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.

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.
