Katniss Everdeen by burdge Katniss Everdeen by burdge
katniss from The Hunger Games.
SUCH a kickass book, no joke. :nod:

i couldn't help but draw this dress, described as her
outfit for her interview (for those of you who've read it).
i was literally mapping it out in my head as i read.

kat (c) suzanne collins

PS. DOOOOOOD. the sequel comes out in september.

I really like this pic. of Katniss. It looks just like it did in the book. The only few critiques that I would make are:

1) It (only kind of) looks like she's leaning back while standing. sometimes what helps me, is when I draw the person, fully, standing just how I want them, then when I make sure that this is exactly how they would stand in real life, I add the clothes, and erase anything that is covered by them. Im not sure if this is how you draw people, but, if it is, this point was pretty much useless. On to #2!

2) You know how in the Mockingjay (book #3- yes, I replied so late that the book you were anticipating while drawing this has already come out) Cinna said that he had spent a lot of time studying fire? Try imagining how the color in fire would blend, so that you can't really figure out when one color stops or starts? Try doing this with your coloring. I know it's hard with pencils, but sometimes if you get like, a ratty old cloth or something wet, (REALLY LIGHTLY you don't want to make puddles on your wonderful art (: ) and try using that to smear the colors. But, by the way, i do would not try this on detailed areas, sich as their face.

This is an AMAZING drawing, and I hope you didn't think it was too harsh :) Im a huge fan of your work, and good luck!
What do you think?

I'm fan of The Hunger Games and I always like how Katniss's interview dress was described and I think you pull it off very well. I also like very much how you actually gave her black her instead of brown like everyone else because in book it says she has straight black hair,olive skin, and gray eyes. But most people give her brown hair,brown eyes and light skin. But you stuck with the description so thank you for that. As far as the drawing goes it looks like Cinna drew it ( that's a good thing) Keep up the good work.

I really love her dress, and especially the flames winding up her arms. :D

She is absolutely GORGEOUS!
I almost didn't recognize her, except for the fact that she's wearing a fire dress, and that she labels the pic.
This reminds me of Kelsey from tigers curse, the ribbon in her hair. And the patterns on her arms remind me of Kelsey's snake and her tattoo.

This was the drawing that I based my dress on. (I loved THG so much that I wanted my own) So creative especially in the coloring. I found it before but couldn't find it again.

awesome dress, i always think when looking at dresses such as much boob tape did you use there? O.o lol! i do love this picture, well done!

this is such an amazing dress and drawing i wish i had a dress like that. id be twirling around in it all day every day.

Wait what? From what I've heard this doesn't fit the personality of Katniss at all. That dress is way too fancy for her.
galadriel-602 Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Of course it doesn't; she'd never wear something like that normally. This is one of the dresses that is made for her when she's in the Capitol, and trying to impress potential sponsors for the Hunger Games. She doesn't really have the choice to not wear it.

:omg: :jawdrop: I just drew something so extremely similar to this last week! (only yours is WAY better.) and I just found this! SO CRAZY!!! I never posted it but now maybe I will. WOW.

They should have asked you to design the dress for the movie. Yours is about twenty million times better than any of theirs...

I used this picture for a reference one time, and I didn't even know it was your drawing. Her pose is pretty much the same but the gloves and dress are different on mine. I really liked it when I saw it, now I find it on your gallery and I'm like, oh ****. Yours is still better, though.

GRR! How could they possibly ruin the opportunity of making the most amazing dress on screen when they made the movie?! Love Katniss' expression, anyway. So perfect. I do agree with shermonsinmango's critique and think you could blend the pencils so it looks a little more like fire, but I still completely love this.

How do you... Color? Draw? Be amazing?
ali15678 Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2012
This was exactly how I envisioned her dress. The movie's dress was corny, fake, and such a LETDOWN. They should've let you design it(:

Hi! I don't know if I've commented on this before, but I've always love this piece of Katniss! This year, I'm going to be Katniss in her interview dress for this coming Halloween and I'm making the interview dress with my aunt. If you don't mind, I would like to use this fan art as the base/design reference for the dress since it's actually how I pictured the dress to look like. So, is this okay?
