GTA IV TRIBUTE

Journal Entry: Sun Aug 16, 2009, 10:38 PM


Ok so the plan for my next piece is a big GTA IV montage.. The whole image will be based only on the people in GTA IV.. I was thinking Niko will be the main focus point (of course) then maybe Kate and Roman next to him and everyone else around him such as Packie, Dwayne, Brucie, Vlad, Dimitri, Little Jacob, Elizabetha... and so on.. haha maybe even Eddie Low haha!

I've been playing through the original GTA IV storyline for the 3rd time and I'm loving it more than ever! So I really feel the need to do this Tribute for all you GTA IV fans!

The main reason for this Journal is that I'd really love to hear everyones input..
Remind me about certain points in the game that you'd love to see in this picture! Such as the kiddnapping of Gracie.. She could be hanging over Packie's shoulder with her mouth stuffed or something..

Let know some of your ideas.. This will really help me to make this 100%..

p.s. I'm also adding the characters from the DLC's too, like Johnny, Luis and maybe Huang!
It's going to be HUGE!

Thanx guys!

GTA IV: Ballad of Gay Tony

Journal Entry: Mon Aug 3, 2009, 5:08 AM


Hi just letting you all know I'm about to start on my new piece.. I think most of us have been waiting for the new GTA IV downloadable content! It's going to be AWESOME :D

I'm going to do the usual think and focus on the main character Luis Fernando Lopez, I was thinking a car chase in the club area of Algonquin. Luis will be hanging out the window doing a drive-by shooting at the car behind (distant).

I think i'll add alot of chaos to this one, kind of like my old one patrickbrown.deviantart.com/ar…

I'm thinking of making it a 'night time' theme and show of the lights and neons of the city and club life!

Let me know if you think this will work, I always love to hear peoples input on things..
Also feel free to throw me some more ideas, or maybe you know a bit more about the game that I haven't heard yet.. It all helps ;)

Thanx
-Pat

Prototype or Red Dead Redemption?

Journal Entry: Mon Jul 20, 2009, 10:44 PM


I'm about to start another pic now.. But I just can't choose between doing a pic on Prototype or Red Dead?

- I wasn't a huge fan of Prototype but it was pretty fun.. And I've had hundreds of comments saying "DO A PROTOTYPE PIC" haha!

- I'm so pumped for Red Dead though, I love a good western game. I think Rockstar will do an awesome job on it..

Please throw me in the direction you want me to go..

Haha for some reason I know what you guys will say ;)

On Holidays

Journal Entry: Thu Jul 2, 2009, 3:25 AM


Just letting you guys know I'll be out of action for two weeks.. No artwork will be in the making through this time.. I'll be on work holidays and the only comp I use to do my art is my work computer (in my spare time of course ;)).

BUT when I get back I planning on going crazy with art.. Here's some pics I'm thinking of doing:

- GTA IV: Ballads Of Gay Tony
- Red Dead Redemption
- Fallout 3 (agian)
- Prototype
- A NEW Grand Theft Auto Legends (a long way out though)

Just things swirling in my mind WAITING to burst out!!!
Haha anyways I can't wait till my holidays start on Monday..

Thanx

.: Your title here :.


Hi everyone, Just letting you guys know I'm still alive haha!

I've been way too busy with a big job lately but on the side I'm doing a pic on inFAMOUS! One of the coolest games I've played this year.. I must say it's WAY better than Prototype..

I'm really happy with how this one's going, It's really boosted my motivation alot.. Which is GREAT! Keeps me going ;)

Anyways I hope to have it up on DA within the next few weeks :)

Thanx
-Pat

p.s. I haven't forgoten about Red Dead Redemption.. The sketch is all done and ready for DIGITAL WORK! I think i'll work on inFAMOUS first though..

Plus in the very near future I'll do a pic on the NEW DLC for GTA IV, Ballads of Gay Tony..

Hi all, I know I haven't posted any new art in a while.. I'm actually still working on the album artwork commission.. It's taking up the majority of my time these days but It'll be done by early June..

I've also got a little something going on the side.. Rockstar Games are currently working on Red Dead Redemtion, a wild-west game.. It's going to be so awesome! Like GTA only western 1900s :D

So i'm going to do something on that :D it might be a while till you guys see it though.. maybe a few more weeks!

Anyways just letting everyone know whats happening ;) I'm also sooo keen for the GTA IV dowloadable episode! Still to be announced! You'll definetly see a pic on that :D

Thanx

Ahh I've been finding it hard to get the time to do any pics! The only computer I use for everything is my work computer, so when I've got some free time here at work I do my art..

But these days my job title has been changed from Designer, to designer/scanner... I've been given almost double the amount of work so it's a bit hard to find time.. I KNOW, I KNOW.. I'm getting payed to design the Newspaper, not my art! But I'm just worried I'm going to loose the things I love the most with this change... I loved coming to work.. now it's not the same..

Ah well, I'm sure it'll work out!

I was so excited to hear that actor Jason Statham (Death Race, the Transporter) had seen my artwork I made of him as The Transporter!!!

Apparently he liked it, Haha how cool would that be to get a signed copy.. Ah well! Thought I'd let you guys know, sorry but I'm just stoked to hear that haha ;)

Also, more good news.. The hip-hop company G Unit (same guys who handle 50cent) want me to work for them, doing artwork for album covers and website design.. And I think a game :D

I'm so pumped, It's not official yet, I'm just waiting to hear back from them about some questions I asked, before agreeing to it..

