An Outline Against The Coal.

So, I made Hunger Games art! I actually had this finished a week or so ago. My excitement for Catching Fire kept growing until I had to do a little arting to let it out. This is totally not my original concept at all, not even the same picture - I still may try that idea though - so I was mostly flying by the seat of my pants on this one, rolling with it as it came along. I tried some charcoal chalk and paint this time. I actually used a blush brush to put charcoal chalk on my face for Halloween and then the brush was ruined, so I threw it away. But I luckily decided to pull it back out of the trash, because I thought it would be a good way to apply charcoal for art - which it was, as I used that technique here. I had to touch Katniss up with white paint because I still haven't figured out how not to get dust everywhere. But I knew it needed something more and The BFF agreed, so I added the outlines. My sister suggested I add the Mockingjay, which was way harder than I thought it would be. I'm not 100% satisfied - I never am with my art, I'm such a perfectionist - but I'm getting better at blending two different mediums, I think - in this case, charcoal and paint.

I thought this might look better not quite so up-close, so I took some photo shots as well.
