Katniss Everdeen, the girl on fire.
how her dress appeared, to me, when reading the book the first time. NOT how the movie portrayed it. and i actually designed this dress with my friend ~MariStars15 before the movie came out. except that time, it was made of paper, and stuck to a poster board.
please full view, her face came out so nicely.

compared to this: [link] from less than a year ago. how i have improved...

<EDIT> THANX to everyone who faves this piece. it makes me so happy to see that it's got over 200 faves, and over 800 views. i know that most established artists get way more, but i never expected such a big response. (usually i get 20 faves on a piece, tops) >W< thanx for all the watches, and the lovely comments.

and i'm planning on drawing some more pix of katniss, and her other dresses.

4/4/2013 MAJOR edit. hand, face, hair, dress.... in short, everything.

THIS GIRL IS ON FIRE~

Lame joking aside, it's a nice picture. It looks as though the dress fades off into flames.

Girl on fire, if you didn't already know, is by Alicia Keys...

O, o Her cheeks are too masculine they need to be plumper and a bit more rounded. Over all the rest is very well done. I always love your drawings and I hope sooner or later I can begin to wield a tablet pen just as good (if not better) as I do a regular pencil.

actually, i chose to draw her with high cheekbones, and she came from a poor district so she's supposed to be a bit thin. as well as the fact that the in-movie actress also had fairly high cheekbones.
thanx~ i'm sure you will.
