A visual comparison between the old character model and the newly-revamped one for Ellie in the upcoming Playstation 3 exclusive title, The Last of Us.
The Ellen Page comparisons were probably another incentive to change her up
yeah, no kidding, she could probably sue Sony for using her likeness without permission
http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... "All characters appearing in this work are fictitious. Any resemblance to real persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental." The reason this disclaimer exists is because for any character you create, there is going to be someone, somewhere in the world, who looks like him/her.
People are reading into it too much. The original design was perfect, not plastered in make up and not in any way masculine. Perfect female character design for a game with this sort of setting. Although I wouldn't have noticed her appearance had changed had people not pointed it out lol.
for some reason i think ellen page is to cool to do something like that
is that Ellen Page may have been the base reference model(if) and they worked from there.
srsly, she was clearly copied and looked towards for the girl's appearance. Anyone who claims its just a coincidence is in denial.
Who cares if she was copied though? I don't think anyone does, but I think the newest model is the best one.
@fastNslowww lol Who cares? Making it bigger then it is like this is a negative against the game or something.
The missing eyebrow is a bit distracting.. Besides that, they should have done a side by side, because I don't see much of a difference.
I liked the Ellen Page look-alike :)
What are y'all talking about? It looks even more like Ellen Page now ffs.
Actually I think the real reason is facial animation - Naughty Dog has really step up their game in this aspect - It looks as if they have a really amazing facial animation system for this engine.. I give you exhibit A: http://i.imgur.com/RsYWE.jp... You can see how scared she is just from the facial expression -that just amazing.. Looks really good, this could be one amazing game... -and so I just think it was more about showing the face then anything else, as it clearly is easier to see her facial expression with the hair moved slightly up.. Naughty Dog really looks like they are going to set the bar once again with this one... .____........___...____ .____||......||.......____|| ||.........___||.......____||
damn, good eye to spot that. thats really cool.
Im surprised no one has picked up on the characters age difference. The Joel is like Obi-wan: Wise, Intelligent and has seen the world in 2 different forms. Ellie is like Luke: Young, innocent and unsuspecting of the world around her. In the first trailer she says "these streets used to be full of people" as though its a myth. There's a lot this game can do and im sure ND will take advantage of their characters to tell a brilliant story like Uncharted!
I dunno because she still looks like Ellen Page to me. If the attitude is similar to how Ellen was like in Juno, then I'm more hyped for this game.
Man everyone keeps focusing on Ellie.... Joel needs some love too you know :(
They should have a skin you could put on her to make her look like Young Nathan Drake. just for fun.
when I fist saw it i noticed she looked way younger
"when I fist..." Hey! What you do behind closed doors... j/k
Wordsmith. Couldn't of said it better.
Erm...I think you've got it the wrong way round. In the new character model, she's more chubbier. It gives her a childish look, unlike the previous model which resembled a 15/16 year old teenager.
I was going to attempt to make an inappropriate joke from your comment. Something about a chubby. The pieces are all there.
lol go ahead XD @below...you must be insecure. :(...
I think you got it around the wrong way. The first image is the new model.
She actually looks her age now. Her previous model made her look older. I find that her new model looks a bit unnatural though, kind of like Elena's new model in Uncharted 3.
I think it's cause people thought she looked to similar to Ellen Page which she did.
No one ever complained about the guy in LA Noir looking like Robert Duvall. I don't understand why now.
those were real people/actors.
I get that but there are plenty of examples of game characters looking like actors that no one makes a big deal out of.
lol, those were the actors' real faces. somebody obviously missed the memo on the tech that was used for that game...
its same with the black guy in starhawk, it was reported they was getting hate for that, CJ is black in gta oh and they was no hate that a guy was called packy yes and he looked like on oh and no hate for the guy been black in prototype.. its just sony haters as always
wait what? Saying she looked like Ellen page is not sony hating. I like Ellen Page
I understand what you mean. Mary in Silent Hill 2 looked identical to Cameron Diaz.
I don't think people we're making a big deal about it, i think people just thought that she looked like Ellen Page but really wasn't complaining about it but maybe the developers saw the similarities and they didn't like it so they probably changed her.
ur avatar thing is moss from IT crowd right? reminds me of him
She completely looked like Ellen Page and older than the character's age. The new one brings youth back into the face with chubbier chicks and a less defined face.
Gah! Beat me to the draw. Anyhoo, I preferred the original design, but I'm not going to cry about the change. Can't wait for more information on the game.
I hate the new look, she looks like my step sister..I hate that Bi#@*. Now I have no reason OR desire to keep her safe.
Love me some Ellie. *drools*
She looks older than before
The first of every pair is the newer one. She actually looks younger. Fresher... juicier...
Oh ok thanks for clearing that up, in that case yeah she looks younger
Does anyone else kinda prefer the Ellen Page look alike? I mean the new one look's kinda younger than 14 probably like 11-12 while the other one look's pretty matured but a teenage kinda matured.
she looks better now to imo. lol who cares? I will enjoy this game! Maybe if people complain enough they will release the old Ellie head as dlc?
Bigger eyes definitely help to show expressions easily from a distance.. Same thing that happened with Elizabeth in Bioshock infinite, just less extreme. I think she better looks her age now, and given this is a ND game and likely sure-fire hit that means shell grow up in the inevitable sequels. I don't see how the other model couldn't have aged even MORE into Ellen Page! Think either of them might die? So far ND haven't killed off characters much.
the new model is 100 times better, it fits the voice a lot more too.
hmm the previous one was better in my opinion
It was to me to, it seemed like the first model had a higher poly count. You can really see the difference in the hair.
Who the hell cares? apparently everyone I dont get it.
I prefer the new ellie ^^
Am I the only person who can barely see a difference? I didn't notice a thing until somebody pointed it out... and I can still just barely see it.
Her entire face...is shaped differently, smaller features,eyebrows, less eye glare, etc.
I can see it when I'm actually trying to notice the differences but from a quick glance it's really not that noticeable to me. Meh all you white folks look the same lol j/k.
To me, she still looks like Ellen Page. But I love that.
At least I still get to play as Gerard Butler.
Holy crap TBH the PS3 still a high end HD Console just like a expensive Gaming PC
Man idk I kinda prefer the old model
I am really looking forward to this game. Between this and Resident Evil 6, I will be sleeping with one eye opened for a couple of months.
What a beautiful game. Really somethin' else. New version of her has hair resting more naturally on her head. Eyes are closer together. Eyebrows are slightly thinner. Scar over her right eye is slightly smaller. Lines on face and around mouth are more natural. Nose is smaller. Freckling is more detailed. A lot of the lighter brown was removed from her hair. Unless I have the models reversed. Then oh well lol
looks like the just made her skin lighter and less freckly to me haha I don't really see a difference. Beyond stoked for this game though
