Rue- The Hunger Games by aspiring-x Rue- The Hunger Games by aspiring-x
black and colored ink pens, ink wash, watercolors, acrylic

(working on character drawing)
Rue is one of my favorite characters from the novel THE HUNGER GAMES by Suzanne Collins.
This book (and its sequel CATCHING FIRE) is quite possibly the best book I've read in the last five years. I definitely recommend both of them to anyone!
I can't think of Rue without the Mockingjay- so I included one here.

Rue looks like she's wearing something from The Legend of Zelda. Heh, forget Legend of Zelda, this is Legend of Rue!

This is almost exactly how I pictured Rue while reading the book.
the Rue I pictured wore brown and wore long braids

i love the way literature comes to life in the minds of the readers. :) the story changes and morphs in each mind to become something greater than what just one mind could have created. isn't it cool how we all see our own spins on character appearances? :)

YAY!!! :)
let me know what you think when you finish... then of course you'll probably be craving CATCHING FIRE- the sequel. :) i read THE HUNGER GAMES in two (very late) nights! ooh! i hope you love it! i've been trying to lend my copy to my coworkers (so i have someone to talk to about the book!) but no dice so far. :(

Thanks so much for the recomendation.
I just finished it last night(techically it was early this morning) so i had to go and buy Catching Fire today. I loved it, i havent enjoyed a book that much since Dennis Lehanes Kenzie/Genaro series. your coworkers are missing out.

I like your interpritation of Rue and a Mockingjay, very fittting.

YAY!! I'm so glad you loved it!!!
They lowered the price of MOCKINGJAY on amazon and i won a gift certificate, so i got to buy it! i'm SO looking forward to its release!!
Let me know what you think of CATCHING FIRE! :)
i've never heard of that series, i'll have to look it up sometime! :)
thanks!

I thought Catching Fire started of a bit slow but once it got going i couldent put it down, i read about 3/4 of it in one night:).
Congratulations on winning a gift certificate, i'm a little jealous, i pre-ordered Mockingjay at a book store but i wont get here for another week and a half:(.
If you're interested, the first book in the Kenzie/Gennaro series is called A Drink Before the War, it's a good read if you like detective/noir stories

yeah, sequels always start out SO slow!! but YAY you liked it!! :)
yeah, my copy of MOCKINGJAY won't get here until saturday, even though it released today... so that means a stint of trying desperately to AVOID ALL SPOILERS!!! :)
i don't usually like detective stories, but i'll have to see if it's in the library (my book buying funds are tapped out for a while!) can't hurt to give it a try! :)

I know what you mean about trying to avoid spoilers :) sometimes it just cant be done.

If you do find it at your library, you'll have to let me know what you think of it.
The fourth book in the series has been adapted into a film, "Gone Baby, Gone", it's a great film but if you want to read the books it will have spoilers in it.
I keep recomending the film to my friends but most of my male friends won't watch anything without a transforming robot in it and most of my female friends won't watch a film about a missing child
