Check out this new piece of concept art from Naughty Dog's The Last of Us Part II.
I feel a bit bad for the motion capture actress. Her nose is big, but it's not as huge and cartoony as the artist drew it lol!
Thats not true in the slightest. Her nose is not large.
Don't get me wrong, I didn't mean it in a bad way. Her nose is bigger than most 'typical' actresses but it's not unflattering or anything (not like the concept art)... https://images.everyeye.it/...
That comment on Twitter though! Someone posted something about the relationship which I guess got deleted. But anyways, someone responded "It's 2019." To that, someone responded "It's 2019, but that nose is in 2032." and posted this image: https://pbs.twimg.com/media... XD XD I'm dyin' here! Lmfao
The actress was likely not cast at the time this drawing was done, or the concept artist may not have been told who it was, because in this picture she is taller then Ellie, but in the game screenshot she is shorter, and height is something most artists do not get to messed up. This type of nose shape is hard to draw right. It's likely he got a brief write up for how the character should look, which may include "a more pronounced nose" as the description and he has nothing else to go on, and he did it as a sketch which means he likely did it in about 30 minutes or so.
@Pasta_spice You are wrong. The link you shared is not an image of the actress. I don’t know why I have so many dislikes on my initial comment. The actress who plays the character “Dina” is Shannon Woodward. Her nose is rather small, so again: that is not true in the slightest. Her nose (the voice actress) is not large. https://m.imdb.com/name/nm0...
@Thatgrammar: The mo-cap and voice actress is Shannon Woodward. The face model was Cascina Caradonna. She discusses it in a YouTube video here... https://www.youtube.com/wat...
I feel a bit ashamed to be part of the community where so many likes to mock others based on something you'd expect to hear from junior high bullying from the pretentious crowd who most of us probably held much disdain for in middle school. The replies on twitter, and many on here are really not making themselves look good. It's a nose. Some people have bigger noses. Some of them aren't a "perfect shape".
@pasta_spice Great. I was replying to your initial post when you stated “I feel a bit bad for the motion capture actress. Her nose is big, but it’s not as huge and cartoony as the artist drew it lol!” The motion capture actress was not used as the face model. So I was just going off of your initial post. You were stating something incorrect, so I disagreed in my reply.
If that nose represents how long we have to wait for the game to release we're doomed
Lol, nice one. How long do we have to wait? Nobody nose!
Hahaha for real
In a dystopian future where earth's population is but a fraction of what it once was, beggars cant be choosers lol.
Echo echo echo
Reminds me of the flying nose from Dr. Sulfur’s Night Lab game.
That game will be a hard pass for me on ps5. Way to much love 🚬
There's always Crackdown 3 for you. It has no love. From anyone.
I just spat out my Cheerios laughing so hard.
You went to far
bwhahahahahahaha.... omfg i almost choked on my food when readying this
Fan boy for Life hahaa i don’t even have a Xbox but it’s ok if you need to defend a game more than you would ur girlfriend 🤣 what would You know about Than. Have fun playing tlou in you mother basement 😘

The last of Beak? God of Beaks? Metal Beak Solid? Take your pick

Well considering the premise of the story, Ellie is enraged on a quest for revenge... The Last of Us 2: The Smell of Vengeance? You thought the Clickers were bad? Just wait until Ellie unleashes the Sniffers on her enemies. She blows everything she nose about humanity out the window. It's up to Joel to help scratch her itch for slaughter.
Blow Hard with a Vengeance "Yippie ki yay, Motherhonker."

