With ID like that watching over your work, you`re likely to examine your own style and become even better at becoming better at pixel art(Yeah, as if you`re not damn good even now! )! Btw, your character has always been one of my fav avatars to gaze at dA!
well, i wanted to have a ninja as my character , so i draw a ninja with the original outfits of a ninja . why purple ? i tried the standard black , but it was hard to see the black part around his eyes,i tried a lot of colours but i finally liked the purple one.
the name : tatsumaru is the name of one of my favorite characters of a game called (Tenchu) so i just picked "Tatsu". kezu : was randomly chosen.
