About


Hello, I am Reinhold Hoffmann, the proud founder of Game-Art-HQ a website and community all about video game related art, culture and history.

Beside commenting on Destructoid and remembering Tuesday every week in a C-Blog I am building up a growing video game character database there on GA-HQ as well as organizing video game art tributes now since September 2011.

Around 1300 artworks created by gamers were made for thelisted below Art Projects among even more.

Mario's Blacklist
50 of Super Mario's enemies drawn by 50 artists, published on the 25th September 2014

The 20th Anniversary of the King of Fighters Series.
Over 30 of the Teams of the KOF teams were illustrated by over 40 gamers. Published on the 20th August, exactly 20 years after the Japanese Arcade Release of KOF'94

Link's Blacklist
This project started in June 2012 and was updated for the 4th Time in July 2014. It covers over 200 enemies and bosses of the Legend of Zelda series

These are only the last three of over 15 art tributes hosted by Game-Art-HQ,com




My lovely woman and myself, we are together now since 5 1/2 years and its still an awesome relationship. Awesome wonders happen, even to Hoffmann's ;)

Since three years I am organizing art contests around July-November, the 2014 one starts on Monday the 1st September and ends on Halloween.

The Theme: Scary Video Game related Fan Art. all kinds of visual art are allowed, digital and traditional drawings, photos of sculptures, 3D model art (must be own models, ripped characters models don't count) or cosplay art.

You choose the game, the setting, the characters, important is only that it is something scary. Not scary in a cute way like a nice King Boo from Mario World, but really scary stuff, yes gore and violence is allowed as well. Gritty stuff, morbid stuff, horror elements are all fine.

Everything from a really scary looking undead League of Legends character to Pokemons etc is allowed.


In this contest you can also add characters from non-video game media like Freddy Krueger, Jason or the Super Natural Winchester Brothers getting eaten alive by Kirby. This contest is very unusual for this group, I know, but after contests related to a specific art style, gender switches, Borderlands etc lets do something dark for a change.


Rules:

The submissions have to be new and made for this contest of course.
Violence and dark themes are okay this time, but as usual, no nudity, no sex fetish stuff as well.
Mention it in the description that you made it for the Game-Art-HQ Art Contest 2014, yes, art contests like this one will be an annual thing now for the group.
You can submit your submission (ONE PER ARTIST) to the GA-HQ Contest 2014 Gallery Folder from the 1st September-31st October
Thats all.

You can submit your entry to http://game-art-hq.deviantart.com/ which means you have to be a deviantART member of course.

I am sponsoring this contest with my own (hard earned) money with $50 for the winner and also $25 as the 2nd and 3rd prizes. 4th and 5th Prizes are 3 Month DeviantART Premium Accounts

Like last year, the winners will be decided through a point system by a jury of around 10 long time group contributors.

You can basically start creating something right now, but there won't be a folder for this contest until Monday the 1st September.
This contest will end on Halloween of course you have time till the 31st October 12 PM.

For any questions related to this contest you can just ask via comment here.

Greets, and much fun @ everyone who decides to join the contest


ps...just started.


This will be done by the end of September I hope. Mario's Blacklist totally kicks ass.
