Last of Us – Lakeside Town

shaddy, shaddy safadi, conept art, last of us, the last of us, digital painting

An image from early in production where the focus was on getting the feeling of “beautiful decay.” We didn’t want the game to be all dark just because it had monsterous infected. We tried to include many areas of pleasant light to give the player a break from the darkness of some of the areas AND CHARACTERS… If you haven’t beat this game yet make sure you do! Joel gets REAL towards the end:) A How-To on this image coming soon.

    I take it these concept break downs aren’t happening since it’s been a long ass time. Really nice work, though. I would love to see those How-To’s as a student trying to get a better feel for concept art and digital painting.

    Your plein air paintings are so inspiring. You create such beautiful shapes that feel very spontaneous. The jewel like color accents really capture atmosphere and reflected light in an elegant way.

    I’ve watch your tutorials several times and have shared them with as many artist as I could. Your art and philosophy has made me a better artist. Thank you!
