Sorry for the break. I was out for a bit of surgery but back and ready to go.
So let's get back to the Hunger Games piece. The new book, Mockingjay, comes out on the 24th and for fans of the series, like me, we can't wait.When I posted last about it, here, I was just creating some sketches of Katniss. Since that time I made some additional thumbnails of how I might like to compose the portrait.With these scribbles I was ready to shoot some references. I had just the right model (she's even 16) and location in mind. The shoot was a great success except for the hoards of mosquitoes. It was unbelievable. I really like much of the pose but there are some things I will have to fix. I captured the mood I was hoping for though and I included the elements of water and woods.
Next up will be to get into Photoshop and sketch in some foliage to create the framing planned in the thumbnails.
