main qualifications to be on this list: 1) I have to
shoot with the model, and 2) they had to be in my top
traffic searches (e.g., people are still looking for
them on my blog). There are couple newcomers on the
list, like Carol, and a couple that got bumped.

After posting a series of svelte beauties, I am back
to model that could be considered the prototype urban
model: Miss Koi. Koi epitomizes the
cute face/big backside type model that urban
modeling has always been based upon. But for
some reason, I had some trepidation in posting
this. Like somehow it's not a progression of
what's been going on here lately. I'm not sure
why - it's a perfectly nice photo.
The only thing remotely "controversial" about it
is Koi's extra curviness. What do you think
fellow bloggers? I'd be interested to hear
others take on this.
So Miss Koi is one model I still get a lot of
hits on the blog for and a lot of requests. I guess
women built like Koi with a cute face just don't come
along that often. I still talk with Koi from time to
time via email and I'm pleased to report that she's
doing well and recently was offered a part in a
motion picture called "As I Die Slowly." I don't know
anything about the flick yet, but I do know she was
offered a leading part and accepted it, so look out
Miss Koi's images seem to always get a good response
here, and since it's tough to find pics of Koi out
there on the web, I see no problem with posting her
more than most models. This one is wallpaper sized, so

Sometimes a flaw in a photo can work to its benefit.
In this photo of Miss Koi taken By Doss Tidwell, the Hawaiian
Grass Skirt was obviously supposed to be evenly
distributed around her lower half. But as Koi
herself noted, it created a peek-a-boo effect
with the one her cheeks. *Sighs* That may have
been a mistake stylistically, but man is that
sexy! Sexier even than these shots we see just
like this of models with no skirt, oiled down to
I should also note that based on his portfolio, it
would appear that Doss has "the eye." There're some
dope models in his port. (Click photo below to
Just a reminder to all you urban model photographers:
make sure you keep an eye on your subject’s face.
Technically, you should be able to crop to just the
face and still have a good and/or interesting photo.
If you can do that, that’s how you know you’re
shooting a worthy model and you’ve taken care of hair
and make-up as needed.(Click second pic to enlarge).
You can reach Miss Koi on Twitter here and Myspace here. (There is no
Sorry for the inconvenience folks. I’m trying to come
up with a new and improved layout for the site.
Notice the new “search” feature. It may be a little
while before everything works right though. In the
meantime, enjoy these Koi pics.
This should help start the week off better. Miss Koi
is an avid Twitter user and she’s looking to up her
followers, so return the favor and make her Monday by
joining her here. Photo compliments of me

If you’re like me, you never get tired of looking at
this girl. Leave your comments and let Koi know what
you think - she reads this blog. Join her on Twitter and
you’ll find out there’s more to Koi than just
her great looks. (*Click to enlarge)
Let me apologize in advance to you Miss Koi purist out there -
this is not the best photo in the world. It's
soft on focus, but I still thought it was worth
posting, as women that look like this are worth
it even when the photo is not perfect.
I had a tough time with whether I should crop this
shot or not. I ultimately decided
not to crop because it incorporates
more colors (the sky) and makes the picture more
interesting. What do you think? Wrong decision?
I took the first pic (with the boxing gloves) a few
months ago, but Koi's been working out since then and
lost weight. Can you see the difference? I can. I
know it's healthier, but I hate to see that über
thickness go, lol. Catch up with Miss Koi on Twitter
Koi's the hottest model to hit the urban market in a
long time. Actually, she's been around for a minute,
but recently made a notable comeback appearing in Hip
Hop Weekly last month and on KING magazine's website.
