This is Juana Inés de la Cruz. Born in 1651. Mexican poetess and playwright. Since childhood she was very curious, what led her to become a nun “to have the right” to study in a period women couldn’t do so. Her poems and plays are known for talking about women’s rights and present strong and clever female characters.
*In this painting she is 15. One year before get into the Convent.

New Steven Universe print! Learned some new painting techniques for this one (thanks to the resources and tutorials from Manga Artist Volume 2), and was entirely painted using Photoshop for a change. I’m hoping to sell this around some cons in the next few months.
