The Newest Best GTA V Fan Art

Rockstar likes to keep the GTA V community engaged even when they’re not running one of GTA Online’s challenging heists. They often post on their proprietary news platform, the Rockstar Newswire, about community creations such as custom jobs, impressive Rockstar Editor videos or particularly creative fan art. We’ve brought to you reports of previous batches of GTA V fan art publicized on the Newswire before, and Rockstar has just posted another batch.

First up we have a criminally stylish desktop wallpaper inspired by the neon-laden setting of GTA: Vice City. A night drive along the beach boulevard with the colorful glow of the city illuminating the evening seems like the perfect way to relax after a hard day, based on this sweet image.

Next up we have, instead of a particular art submission (though that cover is impressive), another collection of GTA fan art. meta. “What Happens In The Dark” is a community created GTA fan art online magazine, aimed at all you discerning criminals out there. Check it out here!

The next, rather active image comes from Chank, who specializes in sticker-style art. Here, he gives us a disturbingly accurate idea of what kind of a person Trevor Phillips really is.

gta_art_trevor

In a sharp turn following the previous piece, this submission depicts what Trevor would be like after his “conversion” to the mentality of peace, joy, happiness, tolerance and… well, drugs. Some things never change, right?

Next up is a callback to the days of GTA: San Andreas, depicting the Grove Street family big-head style. The well known and loved characters of the legendary game, Sweet, Big Smoke, CJ and Ryder appear in their signature green garb and toting a fierce arsenal.

We ask this every time, but have you guys ever made any GTA V fan art? Feel free to share in the comments!

Check Out This Batch Of GTA V Fan Art

We’ve previously reported on a batch of fan art that Rockstar brought attention to on the newswire. Much like the occasional selection of endorsed community made jobs and missions, Rockstar frequently gives credit to the best of the fan art made to commemorate the company’s games, GTA V being the most prominent among these.

This time around we’ll take a look at what may be some of the most dedicated GTA V fans. Putting tons of effort into an extremely detailed cosplay, and having an image obviously associated with GTA (more-or-less) permanently carved into your dermal layer is a pretty epic show of fandom!

A Youtuber with a fair following wants to show off his refined taste and appreciation of classics by having a rather large image of 8-Ball from GTA III on his shin. If you think that’s an impressive flaunting of dedication, just wait till you see the finished work of the full montage with Misty and Claude Speed as well.

While you wouldn’t think that the fans of a game like GTA V might have many make-up artists among them, however there for sure is at least one extremely talented one among them. While Trevor is hardly sets an example to be followed, a little cosplay cannot hurt, and this one is extremely detailed, not to mention authentic.

And when you thought that’s the last instance of GTA V fan make-up art, you’re in for a bit of a shocker, as someone has gone ahead and turned their face into the monkey mask as seen in GTA Online. Imagine what a mess washing all of that off might have left (at least as much as a particularly bloody heist, we recon).

There are quite a few other pieces of fan art that Rockstar has promoted. Check them all out here.

GTA V Meets… Dominoes?

If you thought you’ve seen weird fan art before, you’re in for a treat. One particular GTA V fan, who has criminal quantities of free time, has made a massive and extremely elaborate domino construction as tribute to Rockstar’s massively popular franchise.

dom

The artist used up a whopping forty thousand dominoes in this project, and set them up to draw out the GTA V and Rockstar logos, and minimalist depictions of the three protagonists. Now, getting to this part of the video most of you are probably amazed at why the hell someone would spend time with this, and be awed by the meticulous attention to detail. But wait! There’s more! Following the three protagonists, we see “Los Santos” written out in the stylized font, followed by famous landmarks and recognizable buildings made entirely of dominoes collapsing in elaborate ways. We even see multi-tiered domino constructions – it’s insane. Check out the video below!

The genius behind this feat of absolute time-wasting (we’re not serious about these jabs, we all have hobbies, and we genuinely admire the guy’s skills) is someone who goes by the internet moniker WebGuy1000, who runs a Youtube Channel called Domino Entertainment. It should be pretty apparent what kinds of videos go up on the channel. But for those among you who may have had a rough night and struggle with stringing cohesive sentences together (also, why are you on the internet if this is the case?), the channel is filled with various videos of dominoes falling over.

Now, if we think beyond small pieces of plastic set up with extreme care, only to be toppled soon after, we realize how poetic this all is. GTA V, at its core, is about chaos, mayhem and destruction, and that is what we see here too.

Have you crossed GTA V with one of your unrelated hobbies?

