We Could Go Home

Still in a Hunger Games mood, and wasn't quite satisfied with my first attempt at Katniss [link] , so here's our beloved duo from District 12!

Josh Hutcherson (Peeta Mellark) and Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss Everdeen)

Charcoal Pencils 2B, 6B
Kneaded Eraser

10 x 8"

Drawing time: About 5 hours

I was originally aiming for "minimalist" style, but once I started on Jennifer's gorgeous locks I couldn't help myself and ended up with a sort of hybrid between minimal and regular. This may very well end up being my "thing" because I LOVE details but I HATE shading skin, so it really works out perfectly for me ;)

I've been debating the title because I want it to be THG associated, but at the same time the portrait is of the actors as themselves and not in character so I don't know if "District 12 Tributes" or "Star-Crossed Lovers of District 12" or anything along those lines is really appropriate. In the meantime I figure a quote fit nicely (suggestions are welcome!)

this is really great!! maybe if Katniss' hair was slightly straighter, or in a braid or something, it might look more like her. way better than anything I can draw!! great job!!

Doing details in any piece of work can be tedious at times, I know, I had years of practice. I love shading skin, though my favorite pencils to use are graphite instead of charcoal, but your work is amazing anyhow :D
