This is the first picture of a personnal project.
Illustrating the story : " The most dangerous game".
So, this is MR. Rainsford, the tiger hunter.
I don't have a publisher for this project yet.
I love the story and the movie too.
I draw first with pencil and then digital Paint :)

Mais ca m'amuse beaucoup.

Voici donc Mr. Rainsford, chasseur de fauve
et célèbre pour avoir tuer le fameux tigre blanc du Bengal.

yup! i noticed that while he's on the boat, after he's talked to Whitney and is sitting on the deck, and before an abrupt sound startles him, the night is described as very dark, and it says 'Rainsford, reclining in a steamer chair, indolently puffed on his favorite brier. The sensuous drowsiness of the night was on him." It's so dark," he thought, "that I could sleep without closing my eyes; the night would be my eyelids--' An abrupt sound startled him."

it's possible that he fell asleep before the sound startled him and he actually dreamed the sound, and everything after it.

also, at the very end, it looks like this:

"The general made one of his deepest bows. "I see," he said. "Splendid! One of us is to furnish a repast for the hounds. The other will sleep in this very excellent bed. On guard, Rainsford." . . .

He had never slept in a better bed, Rainsford decided."

in most printings of the story, at least in the one I read in class, there is a huge space between the last full paragraph and the last sentence. This suggest that Rainsford had just woken up.

I don't know, it's just something i noticed.

I know this comment is from a year ago, but I'd like to point out that Rainsford didn't really dream the whole thing.

The "he had never slept in a better bed" thing implied to me that he had faught Zaroff and threw him out the window of the chateau. I don't know. I read it in class and my teacher says Zaroff died and Rainsford won, not that he'd dreamt the entire thing.

Also, keep in mind the fact that if the whole thing had been a dream, he probably would have fallen asleep while sitting down on the yacht, so he wouldn't have been sleeping in a bed.

I might be wrong, but that's my theory.

I comment on old posts all the time, don't worry :)

And your theory is probably more credible than mine, to be honest. My English teacher just threw the "just a dream" theory at us and I thought it was interesting. That part about him falling asleep on the yacht is also a good point.

Yeah but bot of us have completely different theories based on the fact that our English teachers shared their beleifs to the class. I guess the only person who knows is Richard Connel.
