The latest art project on Game-Art-HQ...as soon as that wonderful website is back online... (hopefully next tuesday)

.Link's Friendlist is an art collaboration where 30 Legend of Zelda Protagonists and Allies of Link were illustrated by over 50 artists

Upcoming Art Collaborations on Game-Art-HQ are the 5th Round of Link's Blacklist on the 15th June and two 20th Anniversary Tributes for the Tekken series and the first Playstation console. Both projects will be published in the first December week of 2014.

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 bit art colalborations and tributes and sometimes contests with artists which are also gamers.

These art tributes and my own website Game-Art-HQ are meant to tell viewers a lot about the games, it makes me happy that websites like dtoid, eurogamer, kotaku, eventhubs etc are writing about them.

Some of my favourite game series are Tekken, Mortal Kombat and more or less everything from SNK. I care a lot about character designs, storytelling and the music in video games.

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 150 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 fana rt and cosplays.
You can find this growing database here

what informations do you hope to find directly on google or on the first websites?

The role of the character? In which games he was?  Images of the character?

Profile informations given by the game makers like "Sagat is from Thailand, loves fried chicken, hates fish and is using Muay Thai as his fighting style"?

The fictional age of a character or when he first appeared in a video game?

Other development informations like how a character was developed, influcened by other characters, knowing who created the character?

Relations to other game characters, his friends and enemies?

I ask all that becausei am working on a video game character db and hoped some of you could help me on what types of informations should be there.

When i myself google a character i see the wiki's related to a game but those are often suuper long and have no summaries with all important details of a video game character in a short form which makes it sometimes more cmplicated to find a information than needed, with my own project i try to get as many details into the shortest form possible.
