|Game-Art-HQ is an art community with four main targets:|
1. Creating Art for Video Games
2. Offer multiple motivations and reasons for group members to create video game related art of all kinds and attempt to make it both a challenge for them to use fan art as a way to improve their talents and use their own creativity to create something great.
3. Giving a spotlight to video game characters and games that are not among the usually drawn ones.
4. Feature the Artists and their works and make video game fan art something more popular and respected.
We try to reach these four targets through art activities here in the group that are art collaborations, challenges or contests that are mainly not about the most popular video games. Art for not so known games is totally supported. Video Game Fan Art is featured here in the Group as well as on our Website www.game-art-hq.com/ .
This group is invite only. Asking to get invited won't get you anywhere.

What is Game Art HQ?
Game-Art-HQ www.game-art-hq.com is a Mix of a website for galleries and articles which are featuring artists and their game related fan art. The galleries are sorted by games and game characters. There are also interviews with artists , be they hobbyists or professional, drawing, rendering, photographers or cosplayers.
Forum, forum.game-art-hq.com/index.ph… (22.02.2013) the main communication is done here in this dA group though.
The other part of Game Art HQ is this group where art contests and art activities like tribute projects are organized. Every couple of months art contests are hold here, sometimes they are about fun and a specific game or game series, sometimes they are about a specific kind of art or an art style instead.
A relative unique highlight of Game Art HQ are the art projects we organized here.
From art tributes for anniversarys like the 20th Anniversary of the Kirby series or the 25th Anniversaries of Mega Man, Street Fighter and Final Fantasy in 2012 to "Link's Blacklist" a project about the many enemies and bosses of the Legend of Zelda games.
These art projects are also a feature of Game Art HQ.com additionally to the art, games and game characters are described there with screenshots, official art and of course descriptions in textform. Often they are accompanies with small interviews with the artists or their own descriptions of the images.
Game Art HQ was founded in June 2011 by Reinhold Hoffmann who is no artist and no webdesigner, but a guy with a lot ideas and a gamer since 1988. Like everyone he gains more and more experience and so the site as well as this group got bigger and better with the time. Currently (December 2012) GAHQ.com is getting around 2300 unique visitors per day. The first big art tribute, the Mortal Kombat tribute by 80 artists was seen by over 100000 visitors.
Articles about Projects like Link's Blacklist, and the Anniversary Tributes were published on websites like Kotaku, N4G, Chip.de, Eventhubs and a ton of Game Series related websites like Zeldadungeon or CavesOfNarshe.
GAHQ is a project to support Game related Art and show the world a beautiful part of Video Game History and Culture, illustrated by dedicated artists, gamers, people..however you want to name them.
