Fan Art: GTA Cinema, 3D Printer John Marston Model, L.S. Noire & More

This latest round up of amazing artistic endeavors features a 3D printed diorama, silver screen tributes, a bit of L.S. Noire, and some impressive Grove Street inspired ink that would make The Families proud. Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter and Instagram where we feature the latest fan creations, and as always if you’ve got something of your own, feel free to share it in the comments below for the community to check out. Self described "T.P. Enterprises Associate" and dedicated Trevor Philips fan Bulmaradkee's took two weeks to create this portrait of everyone's favorite hipster scoping out his next victim.DesertEagle used a 3D printer to set up a "piece scene from Red Dead Redemption with two cowboys dueling face to face", which was featured on 3D printing blog Shapetizer. The article includes schematics of the background set models so that you can compare the start of the process to the final diorama. Last year we featured this WIP by tattoo artist Maggie Brennan AKA @MaggieMaryJane. After spending a whopping 70 hours in the chair, the results of this inking are a truly impressive Grove Street tribute on her mate @mightdieb. The little details of the piece tucked into every corner are great, including the shoefiti and searching helicopter. GTA Photo Mashup by Slattsy This intense mashup created by Slattsy is insanely epic. Cargobobs, car chases and explosions in spades are what Grand Theft Auto Online is all about. L.S. Noire by VaultScout By altering a shot of the Oriental Theatre in Vinewood, VaultScout gives Michael De Santa and Los Santos the L.A. Noire treatment. The limited colour palette, dreamy impressionist style and 1940s attire complete the noirish atmosphere of the piece. Be sure to check out the widescreen version to appreciate every detail.  Three Bullets for Thessa by Koalindl Lightning has struck twice as deviantARTist Koalindl has also tapped into the L.A. Noire/GTAV crossover genre. Last August, we featured a few of this German artist's picture perfect postcards. For his follow up - Koalindl has started creating fan fiction in the form of an original graphic novel titled “Three Bullets for Thessa - An LS-Noir-Comic." As it is a WIP, check out Koalindl's deviantART page as he intends to update it frequently as the story progresses. Space Monkey 3D by Sarnosful After teasing us with a sneak peak several weeks ago, Spanish artist Sarnosful delivers a stellar storyboard of an imagined scene from Space Monkey 3D. Go go Space Monkey!   Heist Time by Stefi-Delly Packed in their custom Kuruma with Flare guns blazing "This is pretty much how we carry out every Heist" - solid plan indeed. Grand Theft Auto Movie Posters by GTAist GTAist has brought entertainment from the GTA universe to life with these homemade movie posters. Be sure to check out the full GTAist article to see the high-res images of Meltdown, Republican Space Rangers, and Impotent Rage. In our last go-around, we featured the celeb character creator stylings of CharmlessRogue; it seemed only fitting to feature Commissioner of the Evil Allstars Crew, Zebfar, who specializes in creating Snapmatics that are inspired by different movies. The time and meticulous coordination involved in these scenes may be daunting to most, but it seems Zebfar and company are more than happy to rise to the occasion with some impressive results. For more movie inspired Snapmatics, take a look at the full gallery here.   Have you seen or created an exceptional bit of fan art or great Snapmatic photo 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. And if you aren't already, make sure you're following us on Twitter, where we regularly share awesome community creations.   Previously:Femme Fatales, Celebrity Sightings, The Rockstar Rock & MoreUsing the Rockstar Editor to Make Stunning Spherical Panoramas and MoreMaze Bank Logo Sculpture, Tommy Vercetti as a Plushie & More

