5/31/13: Cool Stuff We Found This Week Friday 31 May, 2013
While searching for Mockingjay fan art on deviantART earlier in the week, we discovered a lot of incredible pieces of mockingjay fan art (you know…the bird, not the third book in the Hunger Games trilogy). Since we haven’t yet seen how the mockingjays will be depicted in the films (assuming we eventually see them), we thought it would be fun to take a look at how several talented fans have interpreted these symbolic birds.
Be sure to click on the images to see the full-size versions and visit the artists’ deviantART pages!
We were blown away by SchatzIna’s mockingjay sculpture! From her description of the piece: “Every single feather was handmade by me.” Wow!
Next up is this airbrush drawing of a mockingjay by adsta.
Then we have a mockingjay in a totally different style! This one is by dragonflame95, who says in her description of the illustration, “I don’t know what should be the actual color of a mockingjay, so I mixed some features of the other fan art I saw and the ones of the jay on the book cover.”
This next mockingjay is by Kabrial.
Lastly, we have a much more “realistic” interpretation of a mockingjay from LG-Young. “Illustrator and UArts professor Tim O’Brien has already done a wonderful job depicting mockingjays on the various book covers in a fetching, stylized way, but I thought it would be an interesting to share how I personally imagined them.”
Which mockingjay looks the most like your personal mental image of a mockingjay?
