Current Game Art HQ Contests and Art Activities

Art Contests
GA-HQ Contest - ENDED!
The contest ends on Friday (8th November) night 12 PM
Screenshot like self drawn illustrations like the ones above are the topic of this new Game-Art-HQ art contest
Due to other projects like Link's Blacklist being ongoing now and artists being working on it or the Final Fantasy tribute,  this contest starts right now and endures till wednesday the 6th November  
Recreating a screenshot with the own artstyle as seen in the megaman fanarts by Pertheseus  and the Street Fighter III one above is something complicated and needs time and creativity, i guess that not only the results can be some great looking and unusual illustrations of video games, but also be a true challenge for participating artists.

rules: 1 entry per artist, no strong violence, no nudity, no fetish stuff, its up to you what kind of a screenshot you use as reference and also which game is totally your choice.  If



Art Activities

This project has seen two rounds now, and will continue in summer 2014.

The 20th Anniversary of the Playstation which was released back in December 1994 in Japan.
The target is to get around 50-100 different PSX games illustrated ranging from Ridge Racer and Crash Bandicoot to Persona, Chrono Cross or Spyro the Dragon.


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.
The Playstation Brand /Console series celebrates its 20th Anniversary next year in December and i bet the most of you have some good memories of games on the first Playstation console.

From the first games on the console like RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRiiiiidge RRRRRRRRRRacer ...one of the favourite games of Kaz Hirai ;)
and following hits like Tekken, Battle Arena Toshinden, WipeOut, Twisted Metal, Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, Metal Gear Solid and of course Gran Turismo to the last big hits like Resident Evil 3 in 1999 or Final Fantasy IX in 2000.

Every game can be claimed by up to 3 artists

This project started on the 25th October, the absolute deadline is the 1st November 2014.

13.02.2014 - 42 different games are claimed by 52 artists currently!


We got a ton of visitors for Link's Blacklist, and this Idea sounded to me like it could be an awesome art gallery as well and be a better choice than to organize something for multiple consoles.
