I wanted to show one of the many differences in Shelby and Joel’s personalities. Joel has no trouble whatsoever gunning down his opponents while Shelby is reluctant to harm anyone. Throughout the story Joel will advise Shelby to stop holding back in order to survive but it’s up to her whether or not she will listen and adapt to her new situation. (I’ve created a couple artworks like this before, once in 2019 and before that in 2012 but this is, hopefully, the final version with the finalized characters.) Oh yeah… the gunfire coming from Joel’s gun is not postwork, that’s a prop I put together with some materials I created to mimic gunfire. It’s a niftly little prop and quite the timesaver!

I rendered this scene in Superfly with depth of field on and three lights (a point light standing in as the “sun” plus two area lights working as rim lights) in addition to the skydome working as an ambient dome light. In postwork, I used a few Photoshop actions along with several adjustment layers and a gradient overlay to achieve the final look. I then added a thin black border and the artwork was completed.
