Cordyceps by alicexz Cordyceps by alicexz
Here we are! Another portrait inspired The Last of Us, of the beautiful Ellie. I was also inspired by the extremely creepy Cordyceps fungus (which in turn inspired the disease in the game) and tried to work in that motif. I've gotten wonderful comments from both Sony/Playstation and Naughty Dog, so I am really hoping to do artwork for all the amazing TLOU characters sometime. If you haven't checked out this game, I HIGHLY recommend it! It's on PS3 and will be coming to PS4 in a remastered edition as well.

Print is available here. Originally posted on my artblog! Painted in Adobe Photoshop on a Wacom Cintiq.

Cordyceps is creepy? It works wonders for many people and has helped me with chronic illnesses, including CFIDS. How is it "creepy"? It just caught me off guard to see the title. I take it every day and wish I could afford more so that it could be twice a day.

I don't usually like fan drawings of game characters, especially a game character that I respect/love/like, but you have done this perfectly. This is just beautiful.

It is beautiful. Her expression is so full of emotions, and i like how ethereal your work look. Unofrtunetly, because of my living arrangments I can only have PSV, but I was so excited when the Last of Us were coming out, and I hope that they would make it also on my platform.

This is so great! I loved the story of the game and I totally
didnt know that the disease was inspired by the Cordyceps fungus. 
This makes the story even more interesting for me. Totally creepy fungus. 
Great work!

Psst. I cordially invite you, alicexz, to the Last of Us movie. (And/Or a hell of a good playthrough if they make up another story plot.) Ellie was absolutely amazing, because of how innocent and violent she was. This game was absolutely amazing.
