The Last Of Us- Winter by MikeDimayuga The Last Of Us- Winter by MikeDimayuga
here's the final piece of the story. i really wanted to try to capture the emotions, the mood and the drama.

there's so much more i can do/draw. so many more iconic, or funny, or exciting scenes that would be fun to do. maybe i'll do more, but this will be it for now.


part 1 (spring): mikedimayuga.deviantart.com/ar…

part 2 (summer): mikedimayuga.deviantart.com/ar…

part 3 (fall): mikedimayuga.deviantart.com/ar…

all the parts together: mikedimayuga.deviantart.com/ar…

Oh my God. The feels! Just ... the feels.

I cried so hard when he saved her and called her 'baby girl' so tenderly.

Thank you for this!

I don't think there should be a sequel. At least if they make one, it shouldn't feature Ellie and Joel because ... what more is there to tell?

Well I had an idea when I working on a fan-fiction about the last of us and it was a story about how Joel and Ellie end up getting held up in a revolution and the rebuilding of society by a faction known as Ronin and I'm still thinking on whether I should put in the part where Ellie starts getting feelings for one of them, but I don't think it's like Ellie to get swooned so easily. Still thinking :3

Whether you agree with Joel or not I don't think there's any other way the game could have ended that would have stayed true to Joel's character. Fantastic.

This piece is just so damn beautiful ans stylish artwork. I love the patterns, the shading and the style. All in all it's just frickin' perfect, and full of feeling expressed in a simple, beautiful way that shows Joel's feelings about Ellie without overdoing it.
Considering how attached you get to these characters while playing, this is too much feels Pikachu Crying Plz

No, they're not. Removing her brain would have served no purpose at all. They would have killed her for nothing. Not like they gave a damn though. You saw how they were. 

Here's a fun fact. That infection actually does exist. It happens in ant colonies. Looks, behaves, and spreads the exact same way. Give it a look. :D

They'd have had a possible mutated strain or more likely she was naturally immune, many are too HIV and natural selection is making them common... one would just need her genes and that can come from bone marrow... very easy too get.
I'd spend my energy trying too unite the people of the world again by re-establishing links, most aren't in it just for themselves (well out of the US, how many in the game react is VERY American) but for others as well, and less starvation and the like if links were remade.

Yeah I know, it's a mutated strain, probably a bio-weapon that went wild.

Ayep, I'm an American girl born and raised. Ok, here's how I see things. Joel carried the burden of his daughter's death for 20 years. 20 years he mourned her. Then along comes Ellie. This remarkable little girl who worms her way into his heart whether he likes it or not. Joel let's go of the past, and embraces his bond with Ellie, and takes her in as his own. True she's not born his daughter, but he loves her like she was. Now in comes Marlene, and her Fireflies. After the utter hell they went through to get her to that damned hospital, Ellie's taken away from him, Joel is beaten and treated like a prisoner, and he's told Ellie has to die, and they'd kill him if he got in the way. If you remember listening to the scientist's audio logs you find in the university, you'll see the real motive. The fireflies never had any intention of creating a vaccine. Ellie was nothing more than just another "Specimen" they could play doctor on. And Joel is just supposed to accept that, and let them end the life of this amazing girl on the pretense of engineering a vaccine. From a VIRUS. Oh ok. No, I think not. Joel was certainly more than justified in his actions. He wiped out the fireflies, rescued his baby girl and did away with anyone who might come after her. Having daughters myself I can damn sure tell you what I would do. 

However, my opinion on the matter doesn't seem to be a popular one. x]
