Dramatic book scene contest entry!

Old post - please see update in replies!!!

One of my favorite sci-fi/fantasy authors (Peter V Brett, the Demon Cycle books) has a new novel coming out soon. To celebrate, he put on a contest for advanced read copies. The guidelines were very loose, just a dramatic re-creation of any scene in his books. I decided to crochet my scene. I’ve wanted to make a crochet version of this rock demon for years, but always put it off. The contest was the stimulus I needed!

Some details: the demon’s arm gets cut off in the story so of course I made it removable, with magnets! His tail and the boy’s arms & legs are wired so they can be posed.

I tagged the author in my post on my Facebook page and he liked my photos and commented on the post, saying it was amazing! I was overjoyed! Even if I don’t win a prize, I am so jazzed that he liked my project :star_struck:
