Fan Pics: V Reimagined in 80s VC, Homemade Infographics, Fun with Filters and More
This week's latest round up of exceptional fan-created pics and artwork highlights players that have been taking full advantage of all the new Snapmatic features (released in the recent GTA Online Holiday Gift), plus some helpful and impressively detailed infographics as well as just a few of our favorite #XmasInLosSantos snaps that you guys shared during the Holiday Gift period that ended last Sunday January 5th.
We're always on the lookout for awesome Snapmatic shots and other original fan creations to feature here at the Newswire. If you've got a snap or some artwork that you'd like to share, drop a link to it in the comments below so that the rest of the Social Club community can check it out and feedback or email it directly to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
New Snapmatic photo filters used to a great retro vibe effect.

No stranger to taking in the scenery, Ensor1 caught the sun setting on a picturesque day in San Andreas.
Amsterdam based infographic wizards Spijkermat created this elaborate buyers guide to getting the most out of your GTAV driving experience. They tracked the speed, braking, acceleration and handling of each vehicle, calling out the best buy, most expensive, best specs, and fastest.
You no longer have any excuses for not taking advantage of public transit in Los Santos. Redditor and cartographer m101m102m103 mapped out the Los Santos Transit System and apparently it wasn't his first time. Originally inspired by another Redditor who took a bus and drove it around a set route in GTAIV, m101m102m103 made this very intricate Liberty City Bus Map.
"Michael, Trevor and Franklin travel down south to lay low for a while, but per usual - things don't necessarily go as planned." Trinidadian artist Gerrel Saunders, does a totally rad job of bringing GTAV back to the 80s in his reimagining titled "GTA: Vice City Nights".
And finally, a special shout to everyone who shared their festive Snapmatics of the Grand Theft Auto Online Holiday Gifts between Christmas Eve and last Sunday, January 5th. Here are just a few of our faves from the #XmasInLosSantos collection and some fun New Year's ones we spotted as well...
