Right, so, once again I found something I wrote and have close to no memory of writing... I kind of like it because it's simple and cute and I don't tend to write like that... Though I'm not really sure what it was for, why I wrote it like that or what I was thinking. It's a mystery... “Dragonfly! Mr. Dragonfly!” A little girl called out as she ran after the dragonfly she called to. “Please wait, Mr. Dragonfly!” She was almost in tears “Aren't you tired yet?” Her pleas remained unanswered. Needless to say she was frustrated but, continued onward. Until she took a sudden slip in the mud. She

Thanks so much for the favorite on my piece of Kuro! ^-^
I'm glad you liked it~! <333

Keep up the art!
I really liked the way you colored it! It's done in a way that caught my attention as soon as I saw it. It gives it a really interesting vibe. And the clothing design was really cool. Not to mention you really showed the characters personality! The only things I'd change would be how he held his weapon and how his hair is blowing (it goes the opposite of the smoke.) Ah, sorry about that! I'm also interested in the character's story. You said that he constructed his arm with debris but what about his eye? I really do love him!! You've got a really nice style and I'd love to see some more of your work! I'll check through your gallery first chance I get!

Hahaha, my art's really not that good. Though I draw way more then I post. 
Also, thanks for the llama.

Wow~! I really appreciate the feedback! (I always appreciate tips)
I did notice that his hair was blowing the wrong way, but it was after I had gone too far to fix it.... D: haha.
And yeah.. he is holding his weapon kind of funky. lol Oh well. x3
Thank you sooo much for the encouragement!! It means a lot to me! I'm still trying to find my style, but I get closer to refining it with every piece. (I've never been good at clean line art, so I always have a slightly messy look.)

Ah, with his story... Well I discovered this contest kind of late so I haven't had too much time to think about all the details behind his character yet. Me and my sister were brainstorming about ideas for his eye (do you have any?). 

Thanks for the watch too~!! <333
Hahaha! I was a bit worried that you might get upset at me for giving you feedback when you weren't asking for it. Aw, that must have been so upsetting, you're working hard on a piece and then you realize you made a mistake but you couldn't fix it. At least it wasn't too major, I'm sure most won't even notice it. My mom was passing by when I was first looking at it and said that it looked awesome(she really liked the coloring too). My family really appreciates most art and we all drew at some point in our life(though I've only seen one thing my dad did and my mom was into fashion design so, most of her stuff was just sketches...). On the bright side whenever I run out of room in my sketchbook they go running out to get me a new one!
For the weapon, it can be pretty hard to get the character to hold it right at times. I'm not good at it myself. 
I think everyone is constantly trying to find and improve their style. What I've seen of yours so far you seem to be very good at showing personality, pretty nice clothing designs and I just really like your style!
I find sketches and the slightly messy look to look really cool though.
My art is no where near your level.

Well, I don't read or watch a lot of sci-fi settings so, I might not be the best choice in asking.
Well, in the setting it's in a apocalypse. Kuro is a scavenger who built his arm out of debris.
1)Since he's shown some skill why not say he built it himself as well.
2)Maybe it could be related to when he lost his arm. He doesn't seem to be the type who would know how to stop the wound(of losing an arm) from killing him by his self. The person who helped him could have given it as a gift and disappeared.
3)He could have sought someone to build it and put it in for his own reasons.
I'd also imagine that it might have some extra functions such as seeing further or something. Kind of like Rentaro Satomi from Black Bullet. Ah, but I don't know too many people who know of that series so, you might not know what I'm talking about... In the series he has his right leg and arm replaced after losing them, he mostly fights with martial arts and a gun but has terrible aim. Later on in the series in order to become stronger he replaces one of his eyes for a fake robotic one to help improve his aim dramatically. For more about the actual story:…
Do those ideas help any?

Hahaha. I did say I wanted to see more of your work! Of course I'd watch you!
