New Last of Us Fan Art Takes Players on an Intense Journey of Emotions

“Swear to me that everything that you said about the Fireflies is true.” - Ellie

Nine months after The Last of Us Part 2 released and almost eight years since The Last of Us dropped onto the PS3, fans still find themselves in debates and casual conversations regarding the game.

Although it pains some to see, the hard-hitting Naughty Dog titles certainly won’t be going anywhere anytime soon and for good reasons, too. Nestled within the TLOU community are some of the most incredible artists whose work not only astounds us but also inspires emotion. As we delve back into The Last of Us fanart vault, a brilliant story created using emotional scenes from The Last of Us and Part 2 collide in the most wonderful way.

About the Artist

David who goes by the Twitter tag IconicNephilim is a familiar face within The Last of Us community and beyond. You may remember their incredible artwork in pieces that include Ellie and Abby’s cycle of violence, fan art of Joel and Ellie reimaged with the faces of Bella Ramsey and Pedro Pascal, and a beautiful poster of the game’s characters in the style of Ellie’s journal. With 10.4k followers on Twitter, David has become one of the most recognized and appreciated Last of Us artists around. One of the reasons for this is due to the emotion and depth they put into their work, not to mention how extremely talented they are at their craft.

The Work

As you can tell from all the links above, we are big fans of David’s and love to see what they come up with next. Thankfully, we never have to wait too long. This time, David has illustrated scenes from both The Last of Us and The Last of Us Part 2 called “The Journey” which takes fans through different hard-hitting areas of the game. From The Firefly Lab and the Bus Depot to Lakeside Resort and beyond, David encapsulates those moments again through art and they’re just as difficult to process as when we saw them in the game.


Where can I see more of this artwork?

You can give David a follow on Twitter to keep up to date with all of their amazing art pieces. If Twitter isn’t your thing, you can also view all of David’s work on Instagram.

As of now, no release date for the HBO series has been set for The Last of Us but you can bet your butt that once we do, we’ll have all the news here at DualShockers. The Last of Us is available on the PS4 or you can jump straight into The Last of Us Part 2 which is available exclusively on PS4.