Anyways wish me luck, I might need it :D

Ok just letting you guys know that I've deleted my last deviation of Chinatown Wars, because I had problems with the last.. But I've re-submitted a new one to try and fix it..

So for those of you who've faved it before, you might have to fave it again because of this... But thanx to everybody for the comments and your more than welcome to leave a little something there for me ;)

Thanx

Can anyone help me?

I don't know if I'm being paranoid but I submitted my latest piece of Chinatown Wars last night.. And when I came in today it was like as if no one got the notice of my submission.

I think only people can see the art if they happen to come across my gallery..

Does anyone know how to fix this? I think it's something to do with the options in the artwork submission settings..

Help?

Ok so I've started my new pic on GTA: Chinatown Wars..

I'm just so pumped about this I can't wait to tell you all about it.. Plus I'm bored and about to go home!

It's going to have alot of perspective! Huang Lee will be standing in the middle of an intersection somewhere in Chinatown, I'll have an explosion behind him and a whole heap of police cars parked around Huang. While  all the police are aiming there guns - shivering behind cover.. A couple of police will be closing on on him..

Basically Huang will be facing us holding his guns while chaos happens behind him.. Kinda went for the hardcore angle! LIKE 6 STARS :D

Already got Huang drawn, I'll start the background tomorrow ;)

Later..

Yep, I'm considering it!

I just got a comment from a fan asking if I was gonna do a pic on this game! I never really thought about doing one, BUT NOW! I'm pumped..

I'll come up with something different than ever before I think..
I haven't actually played GTA: Chinatown Wars (the only GTA I haven't played ;) ) but I might even lash out to get a DS just to get this game.. Looks pretty cool for a DS game.. I mean COME ON.. IT'S GRAND THEFT AUTO :D

Has anyone got any great ideas to boost my motivation?
Since I've never played it I don't actually know much about it, It might help having someone who's played it to tell me what they'd like to see in an image :D

Any ideas for a scene would be great..

THANX

I'm about to start sketching Johnny Klebitz (the main character of this game)...
BUT before I do I'd love to hear what you guys would like me to come up with..

I was thinking of drawing Johnny on his bike (Hexer), with a baseball bat, taking a violent swing at another rider.. This will be based on the 'street races' from the game.. DAMN I LOVE WHACKING BIKERS OF THIER BIKES!

There are so many options to come up with;
- Street shootout
- Gang war
- Arm wrestling
- Cruising with the gang
- Biker clubhouse scene
- Shooting down a chopper
but just so you know I really want to focus on Johnny because it's like a 'Character Introduction'.. So I don't really want a distant pic.

What would YOU like to see in this pic? :iconoo-plz: I'm stumped!

Just letting you guys know I'm still here!

I haven't been slack or anything, I've just been on 'work holidays'.. And since the only computer I use is my work computer I couldn't do much haha!

I really need to get a computer at home! I think I'll start saving, then I'll get the net and play GTA IV online with you guys :D HELL YEAH!

Anyways I'm back now, had a great holiday! I'm about to start working on my sisters wedding piece.. Then I'll probably start doing a pic of The Lost and Damned! I'm picturing a pic of Johnny Klebitz on his kick-ass motorbike with a baseball bat :D Like he does in the races (for those who've played the game)..

Keep an eye out for me ;)

My sister Bernadette is getting married in December, so she's asked me to make a big portrait picture just like this one I did a while ago of me and my girlfriend.. patrickbrown.deviantart.com/ar…

I'll make the pose a little different and maybe the scene, but this should be interesting :D They're going to get it made into a flyer/brochure that will have all the information about the wedding on the back ;) Basically it's an wedding invite that will be past on to our friends and family..

Anyways just giving you guys a heads up about what will be coming..
I think after that I will do a massive pic based on GTA: Lost And The Damned :D

Hi I just couldn't help but let everyone know my next big plan..

I thinking of doing another Grand Theft Auto piece with all the main characters from each GTA release.. You might remember the old one I did.. patrickbrown.deviantart.com/ar…

The new one will have these extra two new characters:
- Johny Klebitz - GTA IV: The Lost and the Damned
- Huang Lee - GTA: Chinatown Wars

And of course all the other main characters!

All I'm trying to do now is come up with how the scene will look.. I've done the Poker game scene.. So I might even just go with a street scene, maybe like a movie poster, kind of like Left 4 Dead did with their game posters..

BUT I'm open for suggestions...
Any ideas?

I've got a 4-page PS3 Magazine article to work with.. And some work for GTA-Series.com so I'm pretty much all set with artwork for a while!

After that I'm really keen to work on some fresh artwork! Maybe something like a Movie Poster of me and my friends surrounded by Zombies :D

Anyways, Just letting you guys know I'm back from my holidays and keen as mustard!

Hey just letting you guys know I'm keen again.. I'm feeling good and I'm ready for more artwork :D

I'm currently doin something a bit different, It's a Dark/Angel chick (no not the Jessica Alba series) haha.. After seeing Max Payne I really wanted to do something like the creatures in the movie.. I loved the MASSIVE wings and dark/gothic feel to it ;)

We'll see how I go..
