Book Review: Ni0 Art Works: Nishi's Alluring Figures

Ni0 Art Works: Nishi's Alluring Figures - 14


Ni0 Art Works is one of the more risque artbooks published by Udon Entertainment. In terms of risque-ness, it's right up there with Sonicomi but I think the character designs here look better.

This 176-page hardcover features the pin-up art from Niθ, that last letter in the name is not "0" or "O" but this strange "θ" character. Anyway, I shall refer to him as Ni0 because it's easier to type.

Ni0 is famous for his fantasy female character designs, some of which are from Hyakka Ryoran Samurai Girls, Demonbane, Queen's Gate and more.

You'll see a lot of buxom female manga-style characters from first page to last. They often wield some sort of weapon and are dressed in skimpy bottom-revealing costumes, bikinis and occasionally posed in typical suggestive poses that you'll find in pin-up books. There's some nudity. Anyway, without nudity, this book's not safe for work too.

Despite the suggestive nature of the content, I've to say that the costume designs are fantastic. What amazes me always is how Japanese artists can come up with the endless variety of costumes for their characters. The colours are also very well done. Most, if not all, are digital painted.

A short 1-page interview with the artist is included, as well as the list of works featured. Right at the back of the book is a beautiful 3-page gatefold poster.

If you're into illustrative pin-up art, then this may be the book for you.
