https://twitter.com/aruru_dragon

Tried to create an entry for this artist. Was about to name it aruru because that's the name in the twitter banner however aruru is already aliased to aruruu (which is an existing character).

Was thinking of using aruru_dragon as the artist name but it might also be the name of her own vtuber persona. aruru_(artist) and aururu_dragon_(vtuber) maybe?

While I think artist is a bad qualifier, it's true many vtuber artists have their arttags qualified with it. Aruru_(artist) is too ambiguous though, so if you asked me, I'd use aruru_(aruru_dragon) for the chartag and simply use her handle, aruru_dragon, for the arttag.

This is not an artist's page and should not be used to identify him. It is acceptable to mention the author of the design (illustrator) in the character description when creating a character wiki page.

If I understand correctly, there is only a name, without links to pages.

The first thing in her bio, which you mentioned, is that she's one of those Vtuber artists. She apparently drew and rigged her model. Look at her posts, she says she's been drawing for years.

The profile for sawatari jun looks weird to me. Looks like it's two artists who use the same name and write it the same way. The twitter linked in the artist entry is private and the bio seems to imply they don't want to be a public figure anymore. The pixiv last posted in 2016, and in a very different style from the earliest media tweet by the account post #6861306 is sourced from. That tweet is from 2020. Their style has stayed relatively the same since. I find it difficult to believe they are the same.

In addition, their current name and twitter @ are different from what they used in 2021 (see this tweet), which seems to pretty conclusively show that these are not the same artist.

I just don't know what to call the new artist tag. They have no other linked media so all we have is the twitter name or the romanization of their twitter display name, which would be the same as the old artist.

Edit: There's also the possibility that they're the same artist as mawata0618, currently trying to figure that out as well.

It's probably a mistag because of the similar name, notice that the last kanji is different. I found some of their old, inactive and private accounts as well, but nothing about sawatari jun. I'd name the new tag sawatari_jun_(mawata0618) or keep mawata0618, considering their art was recently posted on that Twitter and to reduce ambiguity.
