In the midst of my art block I've actually found that stepping away from my usual style is a great way to keep creativity flowing, even if it's not how you'd normally portray something. I was kind of surprised by the positive reaction from the last drawing, so here's one more I made today of Katniss & Prim.

Don't worry... I'll be back to the normal stuff soon I hope! This is just to pass the art block and is probably the last sketch of this type I'll be posting here. Again, please feel free to crit :) I could use the advice whilst I'm stuck in a rut.

I find it really amazing how artists with a minimalistic style can break down a scene and a bunch of emotions into just a few sweeping strokes. Everything has to matter and mean something, it's not like you can jam in all these tiny details. And I think that's what makes it so amazing.

I love it, I also really love the hunger games and I think you created a very interesting painting - and I most say that that drawing style, with almost no lines gives a very good and clear image of the face,hair and body.
Amazing work, keep it up! QwQ

I just can't get over this 'minimalist' type of things you've made. every single one of them is just... wonderful! And I'm sure you can do better just because there's always room to improve, but to me, this style suits you perfectly, even if just for some scribbles to get you out of an art block. I love this so much!

This is really quite beautiful, with or without the context of character identities. It could be Katniss and Prim, or any two sisters.
