Shadow in the Forest - The Hunger Games

Ok, first thing I want to say is that I know that this isn't the original Katniss. It is a fan made picture that someone did, and I used as reference. The hair was the biggest challenge, but it helped me work on the quality of how I do the hair.

But I did this picture for a friend of mine who wanted it drawn. Of course I didn't refuse at a challenge! Or request...
He ended up really enjoying it :) I asked him to name the drawing, and he came up with... Katniss. I urged him to name it something other than the character's real name, as this isn't the same girl. I suggested that he come up with a name that deals with one of her colors. Since she wears a lot of brown, he decided on naming the drawing "Shadow in the Forest". I agreed.
I think I ended up putting 8+ hours into this drawing, spread over two days.

But I'm happy my friend came to me with this request, because it sparked a 7+ drawing streak that I went on, and can't seem to stop. I love it!

Completed on April 6th.

I'm not a Hunger Games fan, but the drawing is great! I have to agree with everyone else, the hair is amazing...

I've always had trouble with making the background dark. I would use wax/tracing paper so it wouldn't smear, but its kinda hard to find here in Liberia. I wonder if kitchen wax paper would work? *plots*

Great work!

Everyone's been posting on their blogs and all over facebook about it...XD I don't have anything against it, just have never read or seen it. :P

Wax paper is awesome. XD I'll have to experiment with it today... O_o