Fan Art: Snapmatic Surrealism, Bullworth GIFs, Throwback Art and More

Our latest collection of fan-created visual artistry covers a diverse variety of styles and influences, including dreamlike treatments of Snapmatic photos, one of our favorite pieces of San Andreas fan art from back in the day and a study of Michael and Trevor as imagined in their not-so-innocent youth. As always, should you come across any impressive GTA or Rockstar-related art or photos that you think other fans need to see, be sure to send them our way via Mouthoff and follow us at for all our latest official pics.           SNSTR_SHDW of the GOLD GANG Crew has been sharing these surreal scenes on Twitter, captured via Snapmatic and then edited using imaging software. Epseelutely, fka Radiopappa, makes this a hat-trick of Fan Art post mentions on the Newswire, having been previously featured for illustrations of young Trevor, Michael and Amanda pre-concert and the amazing GTA x Bullworth crossover. Here, the motif of Michael and Trevor in their formative years is continued with these detailed character studies, described as "stuff from back when I was thinking about ideal North Yanktons..."    Julia Scott is another Newswire Fan Art post alumni, with her stylish GTAV GIFS featured here back in July. Here she has Bully's Jimmy and Gary superbly drawn and with backgrounds nicely summing up the sophomoric chaos one might expect during a term at Bullworth.    A pair of throwback pieces nodding to classic GTA games. On the left we have an oldie but goldie - one of our favorite pieces of San Andreas fan art created by Filipe Aguiar back in '08. This month being the 10th anniversary of CJ's romp across the West Coast, it seemed a good time to dig this out from the vaults. Meanwhile, on the right we have a more recent piece by deviantARTist Cilab, depicting Vice City Stories protagonist Vic Vance, looking a bit longer in the tooth than we remember him.   We featured Reuben Dangoor's study of Trevor a little while back. He has since followed up with this portrait of Michael (left), with narrowed eyes and a furrowed brow that show a man with the kinds of problems only cheap liquor and expensive therapy can soothe. On the right, just another day at the office for a blood-stained Trevor... stepping out of an inferno in this piece by Argentinean artist Franco Raviglione.      New Zealand designer Felix Tindall (shrimpy99 on deviantART) has produced a large gallery of movie and game inspired posters in what he describes as his own "broad styles of minimalism". Red Dead and L.A. Noire are the first entries in his "Rockstar collection" series, with Max Payne 3 and GTAV coming down the line. Looking forward to them, Felix! Following the slick custom PS4 console skin in our previous fan pics roundup, tcmfgames on Instagram shared the perfect accessory - this fan-made controller bearing the new Starlet art that accompanied the “A Picket Fence and a Dog Named Skip” trailer. We're not sure who the creator is, but they seem to be all set for November 18th.   Norwich, England-based mural artist Gnasher sent over this custom GTAV mural via Twitter, featuring Franklin and Chop on guard to keep any would be slumber-spoilers at bay.   Geoffrey Halleux is a cosplayer from Belgium and this photo, channeling Marston mid-Dead Eye, features a costume that's entirely hand-made. Also check out Geoffrey's gruesome shot of a (fake!) buck going under the knife.   Bent pen tops and an ink-splattered table top show the work that has gone into this detailed L.A. Noire drawing by devinatARTist Ludicrous-Speed.     Previously:Trevor on Canvas, Damned Brotherhood Portraits, You Only Live Once Photo Journal & MoreA Lamar and Trevor Cross-Stitch Collaboration, Vintage Trio Portraiture, Trick Photography Snapmatics and More The GTAV Animated GIF Artwork of Julia Scott, Trevor Gets Patriotic & More

