Grand Theft Artists

If you have been hibernating for the last few months you would have missed one of gamings biggest releases of all time. This week Grand Theft Auto 5 was released. Based on the trailer it seems that GTA has came alone way since the last time I played it. 

This release is really exciting for me though, because it's another opportunity to admire the work of Stephen Bliss and Anthony Macbain, the senior illustrators for Rockstar's GTA projects.

The team has created a unique style which set the game apart from many others competing this season. Each of these illustrations could easily have been painted, replicating brush strokes and texture. I don't think I'll bother buying a game that glamoursises violence, prostitution and other criminal activity... but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate the art, right?
