Priscilla grew up im­mersed in fan­tasy and science fic­tion, rarely see­ing the sun and mostly play­ing in worlds of the imag­i­na­tion. She started draw­ing prop­erly around the age of 12, when she dis­cov­ered role­play­ing and felt the ur­gent need to vi­su­alise her char­ac­ters.

Al­most 20 years later, not much has changed, though she rarely plays these days. “I pre­fer de­pict­ing char­ac­ters do­ing things or look­ing cool. But the most re­lax­ing thing for me to do is to paint fe­male por­traits – a ten­dency I jok­ingly call my ‘pretty women star­ing off into space’ theme!”

1 The Avi­a­trix “Done for SmART School with Dan Dos San­tos, the prompt be­ing ‘the girl/boy with the golden wings.’ I chose to do some­thing that I hadn’t tried be­fore and went a lit­tle dieselpunk.”

2 Now Cracks a Noble Heart “A reren­der­ing of an old, old sketch of old, old char­ac­ters dat­ing from mid­dle school. I kept com­ing back to it over the years, but my skills weren’t up to par to fin­ish it un­til more re­cently.”

3 Through a Bl ade Darkl y “Yet another SmART School piece, this one un­der the tute­lage of Donato Gian­cola; the only guide­line was ‘re­flec­tion.’ I ended up do­ing a new ren­di­tion of an old role-play­ing char­ac­ter in a cou­ple of her in­car­na­tions. No, it’s not Leg­end of the Five Rings.”

4 In the Dark­ness Bind Him “Done for SmART School un­der Dan Dos San­tos; the prompt was ‘the friend­ship be­tween a girl and a vam­pire.’ I didn’t do friend­ship so much!”
