RDR Pixel Art by Ehsan Vaezi A member of the Iranian Rockstar Fans Facebook group, Ehsan Vaezi, has masterfully created this detailed pixel art interpretation of Red Dead Redemption. From the signature Western frontier sunsets to the individually posed pixilated characters, these clips give John Marston's America a comparatively new school and yet still old school effect. Roxy by Grobi-Grafik Twitter’s @ILL_AUDIO_ sings GTA Online Fan Art veteran Grobi_Grafik’s praises in one of his latest commissions to have hit the GTA Online avatar scene. Even fresh from a fight, Roxy’s sassy gaze marks that she is ready for the next tussle.   GTA Online Character by Grobi-Grafik Freshening up the usual formula he follows, Grobi’s latest GTA Online commission features a special guest appearance in the form of Mr. Philips himself. As usual, Trevor seems to be quite a hit with the ladies.   Ready or Not by mistywren "Beta Cats are a wonderful, creative group who I've been following for quite some time now. If you're a fan of cosplay and Achievement Hunter they're right up your alley." For those looking to terrify their enemies, take a page from mistywren’s ode to nothingofeden’s GTA Online character Pyro. The Pyro Chronicles 1 video from Beta Cats serving as inspiration, mistywren artfully captures the avatar's Orange Face Paint, Black lips and flames reflected in Possessed Contacts.  Black Bloody Hockey Mask by FroudeyBrand Kudos to SC member FroudeyBrand, who sent in this awesome recreation of his character’s Black Bloody Hockey Mask via Mouthoff. Froudey sanded down and painted an average Halloween mask to make it look as close as possible to his in-game character’s version that he’s been using since late 2013. Bank Story by Jinchao This leather-clad biker girl comes compliments of Chinese DeviantARTist Jinchao. Fresh from a heist, this fuchsia-haired fashion maven looks to be making a clean getaway.   Karyn by HendryRoesly A suppressed weapon is a girl’s best friend. Check out HendryRoesly’s alternate GTA Online character, drenched in all-black and looking for trouble. Kaine and Hudson by GalooGameLady Adding to her caricature repertoire, GalooGameLady hits us with her first GTA Online-inspired commission of Grogpole’s dynamic duo, Kaine and Hudson. These sharp-dressed men are all business in their finely tailored suits and cocked Pistol and Assault Rifle.   Mr. Owl by GK-7 Joining the GTA Online commission club, GK-7 adds RayTheMax’s GTA Online avatar to the mix. Toting a Shotgun, blood-splattered clothing and an Owl Mask that's seen better days, this character is due for a bit of R&R.     Lamar Davis by GnarlyPaintBrush   As a follow up to his Red Dead Redemption speed art back in June, GnarlyPaintBrush’s latest Rockstar fan art is a homage to the incomparable Lamar Davis. Red Dead Redemption by W-Orks French DeviantARTist W-Orks creates a fantastic movie-style poster art collage perfectly depicting the essence of the Wild West.   Los Santos Google Map by Guy Peterson Check out part deux of Guy Peterson’s fictional map art spree as he illustrates the whole of Los Santos in Google Map style. Don't forget to click through to the full size version of this incredibly detailed piece. Trevor by Maximillian-V "Wanted to make a realistic version of Trevor from GTA5... never expected the result to be SO creepy." Trevor Philips, dark and calculating, in Maximillian-V’s portrait.   Retro Pißwasser by Francis As Though this retro style Pißwasser poster ad looks like it has endured a bit of wear and tear over the years, it is still quite the impressive piece by Argentinian graphic artist Francis As AKA TOUGHPAPER22.

As always, if you've got some fantastic fan art or Snapmatics to share, be sure to drop your work in the comments below for the Social Club community to appreciate. Deep Sea Adventures by oathDCR Cleverly melding multiple Snapmatics with a bit of inspired Photoshop work, longtime community member oathDCR magically bottles up the life aquatic of San Andreas. GTA V Fan Art by Matt Slater Australian multimedia designer Matt Slater fashioned this pleasantly kitschy ad campaign for the Karin Futo and Vapid Bullet. Lovely in its simplicity, but don't miss the sweet details to be found here - from their custom tires to their signature decals and stripes. Board Game by Daniel Steel Some impressive planning was put into this original and wonderfully detailed Red Dead Redemption inspired board game made by UK-based design student Daniel Steel. In the board game's design, players move their miniature trains around the circuit of winding plastic train tracks on the board, competing as they land at stops with questions and challenges until the first player reaches the star in the center - which Daniel cites as representing both the winner's star badge and as a very sweet homage to Rockstar that we're honored by.  Lester by Grobi-Grafik Heading back to his roots, ubiquitous fandom artist Grobi-Grafik reminds us of where he started with this awesome gender-bending imagining of Lester, drawn after recently replaying GTAV again. With cane, asthma pump, and up-to-no-good side gaze, Grobi nails one of the best behind-the-scenes criminals around.   Max Payne by Grobi-Grafik “Played it again a few days ago, still the best shootout-porn out there.” Grobi continues his Rockstar replays and this art series with a Ms. Payne who channels not only the gruff protagonist himself but also evokes a bit of Furiosa and Ellen Ripley to boot. wpap Trevor by d32na Desna Ikhsandra aka d32na proudly embraces his native Indonesia's WPAP art movement (Wedha's Pop Art Portrait - as pioneered by famed artist Wedha Abdul Rasyid) and here gives the signature geometric multi-color treatment to Trevor’s familiar, mean mug. Birdie, Jester, Lee, and Lady East by Charlie Dunn Charlie Dunn, AKA @iChazzer on Twitter, marries multiple action-packed Snapmatics with dramatic poses of his Crewmates' GTA Online characters to do the UNIT chaotic justice. Debra by JamesMason0 “A woman who is so narcissistic that she has a giant portrait of herself in her living room.” JamesMason0 recreates one of his favorite GTAV characters in this 3D portrait of hot headed lawyer, Debra. Money and Love by Jackce-Art No romance without finance. Marce Esquivel aka Jackce-Art hooked up fellow DeviantArtist Aaliyah Lloyd aka AgentPrettyBoy with this commissioned piece portraying her original character as the paramour of Los Santos billionaire Devin Weston.   GTA Online: Chrissy by ArtRN French artist ArtRN uses Black Ink and Photoshop to create a very interesting, almost stained glass styled incarnation of their GTA Online character, Chrissy. Jimmy Hopkins from Bully @RockstarGames #pixelart #bully #fanart #RockstarGames pic.twitter.com/vygXSqivdY — Hoyb (@hoybhoyb) July 11, 2016 Back in December, we featured Hoyb’s 8bit style version of Claude Speed. Now that it’s been nearly a decade since Jimmy Hopkins first stomped and skated about Bullworth Academy's campus, Hoyb releases another retro gaming style rendition of a classic character from the Rockstar Games repertory. Dead End Alley by Juan Martinez Directly inspired by 'Dead End Alley' off the Red Dead Redemption Soundtrack, Chicago-based illustrator Juan Martinez painted this dramatic scene of John Marston purposefully approaching a stranger on the frontier.

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.
