"I need you to know that I’ve kept my promise all these years…despite everything that I was in charge of, I looked after her. I would’ve done anything for her, and at times…Here’s a chance to save us…all of us…" -Marlene recording.
The Last of Us is hands down one of my favorite games of all time. I had to lay down for a few days after it was done. I thought of this idea of Marlene looking after Ellie when she was a toddler, so I decided to draw it. I need to draw more Last of Us fan art!  :)
