The Last of Us Part II Fan Poster Illustrates Ellie and Abby's Cycle of Violence

Illustrator Iconic Nephilim shared a fan poster for The Last of Us Part II that calls back to its central theme of "the cycle of violence."

With its release this past June, The Last of Us Part II took fans of the series on an emotional and gut-wrenching journey not only of hate, but of empathy and love. As an exploration of the consequences of fate and actions by its lead characters, one of the main themes of The Last of Us Part II was the “cycle of violence” that results from hate and seeking revenge, as we saw through the stories of its main characters. With that in mind, one illustrator crafted a poster that looks more directly at this theme to create an interesting and detailed piece of The Last of Us-themed fan art.

Illustrator and designer Iconic Nephilim (Twitter) shared his fan-made poster for The Last of Us Part II called “The Cycle of Violence,” which highlights one of the core themes from the game in an intriguing way. As you can see from the images below, the poster is meant to reflect the parallel journeys that TLOU Part II‘s main characters, Ellie and Abby, take in order to seek revenge alongside their companions Jesse, Dina, Lev, and Yara.

In addition to the high-res images, he also shared a behind-the-scenes look of the work that went into making The Last of Us Part II poster. You can check out the full video below to see it being made in real-time:

Since its release, The Last of Us Part II has seen a number of incredible pieces of fan art and other creations from across Twitter and more. Another fan made their own interpretation of a The Last of Us Part II movie-style poster featuring the game’s diverse cast, along with these impressive recreations of the game’s collectible trading cards. You can also happen to catch Dina’s voice actress Shannon Woodward on her brand new Twitch channel where she is now starting to stream games.

The Last of Us Part II is available now exclusively on PS4.
