Wow this is super gorgeous. Your smooth and graceful tokota style (and the robot too of course!) is so unique and pleasant to look at!

I'm sorry but we don't allow stick figure/silouhette handlers, if it is a robot, please add more colors/details etc to make it more solid as right now the "body" blends in with the background.

?????? On my screen, the handler has reflective shading, 12 distinct joints, visible plating and a piston on the neck, a glowing eye, and is very blue and does not blend with the background which is mostly greens and browns.  I spent several hours on her and she is not anything I would consider a "stick figure" or a "silhouette", and I am honestly not sure what other details I could add to her.  Could you please clarify what you mean? Is it the reflections in her lower plating? (I am not trying to offend, I just seriously don't understand the comment.) :(

For me its the fact that that seems mostly one colored, and unless I zoom way in I can't see those details you are talking about, the image size makes them just appear to be "lines" or even almost a sketch of a human form. I think I'd probably need some color to make me feel like there is more "depth" there though to be honest it could all be a trick of the mind thing and I don't want to sound harsh.

(Apologies for the delay, is there a time limit on this sort of thing? I've been dealing with some health issues and this has been very low-priority.)

You're saying you have to zoom in to see the details? That's odd, the picture is set to full-size in the options and it takes up a good chunk of my screen.  :?

Anyway, so the main thing is that you think she maybe needs a few different shades of blue, or maybe a little tiny bit of purples for better contrast? It is true that I was basically using the one color as a base and painting the reflections on top.  Problem is, the file is corrupted and it's very difficult to get it to save (it took me four hours to get a usable file to upload when I posted it - I distinctly recall this because it was incredibly frustrating).  Do you think it's worth bothering trying to "fix" it, or do you think there's a better folder for it?

If you want it to count for exploration you'd have to fix it, but it could to misc art if you don't/can't fixt it.

I found some time to wrangle with the file, so I changed the locations of the highlights, tried to emphasize the little bits of detail, and added a tiny bit of green.  Is this now acceptable?  If it's not I'll just stick it in Misc like you suggested.
