The Last of Us: Part 2 - Playground Early Concept

This was an early concept for a playground. I remember we wanted the place to look like a forest with "giant creatures" kind of direction. A lot of those animal sculptures/slides did showed up in the game, from Abby Flashback when she was looking for his father in the zoo to the Playground outside of the Aquarium where Ellie was trying to find a way into the aquarium. Finding them in the game was like a nice easter egg surprise.
This series was also the moment I slowly gotten the hang of doing photobash in a much cleaner way by studying a lot of works from

I hope you enjoyed it as much as I enjoy making them!

I was working on this whole series with my awesome teammates too.
