When and why did Hindu deities start being depicted as having blue skin?

Not all deities of course, just specific ones like Krishna, Vishnu, etc.

I'm a non Hindu, wanting to use a Hindu/Tamil deity in my game design

Edit: I've had my question answered and have gained enough knowledge. I will not be using any deities or gods from Tamil/Hindu culture. I have gained the inspiration to use a human king called Nahusha and the beliefs about him I've been informed about in this post fit perfectly without distorting or disregarding your cultures and beliefs. I thank everyone in this sub for being kind with their answers, and I've learnt some more about your beautiful religion. My intention was always to shine a positive light on cultures with my design, and I've figured the best way to do that. From a Muslim, from the bottom of my heart, I wish goodwill and the best to all the kind people here. Have a great day!

Hi, I'm a Bengali teen living in the UK, so as a result I have very limited knowledge about Hinduism and wanted to ask my question so as not create too offensive content.

I'm designing a concept of a game for a competition in my college and had inspiration to use a Tamil name and background for my main character. While the rest of the game doesn't use any sort of Hindu, Tamil, or religious characters and influence, I wanted to use the character Kartikeya in my game. I have an understanding that he is a liked deity and the god of war, but I wanted to use him as a primary antagonist/villain in my game, while still making it understood that he was in his youth a good and noble being, and that my personal views and representations and accurate to Hindu and Tamil beliefs.

Would this be okay, or too offensive?

Bonus: if too offensive, is there another being from Hindu/Tamil beliefs that I could use, that would be a better villain for my game.

Is it disrespectful to work with a Hindu deity if I'm white?

Hey, everyone! I've fallen out of practice for a while and decided I wanted to try and get back into my craft and in the process I thought of a question I wanted to pose to you all. I've felt drawn to Ganesh for a while and I wanted to start researching more into them and maybe work with them in the future, but I wasn't sure if that may be disrespectful, as I'm a white american. This may be a silly question, but I just wanted to get some varied opinions before I look further into Ganesh. Thanks!

Are all pagan gods (particularly religions Judaism never had contact with in the Tanakh esp during the Torah) shedim? For example would Shinto spirits and Hindu deities be considered unclean false gods in opposition to Yahweh?

One of the predominating thoughts in fundamentalist Christianity is that pagan gods of the Old Testament were demons in disguise. Its gotten to the point that any time discussion about religion gets involved with cultures that Moses and his descendant Prophets heck the Jews never got into contact with during the Biblical period such as say the Chinese, there is immediate accusation that these cultures' deities are demons posing as humanoid divine beings.

I cannot tell you how many blogs there are out there by Christian fundamentalists accusing Shiva and the Hindu gods as demonic entities or videos on Youtube proclaiming Buddha is a servant of Satan (under the wrong assumption that Siddartha Guatma is worshipped as the God of Buddhism), etc with frequent citation of Deuteronomy 32:17 and Psalm 106:37 as proof.

With that said I am curious on the Jewish pov? Is Shedim correctly translated as demons like most English translations of the bible state the verses?

Or is there so much misunderstanding on shedim and "demonology" of Judaism by Christians? If shedim is correctly translated as demons, do they apply to all other Gods including Amaterasu, Mithras, Ganesh, Zeus, the Trinity of Christianity, and Allah (even if Muslims and Christian believe they are the same as Yahweh)? Or are they only region-specific around Israel and the border countries around her today?

Saturday is Ashura, an Islamic holiday. Ashura is also a war deity in Japanese Buddhism (from Hindu Asura). Ashur is the name of the main god in Mesopotamian (Assyrian) mythology, and the grandson of Noah in the Bible. Ahura is a class of Zoroastrian divinities (eg Ahura Mazda).

I don't know if all of these are related, it may be too difficult to know. It is interesting that there is a similar word that touches all of the major religions.
