The Hunger Games: Rue's Death by Deih The Hunger Games: Rue's Death by Deih
"...Her hand reaches out and I clutch it like a lifeline. As if it’s me who’s dying instead of Rue.
“You blew up the food?” she whispers.
“Every last bit,” I say.
“You have to win,” she says.
“I’m going to. Going to win for both of us now,” I promise...

Lately i'm really obsesed with The Hunger Games trilogy, i'm almost finishing the third book, and I couldnt help to make a fanart of one of the most emotive momments from the book: Rue's death. I really like this character and I want to make her my little tribute. As well, I must say that the great Amandla Stenberg played a great role as Rue on the film ^^

The drawing: It has been difficult, but i have enjoyed a lot and I really like the result ^^
I took some pics of Amanda Stenberg as reference:
And this one for the outfit design, from an action figurine toy (LOL) [link]

And here you can see the first pencil sketch: [link]

I think i will be doing for a while some fanarts of the hunger games. I think all the people should read those books LOL They are really great.

I will upload soon some pictures of the work in progress of this drawing and I willl post the links here too :) hope you enjoy my art ^^

Amazing way to portrait this sad and touching scene!

You have really outdone yourself this time! The how much you improved lately really surprises me!

I must say you did a wonderful work trying semi-realistic style! I love the way you colored it with a warm color palette to portrait a cold scene. Also the design and the pose, it looks so calming and natural, like if she were dreaming.

And the hair, omg that hair!!! how did you do that hair?! Curly haisrs are the most difficult ones to draw/color and still it looks so epic.

I am so in love with this picture. I can't wait to see more of your upcoming pictures!

PD: Please, I invite you all to take a peek to the rest of =Deih's works/commission slots.

I would like to ask your permission to enter this piece of art into my brand new hunger games group. I am taking many hunger games pictures and putting them in the group. At the end, (which will be whenever I desire), I shall pick a winner, a runner up, and a 3rd place. These people may have whatever they do request from me. Weather that is a member ship, A llama, or just a watch, I shall do the best of my ability to provide it.

Amazing talent of yours. It's like sleeping, not death. I felt bad she died at the movie, but the flowers are just XD
