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

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.

Deviants

Back on the 30th May we started a different art collaboration than the usual ones, it was no tribute, not meant to be a challenge or even a contest.
Instead the focus was and is super simple, every group member can claim one video game character and create an artwork that is drawn or created with other methods, even cosplay would count. The only rules and limitations are that each game character can be claimed by only one group member.  The artists that claimed a character have 2 months to create and submit their artworks which are getting featured in journals like this one.

11 submissions were done in the first month, June 2015 but July saw a big increase which is the reason why this journal won't be the only one in August about the submissions. 23 super different game characters were illustrated by a mix of old and new Game-Art-HQ Community members.  And if you think this project sounds like an interesting idea, you are welcome to visit the journal about it and participate as well! The GA-HQ Community Art Project
These are the latest 5 submissions for the GA-HQ Group Art Collaboration, currently 30 game characters were drawn by 30 different group members since the project started on 30th May 2015.
YOU can choose a game character you want to illustrate for the group, every game character can be claimed by only one group member.
Only Game-Art-HQ group members can participate in this art collaboration. The game characters can be drawn, 3d modelled, crafted, cosplayed, it is up to your creativity how you create a fan art.
Every artist can participate in the project for only one time so choose your character very well. Every game or game character can be claimed. Including enemies, vehicles, bosses, protagonists etc.
You can also ask me like in the art challenges before and I will give you a choice between a couple of rarely drawn game characters.

The submissions of the last month are feat



Have fun having a look at the first 11 of the 23 submissions from July!

THE WORLD'S MOST POWERFUL POKEMON - MEWTWO by CHOBI-PHO
Mewtwo was the first submission in July and submitted on the 4th July by :iconchobi-pho: and also the first Pokemon claimed for the Project which means that over 750 more are available btw.
Toni Hoang Nguyen from Australia draws a lot Pokemon fan art in this style which looks very fitting to those characters I think!


The Evolution of Sweet Tooth by Playstation-Jedi
Just one day later we got the next finished submission. :iconplaystation-jedi: from the UK drew a really cool character that needs to return in a new Twisted Metal game if we will ever see one. Sweet Tooth is probably one of the craziest and scariest of all clowns in video games and Playstation-Jedi drew the guy in all his different designs he got over the around 20 years since the first Twisted Metal. Lets see if someone will claim Minion or Calypso as well.


Christie by SteveMillersArt
This is Christie from the Dead or Alive fighting games and :iconstevemillersart: drew her in June actually but well, I forgot to request the image and hmm did not feature it in the July journal. Sorry about that @ SteveMillersArt . Christie is an assassine in the DOA games and one of the few female antagonists there.


Mushroom Warriors- Daisy by wyvernsmasher
I guess everyone knows this one, Princess Daisy from the Super Mario series! She was drawn by :iconwyvernsmasher: from the UK who is a pretty new GA-HQ group member and thought about a Mario or Mushroom Warriors game which could be a similar experience than Hyrule Warriors and Princess Daisy could use a Baseball Bat as her weapon.
I like the idea, those "Warriors" games are always super fun. Am looking forward to the western releases of Pirate Warriors 3 and Dragonquest Warriors.


Eric Lecarde Poster by whittingtonrhett
Castlevania fucking rocks and I hope it will never completely die and Bloodstrained will be a worthy successor that will work as an inofficial Castlevania game.
:iconwhittingtonrhett:aka Rhett Whittington from the USA drew Eric Lecarde one of the protagonists from the relative unknown Castlevania: Bloodlines on the Sega Mega Drive.
Its one of the few Castlevania games I never played, and this fan art reminds me that I should finally do that someday.


Nyotengu-DOA by OneWingedAngel75
Nyotengu is the second Dead or Alive character that was claimed for the GA-HQ Project so far and she was drawn by :icononewingedangel75: from Greece, one of the first artists that participated in art collaborations organized by myself. Must admit that I played only the first version of DOA5 but Nyotengu looks interesting :-) Can she fly?


Sir Daniel Fortesque by CloudsDevourer
I think that this submission is a great example for the - in my opinion - best feature of this project. You can really choose every kind of game character, be it from a totally new game or a game that is almost forgotten now..like  - sadly - MediEvil..an action adventure series on the first Playstation that had the potential to become Sony's alternative to the Legend of Zelda maybe. This funny guy there is Sir Daniel Fortesque the undead main protagonist of the games.
He was drawn by :iconcloudsdevourer: from Poland who participated previously in some of the art collaborations on FGE but it was her first submission for a project here on GA-HQ.


Paul Phoenix by MajaMcGowan
Relative many fighting game characters were claimed in June and July, including one of the maybe coolest ones ever, Paul Phoenix from the Tekken series in his classic look from Tekken 3. If you ever played Tekken, you know this guy and hate his Phoenix Smasher Attack I bet :-)
He was drawn by :iconmajamcgowan: from Sweden who was invited by me just a couple days before in July after I saw this Kaldorei Priestess by MajaMcGowan artwork by her.
Its awesome to see so new group members getting active already :-)


E X E C U T E by Llewxam888
Decapre from Ultra Street Fighter IV was a new character met with a lot criticism to Capcom last year because a new character was hyped for the game for over a half year and the players expected more than just a clone character of Cammy White. Decapre is really fun to play though, different enough from Cammy and personally I found it fun to see one of the "Shadaloo Dolls" again after Street Fighter Alpha 3.  She was drawn by :iconllewxam888: from the USA.


Orianna, the lady of clockwork by AdrianWolve by AdrianWolve
Enough fighting game characters now, its time for the first champion character of the popular League of Legends MOBA in the GA-HQ Project. Orianna, the lady of clockwork is a pretty interesting character design I think and :iconadrianwolve:  from Spain did draw her very well.


FFII Leon by blackorb00
:iconblackorb00: is a longtime group member and contributor who created a lot of damn epic Final Fantasy fan arts. His submission for our 20th Anniversary of the first FF is the maybe biggest and most epic FFI fan art Final Fantasy 25th Anniversary by blackorb00 ever made. He claimed a very unpopular Fnal Fantasy protagonist for the project with Leon from Final Fantasy II. Its always fun to see that not so known characters are the first that are taken by Game-Art-HQ contributors while the popular ones are often taken by new group members and it takes much longer until the more known guys are taken. Like in the case of Final Fantasy anyone from FFVII-FFXV.


We got pretty new characters lke Orianna and Nyotengu claimed as well as 20 year old guys like Sweet Tooth or Eric Lecarde, protagonists as well as villains, enemies or even vehicles like the Vic Viper can be claimed in this project. If it is continuing like now we have a very interesting gallery by the end of the year that shows a big variation of video game characters.
