This past weekend DieNasT Gaming hosted Fright to Fight Charity Benefit. The team did an awesome job all weekend raising money for Extra-Life.org. Together they were able to raise $1,650 by the end of the event!
Awesome job, DieNasT Gaming! Keep doing amazing things and keep playing games #ForTheKids! You can check out the Team Page here!
For this event, I started a Benefit Sculpture to be given away if the goal of $2,000 had been met.
Extra Life Benefit Sculpt
With this sculpture, I wanted to bring in the essence of what Extra Life is all about. So, I came up with the idea to have an idolic video game character protecting some kids as they played games. From there I went through several different character ideas but ultimately decided to go with Pit-Kun from Kid Icarus, also seen in Super Smask Bros.
Pit-Kun felt like the perfect fit for this project. Not only is he a kid as well, he has wings!
The wings worked out beautifully to portray the idea of protection. I didn’t want the piece to be just a couple of kids playing games, so I decided to find a bunch of Video Game items that either gave an extra life, or worked to prevent death within a game. With help from a lot of friends I was able to come up with, and narrow down, the items to a handful to use for this piece.
All of the individual parts are coming together nicely. The tiny couch I made it bright and fun, keeping the whole feel light hearted and joyful.
So far everything is ready for paint and some of it has been finished. I cannot wait to put everything together and take some pictures of what my mind created.
