This seems like it'll be a wonderful story, if a bit bittersweet. The art is absolutely lovely, too. Got a question, though.
A short musing on life themes between a machine and hatchling trying to solve life's biggest questions.
I figure that the kid is probably the hatchling, but what do you mean by "machine"? Is the mysterious man a cyborg, or a robot? I'm really curious. :D

Finally at version 1.0: White Fog

Which one would I let go first?

Glad you're feeling it as of now! *applauds euphorics* You'll just have to find out xD *throws super contrived reply to dodge the question* No, I can't reveal much as this is a KN and relies heavily on the story being told, so can't reveal much about it's most mysterious character. I will say that you have the hatchling part spot on though!

@euphorics Look at all that praise *V* Bask in it, bask!

Very interesting, are the characters re-nameable? I'm assuming he main characters name is
"Patch"
although i could be wrong. The story is pretty interesting and unique. The story doesn't turn me away, it lures me towards your project, i would call the story more or less heartwarming, reminds me of a few games or films i've seen where someone takes someone who is in need of help under their wing and makes them into their apprentice or sidekick.

Higher...than to fill that one desire to make it

No, their names will be revealed during the course of the story, though! Good guess ^^
Good eye ehhhh Really should have renamed the file but it's nothing major so~
Thank you so much, glad it's giving off this impression! I hope it lives up to your expectations!

In other news, the sole BG is about 80% at the moment! We are also, defiantly, getting two commissioned pieces thanks to ROCKYIII. Word count is keeping up as well. Expect a big update this weekend or the next in terms or art and story count.

Uhh, I hope this helps you out a bit. :)
The background: The coloring style would fit right in with the sprites. :>
The three objects in the back look a little bit too detailed compared to things in the foreground. Try making it "fade out" by having a light blue glaze over it? (Very much like how mountains look like from far away.)
I'm not too entirely sure what that strange rock formation is. It looks a little bit strange near the end, though. (If it's not supposed to be entirely curvy, it would be nice if the rocks had a non-uniform pattern, rather than a straight line as if they were perfectly aligned.)

Boy sprite: It's very colorful and saturated, which I'm quite jealous of. :P
His neck-shoulders look a little bit strange. It could be because they're so small, but then again, I have no idea how old he is, haha.
The neck does seem a little bit too long, though. Try shifting his head down a bit and seeing if it looks better or more strange. :/
Now that I'm looking at his mouth, it disturbs me slightly. Does... he have two rows of teeth, and then his tounge is underneath...? I-I can't tell.
The hat looks a little bit flat, but then again, the style seems generally flat. Just pointing it out, though.
Outlining the shade on his eyelid makes it stand out and also makes me think of it as some sort of strange mole? You should probably un-outline it.

@chocojax:

dYING A LITTLE INSIDEkdlfkd-
To be completely honest after reading this I ran around the house going "NOOOOOOOO-" for a while before composing myself to answer this, haha otl otl;; This was really, really helpful though - thank you so much!!!
Ugh, tbh I made a terrible mistake and spent forever detailing the objects in the back - until I realized I had to make them fade out but didn't want to because I'd spent so long on it ;_; I actually did paint over them a bit with light blue, but I guess it wasn't enough arghhhh;;
Hahahaha- It was actually somewhat referenced from a photo, but yeah, it was bothering me a lot too and I couldn't quite figure out why! When you say end, do you mean the bottom of the rock formation, or the edges, or..?
His age was a bit ambiguous from the start, so I guess that accidentally carried over into the drawing, ack otl;;
I've also always had a problem with long necks whyyyyyy-
AND THAT MOUTH. DANG IT ALL- that was another thing that was bothering me for forever ;___; OHGOSH I WILL FIX THAT IMMEDIATELY, THANK YOU.
I didn't understand what you meant by the style being flat at first, but I think I get what you mean!! @@ It was half a stylistic thing and half laziness, haha...;; Still need to fix that hat though, thank you!
Ohgosh, the outline thing made me a little sad otl Cannot unsee the mole now omg- I'll change that immediately too!!

TL;DR I WILL FOLLOW YOUR ADVICE, THANK YOU SO MUCH. <333

Haha, that happens to me too! Although, my reactions have calmed down after a while, haha.
"Hahahaha- It was actually somewhat referenced from a photo, but yeah, it was bothering me a lot too and I couldn't quite figure out why! When you say end, do you mean the bottom of the rock formation, or the edges, or..?"
Umm, here's a really bad example, but an example nonetheless. (link)

"I've also always had a problem with long necks whyyyyyy-"
Haha, I have a problem with long necks too.

"TL;DR I WILL FOLLOW YOUR ADVICE, THANK YOU SO MUCH. <333"
You're welcome! Glad I could help. :>>
