, home of the artist MIRAIGARU, is up and running!


On this site, I’ll be posting my art portfolio (including original artwork and comics/manga, and fan art) as well as the work I’m commissioned to do for the games I’m involved in producing. Everyone, please look forward to the art from MIRAI! The “About” page (at the left on desktops and laptops, or under the three lines at the top right if you’re on mobile) will tell you about my art; I’ll try and keep it updated with my current projects as well. For the first announcement, I’ll post some trivia!

Pseudonym: MIRAIGARU (mee-RI-gah-roo; “ri” like in “rice”)

Real Nickname: Cloud — I have a character named Cloud, too! But we’re not related… eheh.

Traditional media preferences: Watercolor, gouache, pens & markers (like Copic & Tombow), colored pencils

Digital media programs: Clip Studio/Manga Studio EX 5 — I’ve used Manga Studio since the fourth version — I also sparingly use Corel Paintshop Pro

Hobbies: Video games, video games, video games! It’s what made me start drawing. Pokemon fan since I was born, love Sonic the Hedgehog, Persona 3 fanatic, lover of Kazuma Kiryu and Goro Majima. Don’t forget Smash Bros! Couch multiplayer FOREVER!

Other things: My family is my rocket! My mother is my editor and my siblings keep me (in)sane. Shout out to these dweebs! They’re my best frenemies!

I speak English, a little Spanish, and I’m learning Japanese. Hopefully I’ll be able to use it if I win the Silent Manga Audition, where my pen name is Shifter (like Shiftaria!)!