Rockstar Showcases GTA V Fan Art

It is no secret that GTA V sold extremely well, and that the number of gamers who play GTA V grows day by day. Now, that’s a lot of fans, and chances are, some of them have a knack for arts and crafts. The GTA series has always been very fan-artable, and arguably GTA V has the most potential for community made masterpieces yet. Rockstar Games knows that they have much to thank their community for, and in accordance with this, like to bring attention to the various GTA-related things the fans get up to every now and then.

Players can design their own missions in GTA V, and Rockstar showcases and promotes the best of these missions every now and then. However players don’t only make a show of creativity in the world of GTA V. Fans show their love for the game by creating various works of art, and Rockstar recently posted a collection of what they think are the best recent works of fan-art related to GTA V.

First up, we have a stylish sketch of Trevor out in the desert, doing what we can only assume is his favorite pass time. Killing and drinking. This is hardly Julia Scott’s first piece of GTA V fan-art, aas Rockstar readily reminds us.

GTA has always had its signature art style, one so characteristic that it has become synonymous with the series. So what happens when the protagonists are depicted using a different art style, created by a caricature artist? Well, really nice art, actually.

For some atmospheric and gloomy art, look no further than Pashoto’s tribute to the Lost and Damned.

With rumors about GTA VI possibly featuring a female protagonist, these particular submissions may as well have been an attempt to land a job at Rockstar Games.

The following two works run in a similar vein.

Next up, we have a rendition of Michael’s younger years. Seems like he was no happier with life back then than he is during the events of GTA V.

Last but not least, we have one pretty dedicated fan’s LEGO replica of the Grotti Turismo R.

New GTA V Mural at Wilshire and S. Western in LA

michael-mural

GTA V murals continue to be spotted in various places in the United States (along with the odd GTA 5-themed truck in Taipei), with this latest piece of artwork being found at the corner of Wilshire Blvd. and S. Western Ave in Los Angeles.

As you can see only Michael is featured, and like a lot of the other GTA V advertisements we’ve covered, only the Playstation 3 logo is shown (the game is coming to Xbox 360 as well!).

I guess that Sony is contributing to the cost of this marketing campaign more than, or to the exclusion of, Microsoft. Pre-orders for the Xbox 360 version of the game are still higher than PS3 pre-orders in the US.

GTA V Murals in New York and LA

As you can see from our Grand Theft Auto V release countdown timer (to the right) we are at approximately 40 days until GTA 5 hits store shelves, and Rockstar appears to be ramping up its marketing efforts.

One vigilant GTAForums member “mrbozzedup” managed to grab some shots of a new GTA V mural being painted in Brooklyn and also the infamous Hotel Figueroa in Los Angeles (this particular piece of art looks like it will be extremely impressive once complete!).

While Grand Theft Auto hype has been at extreme levels amongst hardcore gamers for months or even years now, it seems time like the public joined in on the GTA V madness too…

GTA V avatar items, prison system, wallpaper & HQ gameplay video

This post is a mash-up of sorts and represents all the cool Grand Theft Auto V stuff we’ve come across in the last 24 hours. Considering the short time-frame, we’re pretty pleased!

GTA V avatar items

First off, those of you with an Xbox 360 can now download GTA V avatar items from the Xbox Live Marketplace. These include a GTA V t-shirt, Chop (Franklin’s dog), and Bugstar, abseiling, scuba and FIB outfits. Take a look here.

 Uncompressed gameplay trailer

There is an uncompressed version of the GTA V gameplay trailer available to download on the Playstation Network, which obviously doesn’t help those of us without a PS3! Never fear though, because a copy has popped up on Kim Dotcom’s new file hosting site, Mega.co.nz. This is the download link and to unencrypt it you’ll need this key: d0P89xd8QLCeoIQxG3sskGESxt0OvRfjo2SfZVmul0Y

This difference is slight, but noticeable.

 Prison in GTA 5

Next up, and thanks to Reddit, we have what looks to be the first (or at least noticed) sighting of a prison in GTA V. Check out the screencap below, but this follows on from previous rumors that there would be a prison of some kind in GTA 5. It definitely looks more like a prison to us anyway. What do you think?

 New GTA V wallpaper

Finally we have two very special wallpapers for Grand Theft Auto V. The first image comes courtesy of Patrick Brown, who has done drawings for GTA V before (here and here). The second image is from bu22y of deviantART. Not often you get two highly professional new wallpapers on the same day!

Grand Theft Auto V forum avatar creations

This post may not be strictly GTA 5 cheats or news related, but it will appeal to most Grand Theft Auto fans, we think.

A GTAForums user by the name of deffpony has a knack for making forum avatars it seems, and posted a whole heap of his creations here. Some All of them are actually pretty cool/funny, and we thought we’d show some appreciation for his work and help spread the word.
