Who's behind the project?

-A little space skeleton, the artist. He represents all art and drawing aspects of the project. He is always busy, and waiting for Star's and Hope's suggestions. While captain of the ship, it's hard to tell if he's the one in control.
-A very edgy buff goth girl with an attitude. She represents all the decisions that are taken with the purpose of progress, ignoring the logistics or the cons. When you see Zilsux grinding 24/7, you can thank her for bullying him to do so. As a pyromaniac, she is not allowed to have any flammable materials.
-A very gentle and understanding girl with an caffeine addiction. She represents all the logic and loving decisions of the project. From suggesting rest, to making sure no one focuses on financial gain over the result. Hope is the sweetheart of the ship, and the one responsible for those cute animals merch.
Who are the Mascots?
After the creation of the first OC, Nina, Zilsux started to draw Original characters exclusively.
This gave birth to the first wave of characters and stories.
Between these characters where the first versions of characters from Coloras Vivifica, and Corpsehall.
During 2015 , Zilsux kept drawing Original Characters in-between and during classes.
After drawing another brand new character, He decided to write an extensive backstory for it. This became the Character Zenalth and the first iteration of Coloras.
Unknowingly, This would become the first comic in Prysm Comics
history. Made by hand with a cheap eraser and a mechanical pencil.
This comic is currently not available for the public, but kept safe.
During the end of 2015 Zilsux started experimenting with adding colors to his works and growing quantity of characters, starting with coloring pencils.
Zilsux starts his collage education in Digital Graphic Design, with the goal to learn tools like Photoshop in detail, and move to digital artwork.
During this time, A digital version of Ninoshka Azalea is drawn, along a digital drawing of the Coloras Vivifica protagonist, Buttons.
Zilsux would also create a new character based on the story Coloras, named Kronaltas and created the second comic in Prym Comics history under that same character's name. This time using a new medium, a mix between Alcohol Markers and regular markers.
This new medium would mark the bases for Prysm Comics artistic style from that point on.
Zilsux creates new characters and fixes current ones, while at the same time committing to a more aggressive art practice schedule, drawing other types of art and fanarts as practice, but still keeping the artwork unique and original.
During this time, the quantity of created characters surpasses the 100 mark. Zilsux decides to remove unneeded characters from stories to lower the number of unique characters.
With a more comprehensive scope, the story for each character is revisited and written.
Many character designs begin to change depending on the story,
This will be a recurring event and a Prysm Comics unique touch, where characters are molded and shaped by the story, in a way, making the story the main character, and the characters under it, the result.
Prysm Comics is officially created. Soon after two comics are made.
South Knights #1, South Knights #2, and South Knights #3 where planned to be the beginning of the Ninoshka Azalea story, but at the end, only the first 2 of the planned 3 where released.
Zilsux realized that the artwork was too ugly and the story too messy. The rest of the year was spent in making the artwork cleaner and in fixing the story.
This would make the two released issues, non canonical, in preparation for the real release of Ninoshka's story under the name "Tranquility Bay"
Prysm Comics hits the ground running.
The first 3 Issues of Tranquility Bay are released, making it sells online and getting praise and amazing reception between readers.
Merch like stickers and bookmarks are released between issues.
PrysmComics.com starts offering free digital versions of each Issue.
Thanks to the good reception and praise, Prysm Comics gets ready to officially go to the public light and join indie comics events.
Tranquility Bay #4 and #5 are released, a long a brand new Comic called VoltBoy.
The sticker merch increases to new highs and with amazing reception.
Due to this success, Zilsux creates more merch like Magnets, Keychains, and more.
