What would old GTA characters look like in games today?
The artist Hossein Diba has published a number of pictures of well-known characters from the GTA series on his ArtStation profile. He does not focus on the protagonists of the current GTA 5, his focus is on the pixel faces of the past few days.

Hossein Diba has turned other popular characters into razor-sharp 3D models on his profile. On his YouTube channel, you can also find some videos that give the story of how it came about and provide further insights. You can check out some of his GTA creations in this gallery :
If you now feel like diving into the old realms of the GTA world again, we have good news. The PS Store offers classics like GTA: San Andreas and GTA: Vice City for the PS4.
