The Last of Us - Winter by bladesfire The Last of Us - Winter by bladesfire
Just finished playing The Last of Us. As soon as the game hit Winter I knew I had to draw this picture. This part was so good, and intense, and emotional.

Inspired by the Matterhorn poster from Disneyland, though it ended up being a rather different style.

WIPs are here!

I wish I could play that game too...

The atmosphere here is great. And the style is really interesting too, I'm curious, was there any color blending at all?

If you ever get the chance you should! And definitely play it rather than watch it being played if you can, a lot of the story and emotions are in the gameplay.

Thanks! Trying to capture the atmosphere was the fun of this piece!
There was no color blending in this, just solid colors and a solid brush with no opacity, as I was trying to go for a graphic poster style. I did put a paper texture over it to give it a more gritty look though.

Unfortunately, I don't have any consoles, and my computer is just not good enough for modern games Crying 

No blending sounds really difficult =O

For some reason, this style is associated with depressing things in my head, but that works well for this one XD

Thank you! The game is a lot like that as well, gorgeous and a little unsettling. :)