Fuck this SJW lesbian shit, I'd rather play Duke Nukem.
Just having lesbians means it's SJW? What kind of logic is that? Ellie was always gay.
No I think what this trying to say is he wants to fuck that lesbians because he is aroused by it.
When it only bends towards females being gay it comes a bit off as pandering. Wonder if naughty dog has the guts to have two male characters who are the main characters that are gay in their next game? I've never seen it, unless its a player choice or a side character.
Ellie was gay...AFTER the DLC came out that MADE her gay. And to act like this is the only thing ND has done that's "SJW" is disingenuous. They are THE SJW developer right now and according to it's employee's if you don't conform to their standards you can apparently fuck off and die. ND really isn't going down a good road with all this..
@gamer7804, I'm more than fine with Ellie being a Lesbian and having a partner. But if any developer EVER puts 2 gay guys in there and they kiss like that, I'm done. I'm out. Won't buy it ever. Lets hope ND never do that
it's normalizing homosexuality.
Someone put it best in the twitter responses....We know more about the sexuality of these two characters, than we know about the story. I think that sums it up nicely, because when I personally think of TLOU, the sexual preference of the characters is not the first thing that comes to mind. In fact, its such a non-factor that I really was never interested. Joel was a heterosexual in the first game, and his relationship with Tess wasn't thrown in our faces. In fact, it was not even really explicitely stated or barely hinted at that they were in an intimate relationship. It wasn't important. Maybe it's important to Ellie's character, as she's young, and maybe she grows in some way, as she will have different motivations than Joel did in the first game. But, the kissing trailer doesn't give enough context to really make a judgement if it's going to be meaningful, and it just gets a lot more attention than one's relationship status would get in comparison to other aspects of the game which are probably more important to people. I guess I'm trying to say it's just a distraction.
@rainslacker "We know more about the sexuality of these two characters, than we know about the story." And that's a fair criticism. I agree, after this long we should know more about the plot. But to dismiss Ellie's sexuality as "SJW lesbian shit"? I think that's a bit much.
You are not the target audience. The game caters to SJWs. Play Doom Eternal if you want a Christian friendly game.
I feel the same way. Pass for me.
I hear you my favorite but they not gonna pushing this agenda on us no time soon
Loved the first game, but it really feels like they are putting too much focus on the lesbian aspect. (Also would have much preferred to learn about this love interest in the game, and not in this front and center marketing.)
Neil Druckman does love to virtue signal. My least favorite aspect of ND
Which is a shame because he's a fantastic story teller otherwise! It's not even that they are lesbians, it's that we have no idea who the other girl is and what she's like, so we don't care about her. At this point, before we have played the game, all we care about is Joel and Ellie yet Ellies relationship with that girl (sorry don't remember her name) was quite a big focus and was all just a bit meh. The other side of the trailer though looked so frickin good and I can't wait to play this. It's gonna be so brutal. And if in game the new girl gets developed properly and becomes someone to care about, then great, it's a win all round :D
I personally don't care about the other girl. Don't know who she is, or how she's related to the story. She's probably going to turn out to be evil. All I know about her is that Ellie is pining over her, even though the girl apparently broke her heart, by possibly cheating on her or some other unknown thing. Then Ellie just is all cool again when she gets some attention from her. Kind of makes Ellie co-dependent, which may be keeping a bit with her character from the first game, but seems to go against what else was shown in the same trailer. Don't really care if they're lesbians or not. I'd feel the same way if it was a guy she was kissing. The lesbian aspect just seemed rather odd to make a focal point of the first story reveal trailer, and seemed to be too much to throw on the audience given the nature of such things today, and the fact its really not meaningful to what people expect from the story, so seemed to be more about shock value.
I completely agree with you and ninsigma. The last of us is for me personally all about Ellie en Joel. The first trailer really got me an I was all onboard for part 2. But the second trailer really put the focus on characters I did not now (care about). And how technically advanced the game will be and how dark the tone is. So I myself am a little less exited of what to come. Like I said, for me it is all about Ellie and Joel, and not how brutal and realistic the world around is. I love the first game and its storry so much i cant help but worry, that story and the focus is on the right places. Especially in the agenda driven world we live in right now. (Feel the need to say that i love Ellies character and have no problem whatsoever that she’s gay. I simply dont think smeonse sexuality is something defining or important in A game. It only becoms an issue for me if I get the feeling that it is set up in a way to push certain beliefs or views on to others. Let games be games, and our worldly issues out.)
I'm certainly going to play the game, and I'll give ND the benefit of the doubt. They've earned that respect IMO. Just that the content of the trailer isn't really what I care about with the game. It may be more meaningful in context, it may not be. But with this being the only aspect of the story so far that pertains to the main characters, it makes me wonder why they felt that was more Important to show than something that people can connect with. The fact that almost all discussion on the potential story leads to the eventual lesbian kiss scene and the general hostility it gets because of the nature of the content, I just don't it pointless and distracting and it makes me feel like it was done more to serve an agenda, than to hype the game.
Why do so many people care about what other people bang? I mean as long as it isn't children or rape then who cares?
I’m going to go with the big 3; internet anonymity, jealously, and misguided fear/anger.
The game is racist towards white males. And heterophobic. Why would we buy this game?
In what way?
They are pushing this lesbian angle more than anything when it comes to this game. The lesbian thing in this game is front and center. It was the main focus of the last E3 trailer and ever since than it's only about that. I'll pass on this because of hardcore agenda pushing.
not just game they are pushing stuff like this, music, films, even primary schools
True. Everyone can do whatever they want. I can also not buy this game for my reasons and not participate in things that promote this stuff as it was the most important thing ever.
The Nose Goblin can smell sniff all the spores right out of the air.
Another game for gays, SJWs and trans people. We are not even the intended audience.
"We are not even the intended audience" Who is "we" exactly? Oh.. its just you and a few oversensitive people it seems. Your comment history speaks for itself too..
if Joel is just a side character in this one then Ive lost interest. Not interested in playing the lesbian of us.
Are there even any straight people working at Naughty Dog anymore or did they all get fired for not being gay enough?
Lol I'm hoping naughty dog doesn't turn into SJW and shove their own private intentions down our throats because the last thing I want the game to concentrate on is lgbt instead of actually being a stellar game.
They already are though...like it's their main focus right now.
Worst case scenario could be ND turning into the next Bioware.
I think it's funny that people bring up Ellie being gay in the first game as if if WASN'T revealed after the main game in some DLC that literally made Ellie gay. It's like Druckman made her a typical nervous girl in the main game but that was all...it wasn't until the DLC that she "came out" so to speak. Even if she was gay in the first place it was still Druckman's decision to make it some main focal point of the game which is what I think bothers people. Characters like Bill being gay but not being out and right about it was great. Subtle and very natural. Having Ellie and Dina make out center screen isn't natural, it's more of a statement. People also tend to forget that she also isn't real...you aren't insulting or hurting anyone by talking about her. To the fact that she isn't real that means that everything about her is created by someone else so her being gay isn't something she was born with. She was made to be gay. Literally. I guess for me too it's just all this PC and SJW stuff going on, policing language and free speech in the name of "equality"...all while making others less-than.
Exactly. The issue is not that she is lesbian. The issue is that their main focus is that she is a lesbian and that takes center stage. They are making this fact one of, if not the most important aspects of this game. At least that is what I'm getting from what I've seen from TLoU2
