Hello, i am Reinhold Hoffmann (formerly known more as GBK), gamer since 1988 and the guy behind Game Art HQ and FGE..and yes i am the guy on the right
On Deviantart i founded multiple groups
Over 7100 Members since March 2011, one of the biggest and most active groups related to fan art on deviantart. Related to fighting games like Street Fighter and Beatèm ups like Final Fight.
There are art contest and art projects like Tributes to Mortal Kombat organized there on a regular base. Alone in 2012 around 1000! artworks were created for contests and projects for FGE.
the dA group for my website Game-Art-HQ.com fanart.game-art-hq.com/
Around 5000 Members since September 2011. Dedicated to extraordinary drawn fan art of videogames, home of multiple art projects and contests. The big art projects like Link's Blacklist were written about on multiple international websites from ZeldaDungeon to Kotaku and Chip
the biggest dA group related to Mortal Kombat, currently almost dead because no new MK News/Games were released since Mid 2011.
The group dedicated to the famous meme which helps artists to see and show their improvements trough time
In Summer 2011 i created my website Game Art HQ.com, a site about official artworks created and published by the game companies and also for extraordinary fan art and cosplays by deviants and also people from other communities.
More than 1400 artists are featured on Game-Art-HQ.com www.game-art-hq.com/ now including popular talents like Artgerm, Genzoman, Esau13, Francisco Rico Torres and many more.
Around 15 fan art projects /tributes have been done or are in the works for the website, hundreds of artists joined my contests and art projects. over 1300 artworks were created for the art contests and projects (March 2013)
The website is currently getting around 2300 unique visitors per day, trough feedback i know that artists are getting visitors trough Game Art HQ.
I am on a good way to reach my goal to create a platform for visual art similar how djpretzel archived it with overclocked.remix. it will take years however to make fan art and game art hq something which can be compared with his site. I do my best!
