The Hunger Games by strangerkate The Hunger Games by strangerkate
This is a watercolor painting of Peeta and Katniss, from The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. It's an ubber awesome grook (yes, grook, not book, meaning great-book) that I read last week. If you haven't read it already, then you really should. Because it's awesome. So, yeah. CHECK IT OUT A.S.A.P.!

I realize that Katniss always has her hair braided in the grook, but, I drew the braid and it made her look sort of screwy, so I just left it down in the end. Also, since I can't get all the little details in with watercolor like I can with pencil, I didn't draw the mockingjay pin. But know that it is still there, within Katniss's heart...

Or whatever. You know what I mean.

I like the style and it's really nice, especially katniss looks gorgeous! I like the loose hair. It looks as if you used something other than paint, really nice :)
Only thing I wanted to point out (being an archer) is that you don't fire arrows like that (the placement of the arrow on the bow should've been on the other side (the side near her body) and the firehand doesn't grasp the string) :noes: sorry man! (really hate to say stuff likes this) but I hope it'll make your next painting even better :)
Keep up the good work!

Thanks! And, yeah, I've had the flaw in the placement of the bow and arrow pointed out to me multiple times now. I used a reference for it a long time ago, but, I guess the reference wasn't accurate after all.

Oh sorry man I didn't really read the other comments before posting myself :noes:
And thats quite common I guess, because many people who make reference images don't actually do that sport but just look beautiful doing it =P
But I really like it :)

This is really amazing but there's one thing that bugs me The hand that's drawing back the arrow isn't right.. Otherwise it's awesome

The movie is really great, actually. Normally I am very pro-book and the movie is just okay, but, this one is an exception. They did a fantastic job with it.
