I am Mr. Hoffmann, the grandson of Reinhold Hoffmann and a gamer now since around 1987.
Some of my favourite game series are Mortal Kombat, Borderlands, Tekken, King of Fighters, Monster Rancher, Bust A Groove and basically too many more to count them all.
Beside gaming, I like writing about it and video game culture.
You might have heard or read about http://www.game-art-hq.com a website which features over 15 art collaborations by gamers and is also the home of a growing video game character database.
Currently we have a League of Legends Crossover Project in Progress, are working with Overclocked.Remix on a big tribute for Final Fantasy IX and are mostly expanding the database sector which covers around 1500 video game characters now.

Since last 2012 i start a new year with a 2 month longing art contest in the deviantART group Fighting-Games-Elite which is now the biggest fighting game related community there with almost 8000 members including artists like Stanley "Artgerm" Lau, known through his art made for Street Fighter III 3rd Strike online edition as example.
This year it is about Capcom's fighting games and beat'em ups with the exclusion of Street Fighter and Darkstalkers games.
All others like Rival Schools, Star Gladiator, Capcom vs. SNK, Marvel vs. Capcom, Red Earth Final Fight, Power Stone Alien vs Predator, Punisher, etc. are allowed.
Something like Ryu vs Morrigan is okay as long as the artist makes it clearly related to CVS or MVC
