WIP: Mockingjay: The Assassin by Catching-Smoke WIP: Mockingjay: The Assassin by Catching-Smoke
A work in progress, but it's all I'm doing for now. Katniss needs redrawing.

Scene taken from Mockingjay, whilst in Squad 451. I have not drawn Katniss in her Mockingjay armour-plated outfit.

After about an hour, Peeta speaks up. "These last couple of years must have been exhausting for you. Trying to decide whether to kill me or not. Back and forth. Back and forth."
That seems grossly unfair, and my first impulse is say something cutting. But I revisit my conversation with Haymitch and try to take the first tentative step in Peeta's direction. "I never wanted to kill you...

(and so on.)

I love this scene. Peeta was so confused, he barely spoke to Katniss when he came to the 13, so this conversation, little short conversation, made my day when I read it.

Wonderful--love casual you made Peeta, and how uncomfortable you made Katniss. The net must have been difficult to make, but it looks worth it--looks very real, along with the bows, and the armor Katniss is wearing.

i think this is beautiful picture, exactly how i imagined it.

when you have more than one character on a page you should make one stand out more than the other to bring the focus towards them. i think this scene is more focused on peeta there fore peeta should emphasized more, to the importance is mostly on him. do you get what i'm saying(most people don't). otherwise it's great.

what type of pencils do you use, and what size paper.

poor hijacked peeta. i really did feel sorry for peeta, but i can't blame katniss for avoiding him. but i partially think it's her fault that peeta's been hijacked.
im half and half.
i love this picture, it shows the dystopian world of the hunger games clearly, and the sparking struggles for survival against the dictatorship and totalitarian Capitol.

this is beautiful. i was just telling my mom today about how now that HG is all popular and "fans" made it super boy crazy it makes it harder to enjoy. but its people like you who capture and draw the true beauty of HG that all real fans love it for, that remind me of all the (bitter)sweet reasons i love the hunger games in the first place. thanks <3 this is one of my favorite scenes from Mockingjay and it really made my day! :tighthug:

Wow thank you! I understand where you are coming from, the books to me aren't about the relationships but about the struggles against their totalitarian government. That's why I find the books interesting and that's also why I'm not on any 'team'.
