Twi'lek history has always been fraught with conflict. They are often born into slavery and unable to escape, but one of their few freedoms of expression is to dance. This twi'lek, though fraught with pain, anguish, and anger, she is able to dance her story. She gave up her arm to her craft, but most of all, she is able to escape her storm and her dance will be her own
Melina Sapiano. Nerdy Oil Painter. Oilmancer Her works follow the movement of realism with a dash of impressionism and a large peppering of geeky subjects. From Thor to Star Wars and Warcraft, the Astral heavens especially inspire her. The fantastical nature of galaxies and clouds are a continual theme. When coupled with a human figure or the organic such as flowers, the soft nature of these subjects dull the cold harshness of space while not dimming the wondrous colours or chaotic beauty in the background. Melina’s themes are mythical and rooted in fantasy and science fiction, focusing on the beauty of nature and the human figure. She enjoys gaming, reading and comic books which displays vividly in her oil pieces. Melina does various personal projects hoping to illustrate for fantasy games and books.
