Day 16 - Mantiss Everdeen

Mantiss Everdeen draws an arrow from her quiver
Apologies to Jennifer Lawrence

Well, I already went there with the Bug Files, so today I saw the final installment of the Hunger Games series with my sister and thought, what kind of insect would Katniss be? A mantis seemed the best choice, not just for the convenient pun, but because a mantis is a fierce warrior insect that is not too fond of the limelight; however, once in it does not always shy away.

This is a pencil drawing to which I added the painted-looking background via a photo editor.

As stated in the Bug Files post, adding hair to something not normally having hair is difficult. There are probably good reasons mantids do not have flowing locks...
