#CreationDay – A year ago, The Last of Us Part II released; regardless of the controversy over this game, I’ve never felt more emotionally moved by a source of media in my lifetime – what a heartbreaking, touching, and violent journey about love, humanity, and the toxicity of hatred and war. It’s a game that forces you out of your comfort zone, and hits you in the gut, and hey, that’s what life is all about.
Ellie is still one of my favorite all time video game characters; I have an alternation of her fern and moth tattoo on my shoulder in commemoration of this beautiful game series. Regardless of how you feel about TLOU2, I hope you enjoy my portrait of Ellie. Also, this is a great piece for pride month, considering we all know Ellie is an openly gay main character in a huge piece of media; it’s an awesome form of representation!
