Isawa Koiso by MarioWibisono Isawa Koiso by MarioWibisono
"Fire speaks to me. What will it say to you?" - Isawa Koiso

The new Master of Fire from Phoenix Clan. Isawa Koiso is terribly powerful and utterly insane in the same time, a very complex combo for such a gorgeous psycho. She would immolate her own allies in an instant if that what it takes to incinerate her enemies. She is emotionally dead and fire is her only connection to warmth in the world, truly the ultimate pyromaniac.

Trivia: The man that is being burnt into crisp is her own yojimbo / bodyguard. She thinks he is hot... literally :P

I like every single details that you put in this work. The shadows created by the fire makes it so realistic ! The eyes are so intense thats it makes me shiver on on the though of encountering her. The way that you depict her makes her dreadful and yet she is attractive all at once. The simple finger on her lips and the her cloth falling slightly from her shoulder makes her so attractive. Definetly, you did a great job. It is a powerfull illustration of power. Keep on doing such a great art ! I would be honored to have such a great piece hanging at my home !


What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
97 out of 102 deviants thought this was fair.

It's a really nice piece and all the comments have spoken all the positive side already. Here's the other side with photo realistic perspective in mind:

Her face (lips, cheeks, etc) lacks subtle muscles definition making it seems a bit flat. Slightly add hints of muscle tones will give more definition. Same with her back. Ref photo, the top first photo:

The overall of the image feels sharp. Add some soft line in non-focus area will add more depth and add more focus in the important area.

Be careful with using pure black and pure white. Natural light condition is usually in between.

Best of Luck.

Lovely women are usually the most dangerous, because you don't expect them to extra-crispy-fy you.

I feel kind of bad for Isawa Shunryu, actually. Poor boy has not only been made one of the leaders of the Clan despite being only 13, but now he has to go through puberty while working, daily, with this woman :D

I saw this art on the cover of Book of Fire and had the burning question to know who she was.  I searched "Isawa" on a whim and found this.  Thank you for giving us such an impressive piece of work!
