La BF Bifta IRL d'Iceteax

 

Thank you to BenDeR of the Grand Theft Auto Network France fan site for giving us a heads-up recently about the amazing work of his compatriot Iceteax - who has been painstakingly re-creating the BF Bifta as a real life dune buggy - down to the San Andreas license plate. Iceteax worked on the vehicle for 10 hours a week since August 2015 and the results are truly fantastique. Be sure to check out the video above to see Iceteax take his homemade Bifta out off-roading across the terroir of the Languedoc - blowing past scenic wind turbines in classic GTA Online racing fashion.

The stinging splatter of red on the otherwise black and white canvas packs a punch in crowlls' excellent, Trevor Philips piece.

Red Dead
 by Evan Luza

Atlanta-based graphic designer Evan Luza specializes in bold and iconic illustrations. He sent us this original piece via Mouthoff - a tribute to Red Dead Redemption with a windswept design, capturing the adventure, danger and spirit of being an outlaw to the end.

And the international world of GTA Online character avatar custom portraiture continues to astound – here are some of the latest standout pieces, including some from the most prolific artists on the scene…

Russian artist Sandra-Black put together this Valentine’s gift for popular Russian YouTubers OlegBrain aka TheBrainDit and AlexPozitiv - decked out in Red Stockings and Black Leopard Boxer shorts from GTA Online: Be My Valentine.


 

Till death do us part by DigiMaru

Cartoonist DigiMaru pays tribute to both the recently released Adversary Mode Till Death Do Us Part and the 90's animated sitcom The Critic. Sporting the mode’s dapper vintage wear and toting his-and-hers Gusenberg Sweepers – it's a charming bit of portraiture.

At missbellamelli's request, Italian DeviantARTist Lonedevil87 has joined the ranks of those called upon to bring GTA Online characters to life. "I never thought that a person could ask me to do a potrait drawing... but a little scared and happy, I accepted the challenge... I hope I managed to create something good for her D:"

GTA Online Characters
by Grobi-Grafik

These days, no GTA Online character portrait round-up is complete without the artistic stylings of Grobi-Grafik. Grobi’s latest creation mashes up a fierce avatar portrait commission alongside some dramatic characters of his own invention, in a vintage comic book pencils-and-inks style.


Character Portraits by DJ1NNsGR1MO1R3

Sourcing in-game shots of Raspy and Mahey31 for reference, Canadian artist DJ1NNsGR1MO1R3 aka Pleasance13 creates these portraits that look to have come straight out of the GTAV loading screens.



Grand Theft Auto Online: Liberté Égalité Fraternité by W_Flemming

"This artwork is dedicated to Freedom, Equality and Brotherhood, three words that best identify The Damned Brotherhood and FReeNCHCo on Grand Theft Auto Online." GTA fan art veteran W_Flemming portrays Crewmates Boolax, GoGoKilla and MiKiNiNo, pictured ready to defend their Yacht and elegantly transposed to some well-worn playing cards. Some sweet details in this one, including GoGoKilla rocking the Statue Of Happiness t-shirt from The Independence Day Update. Check out a motion graphics video version of these artworks, and appreciate the attention to detail via a few high-res close-ups.
