Manhunt Piggsy Bust

A bust of overweight, mentally disturbed mass murderer who wears a severed pig's head over his own and slaughters his victims with a chainsaw. Ladies and gentlemen I present you, Piggsy.
Almost 10 years after the games release I still Love it, and have wanted to do a bust of this Fat Fuck for years. It was done with air dry clay and painted with acrylics and ink......I will eventually do one of the white rabbit.

Patrick Likes Tommy

Patrick Brown wanted to celebrate the release of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City 10th Anniversary with a simple portrait of Vice City's most powerful man, in his classic pose. Patrick admitted that Tommy Vercetti is his favorite protagonist in Grand Theft Auto universe. Currently Mr. Brown spends most of his time with Candy Suxxx in his trailer.

Tommy Vercetti: You know Ken, this could be the beginning of a beautiful business relationship. I mean you're a conniving, back-stabbing, two-bit thief; and I'm a convicted, psychotic killer and drug dealer!
Ken Rosenberg: I know. Ain't it just beautiful?

New GTA 5 Fan art

Brand new GTA 5 fan art by a Russian artist from Moscow, Igor. It could easily be mistaken for an official artwork, since Igor kept it within the traditional art style that was used by Rockstar Games for their promotional posters.

Looks like Trevor has to resolve a little misunderstanding. A sawed-off shotgun, a canister of gas and a junkyard. Surely a successful negotiation tactic he learned from a business course.

Vice City Eyes

For many Vice City was the first and only gateway to the 80's. Been set in one of the most fashion and music craze era, it's no surprise that it's electrifying atmosphere keeps attracting like a magnet

When the freelance graphics designer who started his way on becoming a professional makeup artist, Bruce Elliott, was asked by his niece to do her makeup, his first thought was to use Vice City as his inspiration. The result of this project you can see below.

Many of us might not know much about makeup, but there's no denying that Bruce successfully managed to  capture the feel of Vice City with his mix of shades.

She would fit perfectly in 80's Little Haiti looking like this.

Lola Del Rio Tattoo

Grand Theft Auto IV fans spent hours looking for Lola Del Rio in Liberty City. Forums were full or theories and directions to where to find that enigmatic streetwalker. There was always someone who had "proof" of her existence, yet so many failed in their search.

An unknown fan decided to get a tattoo of Lola Del Rio on their body so it would always be there as a reminder that no matter how much you look for it, some things are just beyond reach.

Tattoo was done by Brian Kelly. Design has a modernized traditional Americana style feel to it. Featuring bold, black outlines, filled with solid red, blue, yellow, and embellished with little or no shading.

Hey look, she has only FIVE fingers!

Madonna in GTA V?

It's been pointed out that the girl who get's arrested in Vinewood on GTA V artwork, bears remarkable resemblance to Madonna. Especially from the poster of the singer's latest tour, MDNA. It's also worth mentioning that the female police officer, who makes the arrest, looks a lot like Pvt. J. Vasquez. Who was played by  Jenette Goldstein in movie "Aliens" (1986). And the name tag on her uniform also says Vasquez. Coincidence?

What we have here is a concept of what could be the new CJ model in one of possible mods for upcoming Grand Theft Auto V game. I'ts very detailed, accurate and well sculptured, but the Brazilian freelancer 3D artist Arthur Palmeira has not shared any future plans regarding this project of his.

Let's hope this model will one day walk the streets of Los Santos.

This Fan Art by Filipe Aguiar is perfect for summing up San Andreas' gaming experience. Lets face it, San Andreas was awesome. And there’s nothing more awesome than a well crafted piece of video game fan art.

As soon as official artwork for Grand Theft Auto V hit internet, fans went crazy and creativity took over. A lot of fan-art start to appear. A superb set of top quality wallpapers, which can be found here, was made by a very talented Russian graphic designer, Ilya V. Boykov.

This time the artist decided to go a bit further, and injected some life into Rockstar Games' 2D art. The video shows what could potentially be the actual loading screens in Grand Theft Auto V, since it got personal approval from the Environment Artist at Rockstar North, Ben Jackson.

Everyone loves art by Rockstar Games, but that if they would come to life!
