Mockingjay, page 302 by Ratgirlstudios Mockingjay, page 302 by Ratgirlstudios
I was recently commissioned to draw a scene from Mockingjay, on page 302 of the book. It was a fun challenge to finally draw the Mockingjay armor and I can only hope I did it justice.

In the fluorescent light, the circles under his eyes look like bruises. "There's still time. You should sleep." Unresisting, he lies back down, but just stares at the needle on one of the dials as it twitches from side to side. Slowly, as I would with a wounded animal, my hand stretches out and brushes a wave of hair from his forehead. He freezes at my touch, but doesn't recoil. So I continue to gently smooth back his hair. It's the first time I have voluntarily touched him since the last arena.

"You're still trying to protect me. Real or not real," he whispers.

"Real," I answer. It seems to require more explanation. "Because that's what you and I do. Protect each other." After a minute or so, he drifts off to sleep.

I like Katniss' expression here! And Peeta's fist, intentional or not.

Great job!

i love it.
i've tried to draw this scene a few times, with great failure.
the only thing is, peeta was very demanding about his cuffs... and i see a lack of cuffs here.

Throughout the time period that peeta has no memory of Katniss I felt so bad for Katniss!

I think you've drawn this scene perfectly. Can you just draw a cartoon as the movie? You are so perfect.
