since  around two years now I am organizing a growing and growing fan art community project / collaboration on my other dA Group Fighting-Games-Elite.

Like the name hints at already, this group is all about fighting games like Tekken, Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat and also Beat'em Ups from Final Fight to Dynasty Warriors. In April 2012 I started a project there which has two big differences compared with the other projects like Link's Blacklist here or the Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Tribute there.

It is not getting published on the website and the "quality" is much more varied. The focus of that project is to get more and more different fighting game characters drawn by group members, especially rare drawn game characters. There are over 20 submissions there for characters which had not even one fan art here on dA before and many of them are looking stunning great. So far, over 200 different fighting game characters are covered through this project btw.

Example submissions for the FGE Project

Now I thought, maybe we can do something similar here over the time, this would be an art collaboration for fun and for group members only and could be a growing collection of video game fan art by group members. It could focus on games or on game characters.

My part would be to organize it via journals, making rules and guidelines, sometimes providing ideas about what type of characters could be drawn as example and I am also offering to provide ressource material if needed.

There will most likely no coverage for this project on other websites like Kotaku, etc it would much more end up as a challenge for yourself, to show your dedication for a game or game character and to see rarely drawn ones coming together through this group. Submitted artworks would get their own folder for the project andI would also write a journal on a monthly base with the latest submissions to feature them in this group.

What do you think does this all found fun and interesting for you?

The FGE Project resulted in many quite awesome submissions, which made me doing stuff like this…

As much as I am happy about every Assassins Creed, megaMan or Mario fan art which looks good, getting fans to illustrate the not so known great games is more interesting and give me "material" to create galleries like that one there

I'm in, I love the opportunity to do some more obscure characters. This would be cool for discussions about older or obscure games and such, and I'd be interested to see what games I might not have heard of as well. :)
