the hunger games by RustyArtist the hunger games by RustyArtist
.....sorry I'm not a fan of this book series.....this was my summer project before freshmen year.....I was forced to read The Hunger Games.....and draw this............

these were drawn in separate sheets but I combined them with the help of Paint (plain old Paint).....

Characters (left to right): Rue, Katniss, Peeta

EDIT: Okay, okay. FOR THOSE WHO ARE COMPLAINING ABOUT HOW I DREW RUE:

I DID NOT KNOW RUE WAS BLACK UNTIL THE MOVIE CAME OUT! WHEN I READ THE BOOK, HER ONLY DESCRIPTION WAS "DARK SKIN AND DARK HAIR". IT DID NOT OCCUR TO ME THAT THAT MEANT THAT SHE IS BLACK. I THOUGHT SHE WAS SOME KIND OF REALLY TAN PERSON.

SO I'M SORRY THAT SHE DOES NOT LOOK LIKE THE ONE FROM THE MOVIE.

ANYWAY, NOBODY WHO COMMENTED HERE EVER COMPLAINED ABOUT HER RACE UNTIL THE MOVIE CAME OUT.

I really like Katniss! She looks super cool. I reckon if you were a fan you could draw some AMAZING fan art for her.
And now that you mention it, Rue is probably just tanned, but the movie probably portrays her as black.

The book sort of implies that she's black, but I can see how people missed it. 'Dark skin' made me assume that she was black, but different people interpret things differently.

no its not, I always just imagined her more philipino looking, with like olive toned skin, but once I saw the movie, it all made sense and I didn't love her any less than I had before (and I love her alot.)

All it says is "dark skinned" in the book, so she could be black, or could be something else entirely. Also, this is centuries in the future and there might be mixes we don't know about now.

how I imagined everyone from the book is how it turned out in the movie, except for Cinna lol. And why in that guy tarred and feathered?

AJ: It took me a while to figure that out too (about Rue). Whether you're a fan or not, I think these pictures are fabulous and accurate enough. :) You did a really good job.

Don't you hate it when you're required to read something? It takes all the fun out of it...

I like this pic, and I thought she was just really tan. The reason I read the Hunger games was because my friends said that I reminded them of Rue, and I didn't know who she was. And because they said I reminded them of Rue, I imagined someone similar to me, and i'm not super dark, but I'm just in between really tan and tan.
