Update 2 - 24.09.2018
The first article s online www.game-art-hq.com/persona-4-…
We got 3 artworks now and all three are going to get their articles in the next days already.
The Project is directly linked at the top of Game-Art-HQ's frontpage!

It has been around two weeks since we started our next big art collaboration and we got over 20 excellent artists already that claimed some of the most popular games ever like while we also have a handful of the not so known ones as well.

A good couple more games were added to the list since over 20 were taken already, have a look, read the Project description and join this epic tribute to video game history!


~~~~~

The idea is the following. After we had many art collaborations 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.

The goal is to have illustrations that are not showing a group of characters, like all 8 world warriors from Street Fighter II as example but to show a part of the actual gameplay or a part of the story,


A few examples of what we have in mind:

Pokemon Stadium Mini-Games by YomiTrooper You Got Boost Power by retromegahero Banzai! by FirebornForm Mario V King Bob Omb by MrBFox
These four were made for our Nintendo 64 Tribute in 2016.


Allowed is every game of your choice if you participated in previous Game-Art-HQ project already. If this is your first time, please have a list at the games below. Each of them was an important step in the Video Game History and illustrations of them will help to create an awesome gallery that will feature your art as well as screenshots and a lot of info about each game to become an article that is a mix of art and information for the readers. The main gallery would be seperated into years when we have 20+ artworks /different games together.

This Project will be open ended and can grow with the time to cover more and more games. The artworks will be featured on Game-Art-HQ.com as well as here in the group with their own dedicated gallery and also a part of this journal which will be updated constantly.

Rules:
No nudity or strong violence, the artworks should be suited for work.
Everyone can participate, no matter if you are a member of our group already or not.
The illustration must be able to show the viewer a part of the gameplay or story of a video game, so we can use it to describe the game and its gameplay /story
If you participated in earlier projects, challenges, contests in this group you can choose any game, if you are new, please look at the list of games below.
The deadline: 4 months starting on the day you claimed a game. Means the deadline would be the 3rd january if you claim a game today.
Every game can be claimed by only 2 artists. Each game can only have one story related illustration and one gameplay illustration.
Traditional Art as well as other tools are allowed and welcome.
The format is up to you, but it should be bigger than 1350 pixels width. Thats the size that can be displayed on the website, see www.game-art-hq.com/persona-4-…
1 game right now per artist, you can claim a second game in January 2019.

Hello all, 
I am sorry I have to do this, but I have to back out of this collaboration I'm aware that I'm already past the deadline for my entry for Super Mario Kart.
I would have done it much sooner, but my laptop broke a while ago, and I haven't been able to get a replacement. I can't draw digitally at all until I get a new one, and that may not be for a while. This could not have happened at a worse time

Heya, yeah I removed the newer games since I saw that nothing from the classics before the nineties was claimed yet, and I hope to get a real collection of the first till the newest games together that were interesting for the whole industry and changed the developments in our hobby :)

NMS really went through a wild development..it will be fun writing about it, so yeah, go for it :)

I really want to do Snatcher, but it's such an obscure game no one will care, sadly. It would also be a rather difficult image, and a lot of time for little return.

In that case I guess I'd like to try Resident evil 4. I had planned to do that one years ago but just didn't really have the architectural skills.

:iconreinhold-hoffmann:

But RE 4 is fine as well, have only good memories of that game.
