Amazing Fake GTA IV Box Art

17 posts in this topic

Posting fake screenshots is something normally limited to times of slow news, but this fake box art for Grand Theft Auto IV, made by SlimTrashman, is so good even sites like IGN decided to post it. Although made 3 weeks ago, it wasn't until QJ posted it this weekend more or less thinking it was real that it became big news on gaming sites. Others realised it was fake, and earlier today QJ posted again, confirming what everyone already knew.

The box art itself is shown below, along with the Xbox 360 version. You can read more about how Slim made these by visiting his DeviantArt page, where he claims it took him between 6 - 7 hours to complete. But then it is probably the best fake box art you'll ever see.

Nice, he would have used real people and images and vectorized them. Nice, not easy, but for someone with experience like him, it wouldn't have taken that long. The women on there for example is from TV show 24 I believe. Not sure about the rest, never the less, very nice and pretty darn amazing. Nice find Chris.

Wow, really rather impressive.

I think that the Black dividing lines are a little thick though. :P

Who knows though? Could be a whole new theme and not Pic in box.

Yeah, nobody has ever been able to get those black lines 100% correct.

Yeah, that section is a little dark, but I think thats intentional.

Also, did Slim Trashman actually make this himself? It's just, on the page on dA he lists the creators of the sections of the image, he must of just placed them together I think. Still neat, but yeah, thought I might point that out.

The boxart looks realy sweet, It looks like the real GTA IV, especially with the cartoons on it.

Err...how can it look like the REAL GTA IV if we don't have any screenshots nor a trailer yet? :P. I think you mean it's what you imagine it would be like, right?
