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.
If you are an artist, our current art contest might interest you. It has prizes up to $100 and is about drawing with traditional methods.
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!
