It took me one full day to figure out what to say about Qinni's untimely death. I followed her since 2008 on DeviantART, when I was just a little kid who wanted to make art for a living.
I was lucky enough to exchange a few comments with her as we watched each other on dA, but sadly I didn't know her long enough. What I can say is that I admired her work, and it inspired me to become a digital artist at first and to choose the artistic career.
When she started to go in and out from the hospital, I followed her battle silently. I always considered health issues to be very personal and sometimes every word by a stranger is unnecessary.
