HitoshiAriga's Profile Picture
Artist | Professional | Varied
I am a professional artist working in Japan. I draw manga and picture books, and I also contribute to the gaming industry.

I am very happy to have this forum in which I am able to share my artwork and my thoughts with the English community, an open and relaxed opportunity I never thought I'd have.
My English skills are quite limited, which means I rely on my friend Kwibi for almost all of my English communications.

I wanted to take the time to properly explain my limitations with English, and to mention the fact that I have to prioritize my work in Japan above all other artistic ventures. Although this means that my participation on DA will be sporadic, and that I won't be able to keep up with or reply to all English comments, I hope you will continue to support my efforts here on DA.

Again, I am very happy to be here, and I feel lucky to be surrounded by so many friendly and wonderful people who have stopped by to view and comment on my work. Thank you all so much for making me feel welcome here. It is because of people like you that I am able to do what I do, and it is for you that I work as hard as I do.




Whoa, now I'm getting ambushed by all kinds of clever questions! Maybe I shouldn't have said anything at all? ;)
When we were working to release Gigamix in Japan, it took a long time to get it all together properly and I was grateful for everyone who showed excitement over it. With this new project, I hope I can count on everyone to once again be patient with us as we work to produce something that will delight you!

The one thing I hope you'll all believe is that I love Mega Man with a passion!
... even if most of my tweets lately have been about Pokemon. (lol)

I promise I will make announcements as soon as there is new information I'm allowed to announce! Until then, I hope you'll all stick with me!

I just saw "Hitoshi Ariga" in the credits of SNES game Illusion of Gaia.  Was that you?  I love that game!

Just out of curiosity.  Are you still working on the secret project?  Or has that been cancelled?

Dear Mr Ariga. I hope you'll continue Klonoa in your free time some day.

Hey Mr Ariga, I was wondering if you could ask Ken if I could eventually help with designing A few future Pokemon. It would be an honor.

Hey there! Have you ever considered asking Archie comics about doing some work on their Mega Man comic series? Like maybe a variant cover or some artwork for one of the stories?

Thank you for your Jawa Star Wars comimcs Mr.Ariga. They're the cutest interpretation of Jawas I've ever seen!

Also, my brother's favourite Pokemon is Pangoro!
