|Meet my OCs|
Kaizen is the Japanese business philosophy for continuous improvement.
...And that is what I aim to do---to continue to improve myself.
These are my own artwork. After several years of development, I believe now that I've finally found my comfort zone in being a Sai artist, utilizing the many benefits of the Easy Paint Tool Sai art program to create my digital artwork while also using Adobe Photoshop CS5 to add any final touches to my digitized masterpieces.
As of 2013, I finally found my artistic identity and have created six interestingly unique styles that truly personify who I am as an artist. But though I've gained a bit more confidence in myself as an artist, that doesn't mean that I'll stop there.
As artists, I believe that in order to achieve our full potential, we must constantly continue to grow, not just as artists but as individuals as well. We must always be prepared to challenge ourselves in order to further develop and hone our skills.
That is the journey that all us fellow artists must take. Although I may not know what fate lies at the end of your journey, curious reader, I do know what I hope to be at the conclusion of mine. As long as I breath, I aim to improve myself as an artist in order to fulfill my future goal of one day possessing the skills that I need in order to bring the colorful characters that roam the world of my overly-creative imagination to life so that they can share their stories and adventures with a world, who I hope will welcome them with open arms and will learn to know and adore them as much as I have.
Wish me luck folks!!
Lapis Lazili, the Water Angel

Sharing from my Tumblr
“…This is something that I’ve always thoughtabout doing but never had the time or even the drawing skills to do it…until now!Ladies and gents, I present to you the full Squiggle Teamconsisting of myself and my mascot babies: Sugar, Candy, Splat’R, Castell andCowpiggie Moink.
It started off with just the Squiggle Rascals at first but then I decided to toss everyone else into the mix. A little squiggly because it’s still Sketchuary but the important thing is that I’m satisfied with how it turned out ♥
Not only have I always wanted to draw the entire Squiggle Team together full bodied and in my 4Real art style but this is also the first time I’ve drawn everyone at their actual accurate heights. Not only that but I think this is also the first time I’ve revealed the confirmed ages for my mascot babies. So yiss, all in all I am just uber proud of how this turned out.
I don’t regularly promote my original stuff. I’m hoping to change that this year. I have so many interesting characters and stories that I’d just love to show to you guys but first, allow me to let you meet the first of my original characters: my mascot babies.
You better learn their names and get used to their faces because you will be seeing more of them, especially for this year. That I promise with a big passionate grin on my face…”
And it’s finished.
I said I’d do a better version of the original sketch I posted earlier on my sketch blog. This was a really fun exercise to do. I’m such a big fan of Steven Universe. Been so since the pilot episode first popped up on the internet. Lately I’ve been feeling the urge to do some fanart for the show including fanart of Larsadie. Lars and Sadie are two of my favourite characters from the show. I truly love their whole connection and it’s always a pleasure watching them act together on screen. I look forward to the episodes focused on Larsadie the most since I ship them so much. I’m certainly looking forward to seeing their relationship develop more; especially now as we’re officially starting to see Lars reciprocate the same romantic feelings for Sadie >u< GAAAAHHH! Cannot wait to see them become a pairing.
Yeah anyways. I wanted to do a little warm up of drawing these two together and I figured trying my hand at one of those screenshot redraw challenges would do the trick. Personally, I think they both look quite nice in my 4Real art style. Especially Lars. Sadie was a peach since I drew her once before but Lars—I’m very proud how he turned out. Very proud >u<
The art looks quite nice and it actually kind of looks like a real screenshot...y’know if SU was animated in my style, of course. =u=
What do you guys think?
All in all, I hope you peeps enjoy this new art and until the next squigglustration, toodles~
