Here’s my piece for a Nintendo Charity Auction taking place tmrw. I sculpted Ness from Earthbound and I’m really excited to share this with you guys.

He’s 6 x 4, made with Super sculpey clay and painted with heavy body acrylic paint. I painted him in this traditional attire and he’s standing on the Onett emblem from Smash Bros. 

Online bidding starts April 25th to May 16th and there are a ton more beautiful pieces featuring characters from the Nintendo family such as Zelda, Pokemon, and Mario. All proceeds will go to the Morgan Center for Autism. So come check it out!! ( :

Here’s the tourney dude getting shot down by Sakurai when he asked to “balance the game”

BLOWN
THE
FUCK
OUT

Let me offer a perspective from one who sympathizes with and dabbles in the competitive Smash Bros. community.

*Ahem* Burn.

The unfortunate part here is when some anti-competitive players think Sakurai here is showing a dislike for his game being taken overly competitive when the real message here is Sakurai saying that there is much more to the design of a game, let alone the balance, than most non-designers(including many tournament-level players) even imagine.
