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 and...you 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?

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

Yeah, I know and maybe it's a good decision, that book was LOADED with plot and information. I read all of the books as well and when I got down to watching Catching Fire...my mind was blown. Jennifer's acting was amazing, she just blazed through the whole thing, especially the ending still gives me shivers thinking about it. I'm really looking forward to the next movie :meow:

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:

Yeah, I know. I shouldn't have drawn the shirt OVER the belt, that's why his hips look so big :). Could that be it?
And no problem, I like it when people give me proper critique, it's the only way to get better after all :meow:
So thank you! :hug:

something... But then I'm be screaming for like 5 minutes and rip off my friends shoulder...
