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
I surely do and started the offical and awesome DRAW A GOOMBA Art Event of the Millenium!
If you have even the slightest sense of creativity and talent to draw something, and you like the scary and super mighty GOOMBAS from the Super Mario Bros. Universe and you are already on deviantART..than my litte contest there might be interest for you.
This is not about prizes and not about being the better artist, there are some small prizes but these will be chosen by a software, the level of the submission does not matter.
You can submit a Goomba to http://game-art-hq.deviantart.com/ , there is a gallery folder for this little art event.
There are some mighty epic submissions already, have a look at some of them!
ps: There will be a Game-Art-HQ.com Super Mario Art Collaboration in 2014!
