We are a growing group of artists that loves to create art about the Video Games we played in our youth or right now  and combined our efforts to create big Projects that try to illustrate parts of the Video Game History.

We started with a small tribute to Battle Arena Toshinden in August 2011 by around 15 artists, now in 2017 there are around 20 of these Art Collaborations now with giant ones like Link’s Blacklist, a Legend of Zelda bestiary Project, a Mortal Kombat Tribute that illustrated all the characters from MK I-9, Anniversary Projects dedicated to consoles like the first Sony Playstation or Game Series like Castlevania, Super Metroid, Doom and Pokemon.  

Have fun to see our art there and learn a bit about these games and characters we illustrated in the Game-Art-HQ Video Game Art Collaborations!
