Weekly Artist Feature: Qinni

Weekly Artist Feature: Qinni

Each week, we interview a different artist and share their art and featured answers. This week, we wanted to highlight the works of @Qinni, a beloved artist on DeviantArt who recently passed away. @Qinni was one of the first artists we interviewed when we started featuring artists. Her art has been instantly recognizable around the Internet for many years, and the impact her art has had on the online art community is immeasurable. In tribute to @Qinni, her quotes from when we originally interviewed her in 2016 have been included below. I wanted to be a "mangaka" (comic artist) since I was a kid, but always viewed it as a faraway fantasy because my parents were grooming me to be a violinist. When I was young, I was never allowed to draw at home, but I'd doodle on my notebooks in class and homework sheets. Ultimately, I think one of the reasons why my mom relented and let me go into art for college was because of the DeviantArt community and how much love I was given there. In
