...and may the odds be EVER in your favour... by HayleyLV ...and may the odds be EVER in your favour... by HayleyLV
I remember tears streaming down your face
When I said, "I'll never let you go"
When all those shadows almost killed your light
I remember you said, "Don't leave me here alone"
But all that's dead and gone and passed tonight

Just close your eyes
The sun is going down
You'll be alright
No one can hurt you now
Come morning light
You and I'll be safe and sound...


Taylor Swift - Safe and Sound [link] :heart:

Hey guys! I'm finally drawing again!:dance: Here is my newest drawing - Katniss and Peeta from The Hunger Games. :aww: Love the book and the movie. They are both amazing!:heart:
Actually I started drawing this on April (Gosh, I'm slow. :D) after watching the movie, but I really had no time for drawing so it's here now. ;)
Hope you like it! (:

Ahh, thank you so so much! :hug: You're way too cute!

I'm glad that you like it so much!

Well, I usually don't know what to answer when somebody asks that, it's hard to describe what exactly I do. Basically I draw all the light lines of the hair and then start shading. I make the drawing darker gradually. And for the lightest parts I use a rubber. But what you should remember the most - you must have a lot of patience! ;)

You're most welcome! You know I do! :iconspazhugplz:

And cool! That's a different way than what I was taught, but it certainly seems effective!! Might have to use that.... =P And of course... Patience.. Might need to tweak my technique on that one. ;P

Well, I just do things in my style and how I feel they should be done. Teachers can't always teach everything, you have to experiment yourself with different methods. ;)

Haha, yup! Well then... good luck! ;p

Oooo... really nice job. I love the expressions that are on their faces. I saw the movie too, and liked it, but I also felt a wee bit uncomfortable with the idea of all the killing... maybe it's just me though...

The idea is rough, I agree. But at least it's not some kind of soap opera. People kill people in reality. :(

Brilliant as ever! I did a course that showed me how to shade my drawings properly and let me just say I now have a greater appreciation of your drawings and any black and white piece in general....
I also love the small bit of colour you've added with the Mocking Jay.

Yeah, haha, smooth shading is a problem for many artists. People tend to appreciate something higher when they actually realize how hard it is to make it look like that. ;)
I'm really glad you love the drawing, thanks again!:heart:

Awwe, thanks David, I'm really glad you think so!:aww:

I like the symbol too, that's why I added it there. + I wanted to give a feeling of fatality and danger. + the lyrics of the song further go Don't you dare look out your window darling everything's on fire... So yeah...:giggle:

Me too!:highfive: I love it soooo much!:heart: Awesome actors, awesome characters.

Thanks again!:hug:
