This work very much captures the contrast between the darkness of the Katniss' world and the hope she brought by fighting in the Hunger Games. I like the way you managed to work all the darkness, and rendered that with graphite. That is difficult; to manage so much blackness. Your detail of her hair, coat zipper and shirt is stunning.

I really like the way her face "appears" from the darkness. She has a stern, straight-forward facial expression, which presents her as the hero, prepared to face her fears and the evil, whatever the cost. The "vision" is clear: that she has been given a task and she awaits to face it.

When it comes to originality, it looks like a picture from a movie poster. I don't know if that's where you got the image, but you certainly took what you could and made it your own. Your technique, which is superb, has brought an amazing rendering. I see no problem with your technique. You are an extremely talented artist, and the almost "photographic" realism, which I respect you for. Few artists can achieve your level of skill, and you've done an amazing job. You have a full range of value, which makes Katniss' face "pop". She is like a mysterious figure from the darkness.

The impact of the light breaking the darkness is very effective. You've managed to cleverly capture every detail, including the "spark" in her eyes. You've created a beautiful image of a vibrant and alive young heroine who won't be silenced, and fans of the Hunger Games are pleased I'm sure. Excellent work, please keep it up!

Unbelieveable, Magnificent, Stunning. That's all I can say, but it's a critique, so I must go in depth. :P

I know from first hand experience how hard it is to do a background like that, the total blackness. Honestly, I can't do that, it's way beyond my ability.

The beauty in this picture is breathtaking. I love it, the shadowing on her face is perfect, I'd say flawless. I opened up this picture, because honestly, I was questioning whether or not it was a photograph.

And her shirt, the detail put into that edge is amazing, I am in complete awe. The little bit of light on it makes it look like a picture, not even a drawing. It looks completely real.

I am writing this, and I keep looking up at this, and here's what I'm thinking "How can I describe this? It's amazing, the work speaks for itself." As the saying goes "A picture is worth a 1000 words.". I'm trying my best. But saying what I love about this, what I think of it, is quite near impossible.

All in all this photo, it wonderful. I can't find flaws. I have never given a complete five star rating before.. Mind you this is only my second critique. But still, I love it! Keep up the good work!

Brilliant. i especially like the way the shading is so smooth, there is never any indication which way the pencil was going, which i cannot say for some of your other drawings. but how was the background done? you simply shaded it with a pencil? (then wouldn't your hands get extremely dirty xD)
*dies from sheer blinding awesomeness*
