Definitely clearing up and is quite cute. Gakuto, explained from older entries, is a character from an original NARUTO net story called “OH-TEN” (皇天). I’ve sketched him various times and made his hair complex as I look for a style similar to illustrations from the “LEVEL-5” studio. A friendly youth.
Still unsure about eyes. The symmetry and where it should curve is quite important; so is giving the impression of a child.
