I loved so much The Last of Us game, the story is very deep and the emotional evolution of Ellie and her relationship with Joel is very touching.
I created this piece for a challenge of the webstite It´s Art ( www.itsartmag.com/
) and I was very lucky to win the first prize, there were a lot of great entries as well.
Im very happy with the result, specially because the detail it´s only hinted and all the piece and texture where made with basic brushes and playing with the eraser.I tried to capture the feeling and emotion of Ellie instead of just copy her appearance from the game.Done in Photoshop Cs6 in about 20 hours, a couple of references used for the costume and phisical features but very vaguely.
UPDATE 2015: Reupload the file for a updated one because the previous pic was too dark and grainy,resolution boosted too.
