Deep in the meadow, under the willow

Alright, so here is an interesting idea of mine. I am going to badly draw one of my favourite scenes from a book and add them to my blog.... the result is here:

Here is the place where I love you.

That scene is from Suzanne Collin's "The Hunger Games". This has become one of my favourite series as I have read and re-read the books. This scene has always stuck with me because it is a time that Katniss' true character starts to shine out.
Rue has just been caught in a net and then struck by a spear. When Katniss gets to her, Rue's dying request is that Katniss sing for her. I find this scene to be very touching.

The small mockingjay in the lower right hand corner represents all of the mocking jays that take up Katniss' song to Rue after she finishes singing.

So. How bad was that drawing? Actually, that sadly is one of my better ones. I just cannot seem to draw people!

What are some of your favourite scenes? Maybe I'll try and draw some of those!
