Fan Art & Snapmatics: "A Hard Day's Heist", Homemade Los Santos Blueprint Map Skateboard Decks & More

Posted on March 20 2015, 11:52am | Author: R* X | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

This week’s collection of favorite fan creations features inspired album cover remakes, clever GTAV skate decks, plus some truly exceptional Snapmatic photography.

LazyAssedLover is a member of both the Kendrick Lamar fan club Black Hippy TDE Crew and the Snapmatic Art Crew - and here shows his love for both with this pretty spot on recreation of Kendrick Lamar's Good Kid M.A.A.D City album cover. Made entirely with in-game photography and the Snapmatic meme creator tool.

 

Just in time for Online Heists, deviantARTist Exubiuz pays tribute to a Fab Four classic and to the original Story Mode Heists experience by casting Trevor, Michael, Chop and Franklin as Paul, John, Ringo and George.

 


You're going to want to zoom in on the full size version of this impeccable bit of GTAV pixel art done by MedianGame shared by Redditor Walkerbane.


Pragmaticinsanity's series of Trevor Philips sketches feel like a true psychological character study.


Vanessa Baumann aka DrAssenov created this original illustration of her fierce and fashionable GTA Online character. Watch DrAssenov in action with this sped up BTS video of the 5 hour and 15 minute drawing process to see how it came together.


One sock, no pants, spattered in blood, on a rampage. Sounds about right. Trevor by Omerta aka chaosandentropy.tumblr.


@realmarston vies for the title by indelibly honoring his namesake with this monster Red Dead Redemption tattoo he tweeted our way. This epic half-sleeve took 8 hours non-stop - true grit.


Photographer, illustrator and graphic designer @panama_red1981 fashioned these awesome GTAV skateboard decks repurposing materials from the game packaging: "I used the Special Edition Blueprint Map, [Trevor, Michael & Franklin] team picture and game box."


Snapmatic trick photography? Not quite - avid GTA photog Sophie used the PS4 Share feature to create this very clever 'taking a mental picture' shot.
 

STUNNING SNAPMATICS

GTAForums recently hosted their Annual Awards and below are the three winners in their Best Snapmatic of 2014 category with Starscream910 taking top honors for a fiery shot of the Bravado Buffalo entitled "Golden Dragon". Congratulations as well to Cratoz911 and quaid86 who were awarded second and third place respectively. Check out the winning shots below.


[GTAF - 1st Place - "Golden Dragon" by Starscream 910]


[GTAF - 2nd Place - "Meteor St" by Cratoz911]


[GTAF - 3rd Place - "Redwood Lights Track" by quaid86]
 

To celebrate hitting 200 members (and now up to nearly 400!), the Snapography Crew hosted a contest recently asking members to "recreate the spirit of Vice City" and hashtag them #vice200. The result was a totally awesome neon-tinged 80's flashback. The shots above were taken by (clockwise from top left) contest winner Manny2Shoes, incredible91852PSNmadman and RyanArtWorks.

 


Sariska84 happened to be in the right time and place to catch this poetic shot of a butterfly befriending a Rhino near Carcer Way. 


A heated after hours Race goes down on the rooftop of the Maze Bank Arena. Taken by Banjabi.


hunn1k locates a parking space worthy of the sleek and stylish contours of the silver Truffade Z-Type.

GTA Twitch community all-star LadyMiss80s rolls with a friend packing some explosive party favors.


samsults strikes a sinister chord with this intimidating shot of the Smiley Gang's "Please Stop Me" mask.

OregonBudz, aka the Henny Youngman of the Snapmatic scene, is fast becoming known for his comedy snaps series, putting the meme creator to very amusing use.

 

Have you seen or created a great Snapmatic photo or other bit of exceptional fan art that you'd like to share? Be sure to drop a link to it in the comments below for the Social Club community to enjoy or send it our way to see via Mouthoff and we’ll check it out..

Join us for a lineup of very special Rockstar livestreams on Twitch happening through next week:


ADVERSARY MODES Livestreams Tomorrow and Monday
Adversary Modes are intense new competitive challenges that unlock as you progress through GTA Online Heists - and now that the GTA community worldwide has had a solid week or so to try and pull them off, we'll be jumping in to play all three Adversary Modes live on Twitch along with some very special guests.

Friday, March 20     5pm ET*     Featuring SIR BOB CORNELIUS RIFO aka THE BLOODY BEETROOTS and guests from the GTA community
Renowned EDM master Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo aka The Bloody Beetroots is a serious GTA enthusiast in his own right and hosted his own Twitch stream earlier this week live at the DIM MAK channel. He's playing a big show tomorrow night at Webster Hall in New York City, and will be swinging by Rockstar NYC to throw down with Rockstar and other guests from the GTA community.

Monday, March 23     5pm ET*     featuring GOLDGLOVE, VERNNOTICE, IIJERIICHOII, and SWIFTOR
You may have thrilled to the ongoing intense, and hilarious, Heist streams that GTA YouTube and Twitch all-stars GoldGlove, VernNoticeiijeriichoii and our old friend Swiftor have all been doing ever since last week. We're excited to welcome all these guys for a sure-to-be-insane VS stream playing the Adversary Modes this Monday.
Together, in both streams, we'll be playing all of the new Adversary Modes including:

Come Out To Play - Inspired by a certain real live bunch from Coney, a team of Runners tries to make it all the way home on foot being pursued by an opposing bloodthirsty mob of well-armed and mobile Hunters.
Siege Mentality - You must protect this house! A team defends their fort against another who are insistent on a full-on home invasion.
Hasta La Vista - In a bit of Vinewood deja vu, a team of Cyclists must evade another team of murderous Truckers hell-bent on crushing them under their big rigs.
 

Next Friday, March 27     4pm ET*
Special Guest: J.B. SMOOVE

You know him as the host of Four Courses with J.B. Smoove and from his classic appearances in Curb Your Enthusiasm, Top Five, and countless other hilarious shows and movies.

Smoove is going to be in town to perform at the all-star Garden of Laughs comedy benefit at Madison Square Garden next Saturday night (New Yorkers: tickets to this fantastic event for a great cause are still available) and is coming by Rockstar NYC Friday May 27th to play some GTA and have unlimited bantz live with hosts Lazlow and IGN's Max Scoville and Brian Altano.
