The Last of Us HBO Fan Art – Marvel Artist Takes On Bella Ramsey and Pedro Pascal
Alice Zhang brings her A-game in this beautiful sketch of Joel and Ellie.
Since we saw the arrival of Bella Ramsey and Pedro Pascal as Joel and Ellie in HBO’s The Last of Us series, the influx of fan art from extremely talented artists has been overwhelming but fantastic to see. Artists from around the world have been eagerly putting their masterpieces together to showcase their very own interpretation of the duo. To carry on this trend, we have another piece to bring to the table today by the well-known Marvel and Disney illustrator, Alice X. Zhang.
Alice X. Zhang is a Chinese-American illustrator and fine artist known for her expressive, emotive portraits. She graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design with a B.F.A, and began a full-time freelance career in the film, comic, and gaming industries. Her clients throughout the years have included Marvel, BBC Worldwide (Doctor Who, Sherlock), DC Films, Lucasfilm (Star Wars), Naughty Dog (The Last of Us Part 2), Team Liquid, and Disney Books (Powers of a Girl), as well as two solo exhibitions at Bottleneck Gallery in Brooklyn, New York. If you’re a fan of The Last of Us or Marvel artwork, then really Alice needs no introduction as her incredible paintings have been showcased all over social media so you have probably already spotted some.

Zhang has done an incredible job, as always, with her take on Bella Ramsey as Ellie and Pedro Pascal as Joel. I think what makes it stand out the most, is the use of color Zhang uses and how she’s able to catch the light so perfectly on Joel and Ellie’s face. Not to mention how perfect the little details are from Ellie’s freckles to Joel’s frown lines. This is certainly one to hang on the wall. As with all of Zhang’s work, you can purchase them from her store so hopefully, this will be available to buy soon. In the meantime, take a browse and then probably walk away broke.
The Last of Us and The Last of Us Part 2 are available on the PS4 (PS5 hopefully soon).
