The Last of Us Artwork is Tragically Beautiful

Three pieces of artwork for The Last of Us have snuck onto the internet.

The sweetest of the trio is a sketch depicting protagonists Joel and Ellie laughing, hinting at better times for the troubled duo. The other two pieces feature another look at the environment of the game, glimpses at what has become of the earth’s landscape during the game’s troubled scenario.

Naughty Dog has stated that the project is less of a survival game and more about a “love story” between a father- and daughter-figure. You can see this heartwarming companionship detailed in the artwork, after the cut.
