This was a product of me about to go to sleep, then listening to Hunger Games music, and then promptly getting inspired. SO MUCH FOR GETTING TO BED ON TIME. Oh well. This idea has been in my head for a long time and it was a lot of fun to do. I'm really pleased, and I got this done in record time- hopefully this means that my tablet is helping me to work more quickly. Critiques liked if you have them :]
Suggested listening: Deep Shadows
Safe and Sound
Come Away

If you've never seen/heard of The Hunger Games, please, do yourself a favor and pick up a copy. Watch the trailer here!
1: Made Katniss smaller to fit the vision of the picture in my head. Changed the Mockingjay watching her on the branch. Tweaked her jacket to look more like the one JLaw is wearing in the promo picture. Added detail to the trees and branches. Changed the the bow to make it look foreshortened because I realized it would be awkward to hold the bow like she was before. I may or may not have failed epically. Darkened the BG. If anyone thinks I should change anything back, let me know :]

Oh my God. This is truly an art. This week I've seen many fan art pictures of THG, and this is the very first what makes my heart stop. While I'm watching this picture, I can feel the pain Katniss is having. And I swear that it doesn't happen to me very often.
Those colours are really pretty, makes the picture look a little bit "creepy", I mean, that it's nigh, shadows are dark and you can't even know if someone is near you, because you can't see him/her. And that mist makes it more prettier. It's like... like Katniss' thoughts, they're unclear and confused. Like she's thinking, that she doesn't want to kill anyone, but she have to, if she wants to go home and meet Prim again. I really love how you drew this, how Katniss' feelings comes out. It is really lovely (and little bit sad), you should be proud of this. :)

Wow... The mist is a great effect. Love it!
You know what song fits The Hunger Games beautifully? "The Howling" by Within Temptation.
