Kurogin's newest illustration doujinshi, titled NSXT and published for Comitia 92 is a far cry from the sci-fi illustrations of his Winter Comiket release Archive Illustrations. The mecha and magic girls are replaced for the most part by every day beauties in normal walks of life.

Kurogin (黒銀) wasn't an artist I was following, but I'd recently seen his work in Dragon Magazine for Chrome Close Chronicle so my interest was peaked. And it was extra lucky that Kurogin's C77 doujinshi was aptly titled Archive Illustrations which included primarily his color works from 2006 through 2009, so I was able to get a very extensive introduction to this artist's work.
