    1. Who are you? How did you become active in this media? Why? When? Who taught you? Tell us your story around this media.
    I've come to maybe obtain the purple, Sprite Team Nash always had a nice ring to it but I've always been a master of one trait so I never applied. I'm a forgotten name in the community, sorta like a myth or a local legend. But I've played MapleStory for years and still do on private servers. I first got into animating when I saw Makani get animated by Tate since then I've been hooked. No one taught me I'm self-taught, observing my work and comparing it to others. Asking myself does it look good, if not change it. I also take inspiration from anime as an inspiration for my spriting-shading style although it is still a work in progress.

    2. Tell us anything we need to know about your future behavior in the team. Why do you want this position? What are your plans to improve the team? How dedicated are you?
    I'm looking to work with other spriters and learn, outside of hanging around Karasu and theWind, I've always been by myself when spriting which isn't really great for growth. Why do I want this position? Well to aim for something and if I miss my shot just readjust. What are my plans to improve the team? Well, collabs and showing off the true craft of spriting. Pretty dedicated since I set a new goal for my own personal projects.
    3. Show us 5-10 of your best work. Don't come with 5 weapons or 5 templates only. The more variation, the higher your chances.
    Unfortunately I don't do much outside of that haaaa, but I don't mind attempting if challenged.

    And the sequences that I made for animating

    4. Add as many thread links as you need, that contains your best critique and comments in the sprite section.
    Just came back so that isn't really happening I don't have much of that or anything that I can think of

    Your work definitely demonstrates that you're not new to spriting and you have skill in spriting weapons and sequences. However, I would like to see a little more variety as well. You do great line work, but shading is something that can be improved and is an important skill to have. For our sprite team, we're focused on those who are able to do pixel art that can also make sprites as well. You show a lot of potential, but unfortunately it's going to be a no for your application. I'd love to see any improvements you make, especially with shading, in the future because you definitely make good work.
