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
Beside the artworks, you can also read the personal opinions regarding doom, specific enemies or the complete series of almost all the artists who participated in this art tribute and dedicated their time and talent to make this happen.
Its quite an honor for me to work with them. My own part is just the hosting of the website, writing and designing the articles and organize the whole thing. But the respect belongs to the artists.
Our next and very ambitious anniversary tribute will happen in December 2014 and be about the 20th Anniversary of the good old Playstation. The target is to get around 50-100 different PSX games illustrated including the most popular games like MGS, Crash bandicoot and Tekken 3 but also the not so popular ones like Tomba!, Bust A Groove and Gex 3D.
The artworks for the Doom tribute are almost all in high sizes up to 4k pixels and should be useable for desktop wallpapers etc. If you use them for anything on your own websites etc. please don't forget to add the links to the original artists and their dA galleries.
Question: Did you play the original Doom, and did you play it through?
update, wow! we got a lot support through articles on Eurogamer, Kotaku and over 40 smaller websites from all around the world!