The Rockstar Alumni Concert Calendar: Summer Music Festivals Edition

  With summer kicking into gear, it seems like there's more music festivals on offer than ever all around the world - with a wide array of eclectic outdoor summer concert extravaganzas providing the chance to see many favorite bands you may have heard on Rockstar game soundtracks over the years.   From the Kings of the Mic Tour with a line-up of legendary rap acts ranging from 'West Coast warlord' Ice Cube to recent R&R Hall of Famers Public Enemy... To the 'shock therapy' delights of the Masters of Madness Tour which brings the spectacle of seeing Alice Cooper and Marilyn Manson on stage performing together... To perennial summer season festival favorites like Reading and Leeds in the UK (this year featuring Rockstar alums like Nine Inch Nails, Major Lazer, Foals, Sick of It All, and David Rodigan), Summer Sonic in Japan (featuring The Stone Roses, Living Colour, John Legend, M.I.A., and Busy P), and of course Lollapalooza (this year with The Cure, Nine Inch Nails, Queens of the Stone Age, Major Lazer and more). Outside of the big grand stage festivals, there's also plenty of legends touring their own headlining shows all summer long like Heart's Wilson sisters and KISS taking their circus show around the globe - and plenty others. Below is a handy list of many of the currently active touring artists, and as always feel free to post any others or your personal concertgoing experiences this summer in the comments section below...

Spring Festivals and Full-Length Albums Live - Rockstar Alumni Concert Calendar

As Biz Markie (a Rockstar soundtrack alumni himself via San Andreas' Playback FM) once bellowed - it's spring again. In addition to the trees and grass lookin' fresh, this also means the weather is getting ripe for music festival season and worldwide tours. The eclectic radio stations of GTA's past are well represented at Memphis' Beale Street Music Festival in May featuring Alice in Chains, The Black Crowes, The Black Keys, The Smashing Pumpkins, Hall & Oates, ZZ Top and much more. The Keys will also be playing the historic New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival along with San Andreas' Willie Nelson, Earth Wind & Fire from Vice City Stories and Gary Clark Jr from Walton's Bar in Max Payne 3.    For those digging the growing trend of bands performing full classic albums live, there are a few fun options amongst Rockstar alumni this spring. Radio X's Living Colour are celebrating the 25th anniversary of their debut album Vivid (including the seminal smash "Cult of Personality") by performing it top to bottom on their current tour. Vice City's YES have gone two steps further by performing The Yes Album, Close to the Edge and Going for the One to completion (though due to time constraints, they'll only be performing the first two at certain venues). Most interesting perhaps is the case of Queensrÿche - having parted ways last year, Geoff Tate's version of the band is currently playing their 1988 concept album Operation: Mindcrime in full. If mixing it up is more your speed, the other original members are on tour playing the hits - likely including "Queen of the Reich" from Vice City Stories.   Here's a wide variety of shows across the continents through the end of May - if you make it out to any or if you have others you know of, shout them out in the comments section...   Aerosmith ("Lord of the Thighs" on Liberty Rock Radio 97.8 in GTAIV) 4/28 Sydney, NSW, AU @ ANZ Stadium 5/01 Boondall, QLD, AU @ Brisbane Entertainment Centre 5/04 Melbourne, VIC, AU @ Rod Laver Arena 5/08 Passay, PH @ Mall of Asia Arena 5/11 Jakarta, ID @ Jakarta International Expo   Alice in Chains (“Them Bones” on Radio X in GTA: San Andreas) 4/25 Miami Beach, FL @ Jackie Gleason Theater, Fillmore Miami Beach 4/26 Tampa, FL @ St. Pete Times Forum (98 Rockfest 2013) 4/27 Jacksonville, FL @ Metropolitan Park (Welcome to Rockville) 4/30 Birmingham, AL @ BJCC Concert Hall 5/01 Augusta, GA @ Bell Auditorium 5/03 Memphis, TN @ Beale Street Music Festival 2013) 5/05 Norfolk, VA @ The NorVa 5/05 Concord, NC @ Rock City Campground 5/07 Bethlehem, PA @ Sand Bethlehem Event Center 5/08 Pittsburgh, PA @ Benedum Center for the Performing Arts 5/10 Boone, IA @ Central Iowa Expo (Lazerfest 2013) 5/11 Kansas City, MO @ Liberty Memorial (Rockfest 2013) 5/12 Maryland Heights, MO @ Verizon Wireless Amphitheater (Pointfest 2013) 5/14 Sioux Falls, SD @ W.h.

