Leo Valdez - Hephaestus by Kat-Anni Leo Valdez - Hephaestus by Kat-Anni
SPOILER! Read the book gods-damn it!

And here's Leo! :meow: For now, this is the last character from the series. I know, you want Silena and Beckendorf and Travis and Connor know what I mean. But hey, for now, the people who watch me are spammed enough :XD: I think some of you already are bored of this and I apologize for that. But I wanted to get it done and voilà, we're done now. Celebrate with me! :boogie:
On to the other pictures I still have to do :XD:

About Leo: He's the cool one. No, the hot one. It's complicated :XD:. Well, anyway. I tried to make him look Latino-like. I think I failed. What do you think? He's also supposed to look self-concious, like he acts to be. Well, he's not. But you have to read the book to know why. The pose didn't turn out as "cool" as I wanted it to but..I wanted him to look hot and still not...goofy. So I tried out this one. Btw, I love those sketches of Razuri-chan, check them out. Really awesome style :)
Btw, the background is also red, like with Clarisse, yes. But Clarisse is red because of the blood (her father being god of war) and Leo is read because of the fire (his father being god of forges and fire) so I tried to make it more orange-like ^^; Does it show? :D

Really hope you like it! :meow:
Love ya ~:heart: :tighthug:

Edit: I changed the shadow of his arm on the torso. The fire should've changed the shadow, so I manipulated it so that it'd fit :XD:

I like it very much, and I am so happy you did Leo. I only have a few real complaints. I thought the pockets of the toolbelt were sopposed to be larger, cause in the Lost Hero, he pulled out a 3 pound hammer, and the hammer couldn't fit in those pockets. And his smile, I think you should have done it like a really impish grin, like this :D. And doesn't he wear an army fatigue jacket? I'm just saying. I like the way you made his eyebrows, unturned and mischievious. I think you captured him quite beautifully, Kat Anni.
What do you think?

how do you think about the hungergames. :)
Kat-Anni Jan 23, 2014  Student Digital Artist
I love them! Well, I love the books. And I loved the first movie, didn't see Catching Fire yet, unfortunately. 
What about you? ^^

ive read all the books and seen both movies. the 2nd movie is AMAZING, you should watch it. did you know that theyre splitting mockingjay into 2 parts? the 1st part is to be released this year.
In my opinion, if you  did art of the hunger games it would be absolutely wonderful. 
sincerely Sam
it's not even funny how much i love Leo

He, ah, looks like a girl. Leo is complaining, you may want to change that.

Other then that, great!
Kat-Anni Nov 1, 2013  Student Digital Artist
It's because the tool belt is under the shirt and his hip looks bigger because of that ^^
I might change it but I'd rather make a whole new pic, this is really old already xP
Thanks anyway!! :hug:
