The Hunger Games: Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

These are from the final book in the amazing Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins. These books are incredible so don’t really need my introduction.

So the first is set after Peeta is broadcast for (I believe) the third time. Peeta is wrestling with himself about what to say and ends up warning the rebels of the planned attack on District 13. Peeta is beaten and District 13 has 8 minutes of extra civilian evacuation time which saved lives. During the time in the bunker, whilst playing crazy cat, taunting Buttercup with a torch beam, Katniss realises how Snow is using Peeta against her. Once the all clear is sounded, they try to shoot a Propo, informing Panem that District 13 had survived an attack from the Capitol, but the realisation of how Snow is using Peeta breaks her and both she and Finnick have to be sedated.

The second is right at the end of the film. The rebels have won the war against the Capitol, but not without severe losses, including Katniss’ sister, Prim. Prim was killed by the second explosion in a 2-step explosive trap. After talking to Snow, she starts to have doubts about who really sent the hovercraft, despite the seal of the Capitol, as the Rebels were developing a trap identical to it. At the realisation that she has been a piece in Coin’s games as much as Snow’s games, she realises she has a monumentous decision to make.  At the execution of Snow, former president of Panem, she decides to kill Coin instead. She attempts to kill herself with the nightlock pill, but Peeta rips it away, leaving Katniss to face the consequences of her fatal actions.

Hunger Games – Catching Fire

And back onto the Hunger Games. These are from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins.

Katniss survived the 74th Hunger Games by pretending to be in love with Peeta. Now she must survive the 75th Hunger Games, a games where Snow is determined to kill her.

The first drawing is set before the Tributes Parade. Katniss is trying to remain inconspicuous and is waiting with the horses of the District 12 carriage. Finnick approaches her, asking seductively, ‘Would you like a sugar cube?’ resulting in a slightly awkward conversation.

The second is set in the ‘Bloodbath’ at the start of the Hunger Games. Katniss is about to shoot Finnick when he shows her Haymitch’s token, and suddenly finds out they are allies, much to her dismay.

Enjoy 🙂

The Hunger Games

Sorry about the 3 month delay, but I have been really busy with University work, so I haven’t have much opportunity to draw. So these are my most recent, and because I went to see ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay part 1’ I felt it appropriate to do some more Hunger Games drawings. These are both from the first book and are my first Hunger Games drawings that have taken place in the games. Enjoy:

Hunger Games 1 - Thresh saves Katniss and kills Clove - 22.11.2014
At the feast, Katniss tries to get some medicine for Peeta, who has blood poisoning, but is intecepted by Glove from District 2 who wanted to make a show out of Katniss’ death. But Thresh hears her bragging about the Careers killing Rue, saves Katniss and kills Clove. Thresh then spares Katniss because of what she did for Rue and he runs of with the backpacks for both Districts 2 and 11.
Huger Games 1 - Surgeons try save Peets's life and leg - 28.11.2014
The 74th Hunger Games are now over and Katniss and Peeta are the victors, but Peeta has lost/is loosing a lot of blood. The surgeons battle to save Peeta but Katniss feels like she is still in the Games and thinks the surgeons are threats that she must save Peeta from. She tries to stop them but is pushed back behind a glass door to stop her from doing anyting dangerous.

Just a note, there are some differences here to the film. I do my drawings from the books mostly, so there will be differences. Also I don’t think the second one is in the film, so my advice if you want to know exactly what is happening is to go and read the books. They are soooooooo much better than the films.

Mockingjay – Do you find this distracting? Katniss is on the way to District 8 to shoot some propos as she was useless in the studio. Finnick, who is still mentally unstable, wants to go but isn’t allowed. Katniss mentions a new trident to Finnick and he perks up, but with only wearing his hospital gown, Katniss suggests ‘Maybe some trousers?’ which ends up with a very uncomfortable Boggs and Finnick saying ‘Do you find this distracting?

Some drawings I’ve drawn recently from one of my favourite series by one of my favourite authors…Suzanne Collins. I would definitely recommend her other books ‘The Underland Chronicles’. She is a really great writer. Enjoy:
