[Tooth & Arrows] Extra Life 2013

Tuesday, July 2, 2013

A new year, and a new challenge! I am a proud supporter and participant of Extra Life 2013, a 25 hour gaming marathon for charity, taking place on November 2nd. That’s right, a 25 hour GAMING marathon. Basically it works like any charity marathon, in people donate to support my “miles,” or, more appropriately, levels.

So, as everyone knows, I’m not just an artist and a writer, but I’m also an avid gamer. I have quite a few physical issues that stop me from being able to do most of the marathon things that come up for charity – bike rides, running marathons, etc. However, I AM capable of this.

In addition, I’m providing a little incentive for one random person who donates toward my goal of $150.

This is similar to to the popular “YCH” or “Your Character Here” auctions that have gone around the art sites lately. Basically, if you sponsor me (but not anonymously!), you’re in the running to game with me in a cell shaded color commission. Here’s the line-art – your character will replace the sketchy outline in blue.


And, to make it even more interesting, if I raise more than $500, the person who wins will also receive a 11×17 print of the artwork, absolutely free.

How will you find out who wins? Well, I’ll be assigning each non-anonymous person who donates a number, and then will be using a random number generator to pick the winner after donations close. The winner will be announced December 1st, publically on this site as well as every art site I’m a part of, then I will be emailing the winner to ask for a character reference so that the picture can be completed, and a shipping address (if the donation level qualifies – otherwise they’ll receive a high resolution JPG in the mail).

So get those donations in and get your chance at gaming with me forever in picture form! The widget will remain on both of my sites until the event is over so that you can track the progress at all times. But if you don’t donate, you don’t have a chance of winning, so please donate! These kids can use all the help we can give.
