The Hunger Games comic
I wanted to do some fanart to celebrate the conclusion of the trilogy. Unfortunately I am really terrible at fanart. I just am. Ugh. I have this awful mental block when it comes to drawing someone else's characters, especially if they're for something visual, like a comic or movie. You should see my pile of rejected Avatar: The Last Airbender sketches. I draw those characters a lot, but they never end up looking right. I guess the problem is that I want them to look how they look in the official show/comic/movie/whatever, but I also want to draw them in my style, so they never end up looking the way I want. Fanart. I have such angst over it. SIGH.
Anyway, I am terrible at fanart. So I thought, what the hell, why not a fancomic for The Hunger Games? Thus I ended up doing a 5 page fancomic adapting the opening sequence of the book. ... uh, yeah. XD
You can read the whole thing here. The adaptation is only of the first couple pages of the book, and you can read those pages on the "Look Inside" on Amazon. If I had my own copy of the book, I would've chosen a bloodier action scene to draw, but I don't and the hold line at the library is 70 people long.
A couple of notes: I think adaptations of books into comics that take large sections of the original text and paste them over images are awful. So I didn't do that. I'm also sick to death of post-apocalyptic Mad Max clothing/environments. Get a new movie to ripoff, game and movie makers! What little environment/clothing there is in the fancomic I decided to ground in reality. The District 12 shot is based on some pictures of abandoned camp bunkers.
