Grain…yup grain. So I realize that most of the District looks are very extreme. Nothing you would wear out day to day. With grain I wanted to do something less extreme. I didn’t want this to just be an experiment of what can I glue to my face. So short of buying some bits of oatmeal and sticking it to my face (I thought about it) this is the look I came up with. I wanted to use my loose pigments for this look and I actually really liked them. I thought I was going to hate them and that I was going to have bits of shadow everywhere but they stuck to the pencils fairly nicely. If you look at the crease of my eyes then you’ll see a hint of a red color. Originally I had used a red from the 120 palette and I hated how it looked. So I just placed Wild over it and it looked much better. The first face picture is with a flash and natural light so that’s why I look like a ghost. The 2nd face is with just flash.
Enjoy! Now I know my description kinda stinks so you can read more about it on the Hunger Games Wiki.

Oh my! I need to update more often! I had all the images done but I was procrastinating on posting anything, so I apologize for that! Anyway, District Eight in Textiles. They are responsible for making the textiles that other districts clothe themselves in and for the clothes that the Capitol Wears. Peacekeeper uniforms are their main export however. I wanted something that really represented the making of clothes but when I tried fabric pieces they looked really off. I tried using some netting but it didn’t show up either. So I decided on buttons! The white buttons represent the white color of the Peacekeeper uniforms and the colored sequins are for the very colorful clothes the citizens of the Capitol wear. Note to self; when glueing sequins to your face, the brighter ones pinks and oranges will leave some coloring staining behind.
Enjoy! Now I know my description kinda stinks so you can read more about it on the Hunger Games Wiki.

As soon as I was done with Transportation I knew exactly what I wanted to do for District Seven and Lumber! Have you ever had a moment when you were doing what you normally do and you feel less than adequate? Well after District Six I was feeling like I really couldn’t do anything and wanted to stop. I’m so glad I didn’t! I don’t think I’m amazing or anything like that but I do think that this is exactly what I wanted this to look like. I added the small hint of green under my eyes after I took a few pictures because even though District Seven mainly handles lumber, one of the past winners, Johanna Mason, states that pine needles remind her of home. So I figured there have to be some actual trees left, right?

Transportation. O.o? That was the face I made when I thought of transportation. So I looked at the seal and noticed the monorail/train. So I was going to do this red and white combo ala some theme park type of monorail but then I though well the train goes to the Capitol and they would never allow something that garish-looking going through their home areas. So I stuck with colors that were a tad more muted and more functional. I tried to look at screen captures but none of them showed the side of the train, just the top. The first set of pictures the dark color on my eyes was much smaller because I was going to do more of a mask looking thing but as I started going with the Salt Water color it looked too weird so I just settled for some silver accents. In the latter pictures I winged the top of the eye out a bit more. Enjoy! This marks the halfway point! YAY! PS. Sorry this took so long to finally post, I did most of these a few days ago but I have been under the weather so getting on the computer and editing anything takes more energy right now.

District Five supplies all of Panem with power. They provide the majority of it to the Capitol, but they still generate it for all districts to use. Although sometimes (like in lower districts like 9-12) the power does go off from time to time. Now when I thought of power I was at a lost. I was going to do the 3 oval symbol but when I sketched it out it looked really bad. Then I bought these little scrapbooking add ons that look like lanterns. They just looked like little tridents when I put them up to my eyes. Then I remembered Foxface. Foxface was the female tribute from District 5 in The Hunger Games. So I went off of my norm and pulled some coloring from a fox and used that. I still added some extras to make it fit in with my other looks . The latter pictures are some of the more ‘artsy’ ones. Now I know my description kinda stinks so you can read more about it on the Hunger Games Wiki.