Download High Res Maps for Liberty City Stories and Vice City Stories

A few months back, in honor of the releases of Vice City Anniversary Edition for mobile devices and San Andreas on PSN, we made available high resolution JPGs of the maps for all three titles in the Grand Theft Auto Trilogy. Now with Liberty City Stories and Vice City Stories both joining the original trilogy as PS2 Classics available to download on PSN we've got high quality images of the maps that came packaged with the original games for you to download and print as well.   With some noticeable infrastructure differences from the three year gaps between the 1998 and 2001 layouts of Liberty City, like the ongoing construction of the Callahan Bridge for one thing, as well as the 1984 and 1986 maps of Vice City sporting some different destinations and details, it's worth having a handy print out of the lay of the land to aid you as you explore 20th century LC and VC.   Original Map Downloads (.jpg) Liberty City Stories | Vice City Stories As an added bonus, here's some high-rezzies of the front cover for each of the game's original manuals we dug up - each a testament to the journalistic standards and integrity of their respective cities...

The Rockstar collection of PlayStation 2 Classics on PSN adds two more chapters from the Grand Theft Auto series today, with both Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories (USA / Europe) and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories (USA / Europe) now available for download on the PlayStation Store.   From the dark, seedy and bustling streets of Liberty City's concrete jungle to the glamorous and hedonistic metropolis of Vice City in the 1980s. Two towns, each brimming with limitless delights and degradation, where anything can happen... If you missed one of these two Stories when they first came out, or are ready to revisit Toni Cipriani's '98 rise to glory and Victor Vance's '84 tale of Vice - you can now pull them down digitally to your PS3.   Liberty City Stories and Vice City Stories are available for $9.99 / €9.99 / £7.99 each.

Liberty City Stories and Vice City Stories Coming to PSN Next Week

Next week, look for the collection of downloadable Rockstar classics on PSN to be expanded with Toni Cipriani's and Vic Vance's chapters in the Grand Theft Auto saga - Liberty City Stories and Vice City Stories. LCS and VCS now join other Rockstar titles from the PS2 era in the PlayStation 2 Classics series that can be downloaded and played on PS3s.   Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories The streets of Liberty City are in turmoil. Warring mafiosi vie for control as the town begins to self-destruct under waves of political corruption, organized crime, drug trafficking and union strikes. No one can be trusted as Toni tries to clean up the mess of the city's chaotic underworld. Deranged hit men, morally depraved tycoons, cynical politicians and his own mother stand in his way as Toni tries to bring the city under Leone control.    Forced to fight for his life in an odyssey that will shake Liberty City to its foundations, Toni must use any means necessary to secure his place in the leadership of the Leone family in a town up for grabs.   Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories Vice City, 1984. Opportunity abounds in a city emerging from the swamps, its growth fueled by the violent power struggle in a lucrative drugs trade. Construction is everywhere as a shining metropolis rises from foundations of crime and betrayal.    As a soldier, Vic Vance has always protected his dysfunctional family, his country, himself. One bad decision later and that job is about to get much harder. Kicked out onto the streets of a city torn between glamour and gluttony, Vic is faced with a stark choice - build an empire or be crushed.   This pair of tales from Liberty City circa '98 and Vice City circa '84 respectively will be available for $9.99 / €9.99 / £7.99 each.   Also recently released and now available from the PlayStation Store are the first two entries in the open-world street racing series Midnight Club. One of the original PS2 launch titles, Midnight Club: Street Racing features open city racing across NYC and London, while Midnight Club II lets you compete across LA, Paris, and Tokyo. PS3 players can also get the latest entry in the Midnight Club series - Midnight Club: Los Angeles - as a full game digital download on PSN.   Stay tuned for word on more Rockstar titles coming soon to the PS2 Classics collection.     Previously: Vice City Now Available on PSN Bully, Midnight Club 3 and Red Dead Revolver Now Available on PSN Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Now Available for Download on PSN - Watch "The Introduction" Grand Theft Auto III Now Available in the PlayStation Store
