I had been meaning to read 'The Hunger Games' for a while when I finally saw the trailer to the upcoming movie. It looked awesome and finally convinced me to pick up the book; 'cause even though it was the trailer the finally got me to check it out, I wanted to be able to read it and use my own imagination instead of replaying the movie in my head as I read, as was the case with a certain young British wizard.
I was instantly hooked and devoured the entire series in no time. (I finished Mockingjay just yesterday.) I pretty much knew instantly that I had to do some fan art, and I wanted to do it soon before it became required by Fan Art Law that that I draw all the characters as they appear in the movie instead of how they did in my head- again, like a certain young British wizard. (So before anyone complains that they don't look like Young Mystique or Hotel For Dogs, I remind you this is MY vision of them, thank you very much.)
