.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."

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".

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.

It would refer back to how she could glide along trees like a bird.

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.

That's a really good drawing. If you would, would you draw me a picture of a girl with curly red hair, who is beautiful, and is about 16 years old. I would really appreciate it!!!
