Joel is a character from the video game known as “The Last of Us”, created by Naughty Dog. I had always wanted to work with a painting in pure black and white, and seen this as an opportunity to do so. Joel is a character was such hardship and background, evident not only in is demeanor, but face alone.
This painting was done during a 4 hour session using a graphics tablet and Photoshop.
