Everyone should know by now that my favorite game gal is the lovely and muscular Akiko Daimon
. If you've visited my gallery, you probably have seen Akiko Daimon by Daikon
, easily one of the most popular pieces in my gallery and one of the few black and white pieces. I've always meant to get it colored eventually, and found a good candidate in *buuzen
. I liked his work on Akiko Daimon by Buuzen
, among other works he's done for me, and I asked him to try his hand on the Daikon piece. I think his colors really enhance the lineart, and will definitely seek him to color some of the pieces in my gallery. Hope you like it. Make sure to click download to get the full 1200x1600 version

contacted me today and shared some sad news. *buuzen
passed away on July 11 due to complications with pneumonia. It's a terrible tragedy to lose such a great artist and kind person. This may be the last piece he worked on for DeviantART before his passing. We had agreed to do a few more coloring commissions which will be left undone. Buuzen, you shall be missed. The world shall be a poorer place for the lack of your presence. Rest in peace.
