.Rue by IsaiahStephens .Rue by IsaiahStephens
"I'm very hard to catch. And if they can't catch me, they can't kill me. So don't count me out."
―Rue


By far my most requested hunger games character.
Here she is.....the lovely Rue!

Colored version:



Rue was such a beautifully written character. even though she wasn't in the book, or series, as long as some of the other characters, she still left a lasting impression in my mind. Katniss' relationship with Rue was one of the only things that made me like Katniss. I thought that for most of the books she was mostly a brat. i felt like the movie rushed their relationship to the point that you didn't really understand it. which makes me happy that i read the book :)


Anyway!!! I hope you like her.

can i just say how shocked i was that people were genuinely upset that rue was portrayed by an African American girl. here is katniss' description of rue word for word:

"And most hauntingly, a twelve-year-old girl from District 11. She has dark brown skin and eyes, but other than that, she's very like Prim in size and demeanor."
―Katniss Everdeen


Even I had a friend tell me that they envisioned Rue as a TAN girl. i was just like ". . . . . . .umm okay".

It's sort of like when people got upset because Cho Chang from "Harry Potter" was played by a British-Chinese girl. Come on, people...
I love this drawing.

Really? People were actually angry that Rue was dark-skinned? That was exactly how I imagined her when I read the book series, and was nothing but delighted and sad when she appeared in the movie!
She's...just SO adorable... I've always loved Rue! Heart Love

I'm suprised you put a flower in her hair. I know Katniss did it for her death, but personally, I think a small arangement of feathers would have suited Rue better.

This is so amazing. It is so so so so lovely. I was really confused about others being upset as well. I always imagined Rue looking just like this. Great job.

I like your version of rue because like in the book her complection was dark. Unlike in the movie of course. She looks so sweet.

Some people are just racist. It wouldn't surprise me if they believed everyone in Africa was just a bit tanned.

I agree with your description of Rue so much! While their relationship was developing, I thought "yes, finally a bit of Katniss' humanity emerges!" because up until that point, I didn't like her much. Outside the games she was quite bratty (her behaviour was pretty strange for someone being sent to their death for entertainment, less trauma and fear, more childish and stroppy) and inside the games she seemed sociopathic. But then while she was with Rue, she was looking after her and getting to know her, and the bit with the flowers just broke my heart. <3

Anyway, I'm rambling. This picture is beautiful, really captures Rue's 'innocence'. She looks so cute, you just want to give her a big hug! :meow:
