Fan art or potential Last of Us 2 concept art? It’s actually fan art done by the game’s concept artist! Which means… well, it means it’s still fan art. Hopefully the fact that it’s an exceptional piece of artwork will distract you from the pit of despair that’s opened within you.
Sir Marek Okon is the artiste behind what he refers to as an “homage to one of the best games I’ve ever played.” He even has a cool background story to accompany the image of an older (and much more musical) Ellie.
Our favorite post-apocalypter has become somewhat of a myth thanks to far-reaching rumors of a girl immune to the fungal infection that’s wiped out our population. Because of this, a woman at the verge of hope and desperation hunts Ellie down, seeking a cure for her own loved ones.
Still braver and wiser beyond her years. Marek Okon’s fanart is incredible – I’d play it. pic.twitter.com/LhuQiWQiJb— Neil Druckmann (@Neil_Druckmann)May 6, 2014
Pretty mighty stamp of approval when the game’s creator gives the thumbs up to your concept.
