Feature #2 of many. For the previous feature in this series, see here: lazebe.deviantart.com/journal/…Update: Because I am reserving my journal only for these artist features (meaning I don't want them to disappear from my front page), I am going to post this for a requirement for a contest:
I (Lazebe) will be participating in a halloween contest which you can find here:

Disclaimer: None of this artwork belongs to me. I am simply showcasing it with the Artist's permission, and at a whim he/she may ask me to remove or change any of it and I will do so without question.
My goal here is only to help out fellow artists in the dA community
and generate more views/faves/comments/watches for them
because this community has been so good to me for as long as I have been logging onto here
and I'd like to return the favor.
(I do not accept points or otherwise payment for this feature,This:
if I feature you it's because you deserve the praise and I am aware of your work,
I will always ask for your permission first before I feature you,
though you may contact me to evaluate your gallery for you and decide whether or not I will feature you.
Because I look at your gallery does not mean I will automatically feature your work here)
If this image doesn't explain just how much of a badass Koikii is, here are some stats:
Koikii aspires to one day be a professional illustrator, graphics artist, animator or a manga artist
and she is well on her way to being able to choose any of those careers and maybe even have a side job as a translator with all of the languages she knows.
I am hoping for the best for this young artist.
Koikii is fluent in at least three of five languages that she is trying to learn (from my experience reading her comments at least, she may be fluent in all 5 by now for all I know!)
including English, Spanish, French and 日本語 and 中文 (and... honestly I don't really know what those last two were o_o)
Koikii is only 16 years old, proving that it doesn't matter how old you are: if you want to draw, then pick up a pencil and learn!
(Actually, you can also check out her really nice tutorials here)
".lease don't destroy our future:." by Koikii
What I like most about Koikii's artwork is that she is an artist with a clear sense of style that she is consistent and confident with.
Her artwork doesn't flux in quality andif you are looking for someone who you can count on to produce crisp, pristine line art with well-coordinated color schemes full of life
then Koikii certainly gets the job done.
"Peace" by Koikii
Peace, one of my favorites of hers btw, is a beautiful image that soothes the eyes.
The woman's hair cascades wonderfully over the surface of the water and it makes you wonder whether she's lying in a shallow pool or if she's floating peacefully in a lake or a pond somewhere.
The water is simplified here and I think it works well that she let the background fade around the image.
Koikii demonstrates here that she knows about composition and how to direct the eye of the observer in her pieces, something that many of us I'm sure, including myself, struggle to get just right."Korra" by Koikii
One of Koikii's more visually striking portrait pieces, "Korra",
a fan art piece obviously referring to the popular Avatar: The Legend of Korra series,
is one of the many pieces that showcases Koikii's smart way of dealing with facial expressions.
Not only that, but the lighting and the mood here (thanks to a charming, cool palette of colors) compliment the picture well and really give weight to the notion that a "picture is worth a thousand words".
Just imagine everything that could be going on in this scenario and you could come up with a thousand stories while staring into those mysterious eyes.
"Hinata Hyuga" and "Sakura" by Koikii
Two more examples of head portraits as done by Koikii. Even though she tries to be less obvious with the lines for her "Sakura" drawing, you can still see that same quality of work from piece to piece.
What I think is important to note here is that the first drawing has a bright background to contrast with Hinata's dark hair color while the second one doesn't need much of a background
because Sakura's hair is what contrasts with the rest of the piece. Well played, Koikii
"Shinobi Art Online" by KoikiiThe crossovers. This is why I also am a big fan of Koikii's work. Not only is she a good artist, but she also enjoys good crossovers.
Seriously, I think both shows would've been better if they would have crossed over like this
(oh, and Ino as Leafa/Suguha and Hinata as Asuna is just hilarious! ... and a lot less creepy with Ino too)
Thank you for reading through this artist feature!
Please take the time to go and look through each of these images again (and more that I didn't post here) in the way they should be seen: through Koikii's gallery.
Also, please comment here so Koikii can always go back to this page and see your comments.
If you are a human being, then you know that you like when others compliment something you've worked very hard on.
And I'll tell you one last thing about her, Koikii is definitely one of the nicest people here on deviantArt
and she deserves every ounce of attention that she gets for her wonderful drawings, animation
(I couldn't find any of it on her page, sorry I think she moved it or something!)
and the sincere comments that she gives to other deviantArt members,
no matter what part of the world that they might come from.
So, make sure to pay her a visit and follow her!
Trust me, you'll want to see how this girl develops as an artist because she is going to be tough to compete against in the job market very soon!
Jeez, there's a lot of young talent, isn't there?
