Game-Art-HQ is mainly an Invite-Only DeviantART Community.
We are looking through video game related art every week(end) and are inviting artists if we think they are fitting as members of this group and might care about it.
We are one of the most active video game related art communites here and create art collaborations since 2011. Some of our projects like the Legend of Zelda Bestiary "Link's Blacklist" that are hosted on our site Game-Art-HQ.com were featured by popular websites like Kotaku, Destructoid, Dualshockers, Game-Informer and many more.
Beside Art Collaborations we are also organizing art contests and challenges almost every month.
If you think this group is something for you but you did not get an invite, you can participate in one of our current art activities still, which usually results with an inviation for you. Just asking "Can I join" won't get you an invite.
Unlike many of the other dA groups, GA-HQ is not just an recycle bin for random submissions, we care about this group and all of its members.
Game-Art-HQ is a Video Game Art Community founded in 2011. It is this dA Group and www.game-art-hq.com/ 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.

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
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. This also counts for MMORPG characters. Only official ones are allowed.
We don't accept submissions that were made for the game related art contests hosted by deviantART and elsewhere and sponsored by the game companies usually.
