8. Innocence- Katniss and Rue by commoner-pocky 8. Innocence- Katniss and Rue by commoner-pocky
Number 8 for the 100 Themes Challenge: Innocence.

I guess I should put spoilers around this... But you can't really tell what's happening from the picture unless you already know what happened. (convoluted sentences ftw) Yeah, I kind of purposely panned up from the... problem area near Rue's stomach. Also, sorry if any details are off- I drew this purely by memory.

Katniss and Rue from The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. A really impressive and well-made video of this scene (made me cry pretty hard) can be found here: [link]

Rue in the official movie is Amandla Stenberg, who is just about the most adorable thing on the planet. Which means this scene will be all the more heartbreaking...

Hope you like it :heart:

This is a wonderful image. Someone posted your work on their account. I didn't think they did it, so after some poking around I found who did. Your work is good. (:

How do I not have this favorited already? It's an absolutely beautiful drawing, with lovely shading, amazing intricacy on the hair and flowers, and such a poignant meaning. One of the best Katniss and Rue pictures I have seen. I would favorite this twice if I could!

Deep in the Meadow
Under the willow
A Bed of Grass
A Soft Green Pillow


Lay Down your head
and close your sleepy eyes
And When again they open
the sun will rise


Here it's safe
here it's warm
here the daisies guard you from every harm


Here your dreams are sweet
and tomorrow brings them true
Here is a place where i love you

Happens so fast yet in a split second you realize its too late. Marvel is dead and soon to follow is Rue. Proof that Katniss is still human enough to grant Rue the dignity she deserves in death. Beautifully colored... it looks as one would imagine such a moment. Its only later that Katniss fully unbends a further sign that the death has cost her yet if she can cry than all is not lost.
