suppose the dictionary has that kind of meaning for the word. But I think you're looking for the dictionary's definition (and scientific and theological and common-sense) of "Creation" meaning to cause something to exist with no prior medium or groundwork.
Would be true if it were that way. We look at other belief systems pertaining to God and they are deterministically linked with natural patterns and it is quite obvious that they are formed around their environment. But not so with the Creator of the universe. We see that God is in control of the environment with Adam and Eve and that they knew God and yet they did not document their belief system. We find that documentation of God begins with Moses and goes into great detail about how God brought his people out of slavery, took them into a wilderness to survive for 40yrs, taught them the sacrificial system they followed for thousands of years and although we know that the God of the universe has dominion over everything, including weather, we find that yahweh is not purposefully recognized for his ability to control the weather and that he is not a deity of weather or of fertility but a God who hates sin. If we examine this closer we find a startling difference between this God yahweh and all other gods and we find that yahweh is not an attempt of man to define his surroundings but rather defines his purpose.
Looking back or even today, man always invented things for his own purpose and satisfaction. So why not think God as a creator and we as His creation and He made us for his own purpose. And why struggle to prove there...
