SABMG is working on producing some Anime content. While our previous illustrations have not followed the Anime style of drawing, Sonise and I have both have been dabbling in the drawing style. We actually grew up watching a lot of Anime but continued to illustrate in our own personal style, but it’s no wonder that we would eventually venture back here.
I recently started drawing (or rather attempting to draw in Anime style) because of a sci-fi short story I wrote called “Society”. After finishing the story the mood and setting immediately suggested Anime style characters. I didn’t know how to draw anything that looked like Naruto, Attack on Titan or Death Note so I took to Pinterest’s library of artwork and learned there. Sonise on the other hand is a natural talent and probably drew everything from memory. Her artwork has the red background on this page. She’s great like that. As you can see, she nailed it in most of her images. I on the other hand believe that while I did not do that bad of a job, still feel like there’s plenty of room for improvement. Check out the videos I put together.
“Society” is about a group of 22 to 30 something year olds living in a Socialist society. It’s a utopia of happiness where there is no debt and everyone lives comfortably. The Society is free from disease and ailments; nonetheless there is universal healthcare with no bills to pay. For every woman, there is a man. No child is without a parent. There is an abundance of food! It’s all peachy-keen. Or is it? I’ve painted this ideal picture of comfort so far but what am I hiding? What’s the catch? READ THE STORY! It’s all in there in Volume 2 of SPACE ALIENS, BAD MOTHERS AND GUNS!
Getting back to the Anime style of “Society”, I plan on further developing the story and the characters for our readers. Sonise will also be introducing new stories in Anime/Manga format! We are super excited about this! You can join in on our excitement by continuing to check back here for updates and following us on Instagram @officialSABMG or @space_aliens_bad_mothers_guns!
