About me:

Reinhold Hoffmann is my name..i am German am born in 1980. Played thousands of video games, especially Fighting Games.

I like to write about video games and their characters and organize art collaborations and tributes and sometimes art contests via my Website / Community Game-Art-HQ

In March 2014 I started working to add a video game character database to Game-Art-HQ.

It is still small but it is possible now (May 2014) to see when and where around 250 different game characters made their debut and some other details from them as well. About 10-20 more characters are added per week including articles about them with official illustrations as well as fanart and cosplays.
You can find this growing database here

First of all, i hope a blog like this is okay since i am trying to win people here now for my own web-project.

Do you like to share your own thoughts about games and game characters online?

I myself sure do and also love to dig out the history of a game character..like how the mask of Baraka in Mortal Kombat 2 was a vampire mask before and the guys of the old Midway Chicago team changed it to look a lot different, eventually like their vision of a weird Outworld mutant.

Or the fictional preferences of a game character, like Zangief from Street Fighter wrestling with bears, how old Jill Valentine was in the first Resident Evil and so on.

Making screenshots of concept art shown in an old PSX game which is almost forgotten and  which was never published in an art book or done before by someone else for a website.

I search people who also just want to write down their own thoughts and feelings about what they like and dislike about a game character, the costume, the design of its character in a game and how a character developed through a game series.

There on Game-Art-HQ, a website which works as host for big art tributes and collaborations like Link's Blacklist or the 25th Anniversary of Street Fighter Tribute which i am organizing via deviantART mostly i am also writing articles /galleries about game characters..over 1300 currently with mixed lenghts. I try to dig out just everything i can find about a game character..but for me alone it is a mammoth task and i come forward but with every day only a tiny step.

I have articles there like this one about the Darkstalkers character Baby Bonnie Hood
with my own thoughts and that of a friend as well, on this article you can see what i meant with sharing own thoughts.

If something of all this interests you, just comment. I can basically use help on all aspects of game-art-hq. The website is tiny compared to dtoid, but it is getting a few thousand visitors on a day already.

I have a few ads there on the site, the revenue from them is used to pay the website hosting as well as making art contests possible from time to time like one about Capcom games currently
