Most of the readers who have communicated with me about my books have a soft spot for Menoetius. (As do I.)
Well, one day, out of the blue, Melissa Conway, best-selling author, (HERE is her author page at Amazon), artist extraordinaire, photoshop and DAZ guru, (HERE is her YouTube video page), surprised me with this, her AMAZING execution of Menoetius transforming from stone into a flesh and blood guy.
It brought back one of my favorite scenes, where the sound of grating stone wakes Aridela on the mountain and she sees the nearby statue of the god step off his pedestal and cross to her, turning from stone to man as he comes.
There are a lot of characters in my books and I’ve tried to do them all justice. I confess that of all of them, I was very happy to see it was Menoetius who made enough of an impression on her that she spent who knows how many hours creating this.
Thank you, Melissa! SO COOL!
