January Art Challenge! Back to the 80's!

While our last art challenges in 2019 were about favourite game characters, portraits, or most recently the personal challenges for everyone who wanted to participate, this time it is about video game characters that were "born" in the eighties. From Pac-Man and Donkey Kong in 1980 to Alex Kidd, Super Mario...the Koopa Troopas, Simon Belmont from Castlevania, Mega-Man, Samus Aran, the Chocobo from Final Fantasy or  even Wolverine who was first seen in the game "The Uncanny X-Men" from 1989 actually.

Our Video Game History Project - Round II! (9/20)

The GA-HQ Video Game History Art Collaboration - Round II! We started this project in winter 2017, with the goal to tribute some of the most important, as well as our favorite video games, no matter how old or new they are, please have a look at the details of this big art collaboration! The idea is the following. After we had many art collaborations and challenges that had their focus on game characters or were celebrating the Anniversary of a game series, this one has the goal to do nothing less than to illustrate video game history through showing the gameplay or the story of the game with your art.

My Bio





Hi, my name is Gino, my life is drawing and creating characters in my little dreamed universe.

My favorite music is Rock. My three favorite songs: Iris(Goo goo dolls), Run (Collective Soul), The sweetest thing (U2).

I use to listen some anime music too.

I started this career because i love comic books (specially Marvel´s),

I like to draw a bit more than to paint. The mechanical pencil is my favorite tool for traditional, but i love to ink and paint digital.

Always wanted to be good at comic/realistic drawing styles, but i like animated and chibi styles too, and sometimes i try to do some manga/anime like stuff.

My greatest dream is to reach comic books world as a profesional penciler/colorist and publish my own characters.

I hope you to like my art, feel free to ask me whatever you want.

See you soon

*About commisions: I do commisions but send me a note to talk about, please.
