I think given enough time Kira will be among the best in the gfx and jr. gfx team.
I've seen him improve time and time again. His only weakness is that he doesn't have enough variety yet. We say he is too fast and i think this may be because he has stuck to the one style and hasn't taken the time to experiment with different things.
But we all have our own style that we prefer and can make in 2 seconds flat. The only difference is that we experiment as well. Kira hasn't done that enough. But i think he is trying new things slowly but surely. He is just trying to maintain his own style that he is confident with.
If there was another spot open for jr. gfx then he probably would get in, but for now he is trying to improve and show us that he can earn his way in.
Well thats my opinion anyway.
