The Hunger Games by marbri The Hunger Games by marbri
i just read "The Hunger Games" by Suzanne Collins and it was amazing! i highly reccommend it. its just...so good. read it. now.

i sketched this picture of Katniss, then colored it with colored pencils, then edited it on photoshop

anyways, i kinda made this into a fatty bookmark, so you may use it as a bookmark as long as you ask me.

I love this work. It really conveys the atmosphere of the trilogy; Katniss here is as she is in the book: a deeply wounded girl who had to go through all that hell, balancing on the verge of insanity...

I love all the pretty pictures of Katniss that the fan art community has done, but the truth is... she's not supposed to be pretty. She's nice-looking at best and then for most of the series, she's covered in blood and wounds. I love how this conveys pain and tragedy and fear. It really speaks the message.

Wow!
I saw the trailer of The Hunger Games before reading the book, therefore I picture Katniss as Jennifer Lawrence. Your drawing pictures the entire book, amazingly. [link]

How did you get to know of the book?

Sometimes she seems to have her eyes open, another time to have them closed...

I heard of it from a friend and got it from the library. at the risk of sounding like a hipster, i actually read it before it was well-known

As it appears from the date of publishing your art.

The eyes really interest me: are they meant to be open or closed? Is it just my imagination playing with me when I can see both?

Good to see one that finally captures the spirit of the thing. The whole story is painful series of horrors, and I like how you focused on how she really felt throughout the books. This sums it up perfectly.

thank you so much. yeah, i really wanted to show the raw pain and fear, instead of the glamorized katnisses that i see so many of here.

thank you for not making her look all pretty and girly. Some people draw them withere hair perfectly curled and everything, and not a scrach in sight. Shes in the hunger games, shes not gonna look perfect!

marbri Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2011
thanks. that's what i was thinking when i drew this. She's in battle mode, meaning she doesn't care what she looks like. She's gonna be bloody and dirty and her hair is gonna be messy. I think it makes it look more real. thanks for the comment
