What is Game-Art-HQ & Rules

Game-Art-HQ is a closed group currently, if you want to become a part of it, write a comment or send us a note and we see if we can invite you

Game-Art-HQ is a Video Game Art Community founded in 2011. It is this dA Group and where our art collaborations are hosted and where you can see a growing Video game Character Database

Our art collaborations like Link's Blacklist and others were featured on many popular websites like Destructoid, Eventhubs, Game Informer, Kotaku and many more.

In this group on dA you can see recent submissions as well as selected and requested video game fan arts in the Featured Folder. We are also holding 1-3 Art Contests per year. Prizes are funded through ad revenue on tour Website as well as through Community Members that donated to the cause through Patreon.

To read more about our current art collaborations and contests, visit:

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.

Rules and Guidelines for submitting art to :icongame-art-hq:

No Nudity and Fetish Stuff is allowed

Only Videogame Art gets accepted here. This means, your submissions need to be related to a game clearly. A Batman fan art based on Ben Affleck as example has nothing to do with something like Batman: Arkham Knight.

High standards. Standards are not easy to describe when it comes to art. The best way to see what we consider great enough for this group is to have a look at the artworks in our Featured folder. Submissions with characters on a white background have rarely a chance, we look for fully colored art including backgrounds.

Around 10 Art Judges are looking up the submissions, submisions are getting accepted if at least 4 of the art judges accepted them.

Redesigns are welcome, OC's however not since this group is all about offficial game characters.

We don't accept submissions that were made for the game related art contests hosted by deviantART and sponsored by the game companies.

You can also follow the founder, :iconreinhold-hoffmann: on Twitter and support the community through Patreon (Funds are used for nothing but art contests)

Since you guys requested one of my paintings, perhaps I can join the group, too? I'm not particularly proud of the painting in question, and I'd like a chance to make something better than that that would be welcome here instead if possible.

Such modesty! Gotta say, I had a look through your gallery and think you have some fantastic art. :D If this ( is not the best that you can do, then I can't wait to see what you submit next!
But in all seriousness, I can understand the feeling of not being proud of what you can currently do, in terms of art (this is me 24/7 so yeah, I feel ya). Keep at it, and welcome to the group!

Thanks, though it's probably less modesty and more being overly critical of myself. I see half a dozen flaws in that painting that stand out to me like sore thumbs. Link's face looks awkward, the horse's rump is tilted too far to the left to make sense, the grass looks super flat, etc. I just feel I stumbled too many times on this particular painting. 
TheUltione Featured By Owner 8 hours ago  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I can sympathize with that; to me, all my mistakes stick out to me a lot as well.
If I were to look critically at your painting, then I can totally see the mistakes you've mentioned (Link's odd face did seem apparent to me, just not enough to ruin the painting). I would even add that the two front legs on the horse are pretty awkwardly placed and the anatomy is a little off on them. Maybe the flowers are sticking out too much to be natural and not swaying enough with the wind but that's more of a nitpick.
Honestly, though, it's great that you can look at yourself critically like this and know where you need to improve. But it's also good to assess what you did right, as well; I think you did pretty good on this painting, overall. :) You've nice attention to detail + colours.

Heya, I am the one who requested your BofW painting yesterday and am inviting artists that accepted my request a day (or two) later, the invite is sent right now, I hope our Legend of Zelda Bestiary Project "Link's Blacklist" (… ) or the Pokemon Gen II Tribute (…) might interest you, we have relative few artists here that use traditional tools
CrimzonLogic Featured By Owner 9 hours ago  Student General Artist
Thanks, I'll check those out. I assume the pokemon pictures in that journal are the ones already taken and not just examples?
Reinhold-Hoffmann Featured By Owner 9 hours ago
They are all the ones claimed and submitted by artists that are a part of our community since a good while and participated in the Gen I Tribute last year but "new faces" like you have the chance to grab each of the 100 gen ii Pokemon on the 2nd April or later, each Pokemon will get 2 illustrations just like last year (you can see the gen I tirubte here… to see what our project looks like on our website)
