Left Behind by Hakaishi Left Behind by Hakaishi
When everything goes to hell and you allow just a tiny, fleeting moment to yourself; right before everything goes even further into the pit.

I took the liberty to set this in the winter, but before the chapter in the game starts. For the feels. I also included Callus, because I like to imagine he'd acted as a pillar of support for Ellie through the hard times she had to go through.

I've wanted to draw The Last Of Us fanart ever since I finished it for the first time last year, but I never got around to actually do it, and it wasn't just because I was so insecure about drawing people. BUT, that has been fixed now. It started as a random impulse to just go and draw Ellie after I had this really melancholic dream about her and the game, after playing the DLC Left Behind, and so it happened. And from a random sketch of her face it grew bigger and bigger and suddenly there was shading and wow colors. Also background what the hell.

So. Uh. ENJOY THE TEARS.

TLOU, Ellie and Callus belong to Naughty Dog, art is mine!

Left Behind by Hakaishi captures a lot of emotion in one scene of this character's existence. ( Suggested by Berneri and Featured by Lyricanna )

I took one tiny glance at this artwork and it screamed The Last of Us.
This just summed up all the time we skipped in the game, and such a beautiful scene!

It's amazing, isn't it? The bond between a person and a horse.

a yo how tall you think she is?
Reply
:iconhakaishi:
Hakaishi Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2014
I'd say she's quite short? I tried to reference her height with Callus from the game itself. And noticed I should've made her a bit shorter/Callus a bit taller only after I'd already merged all the layers and was rendering it, so it was too late and I was too lazy to try to fix it anymore lmao The horse's head is also supposed to be bent downwards a bit and that makes Ellie look even taller, I guess. My bad.

I wanted to let you know that I appreciate the conveyance of both strength and fraility in this painting. And you can kinda tell from the painting alone that it's not simply fear of the winter that has her looking down, although that is what first leaps to mind. But the expression on her face is more of sadness, of even grief. Like she has lost someone, whether she broke off a relationship and regrets it, or whether someone she depended upon left her. Thank you.

Aw man, this is like the best comment I've received yet. Like, you hit directly the point I was trying to convey through this drawing, her face especially, and because I'm not very good at drawing facial expressions that actually do give off certain feelings the person is feeling, it makes me really, very happy to hear that what you saw in it was exactly what I was trying to show. So, for that, a giant thank you for the comment! Greatly appreciated.
