Cartoons and anime have been and are a big part of a lot of people's lives. They offer us grand adventures, fun, and exciting plotlines and storylines, unique, driven, and lovable characters. But have you ever wondered what the characters we all know and love would look like if they were realistic?

Shenoa Loewy had the same question. So they decided to put that to the test using artificial intelligence, more specifically an app called Artbreeder.

Shenoa told Bored Panda: "I've had an interest in anime for a very long time, but it was only after finding Artbreeder that the idea of making characters came to mind. I started doing it just for fun and made some pretty rough drafts. Once I got better at making accurate faces and hairstyles, I thought it might be fun to share them with others. This is when I decided to start my Instagram account and later my TikTok.

What really inspires me to make each character is how much I love the shows they come from. I love the different hair colors, styles, designs, and looks that they all have. It's really fun and challenging to try and bring those elements to life in a realistic way."

We got an interview with Shenoa and she told us more about her. She gave us a list of her favorite anime: "My favorite anime are Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood, Death Note, Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, and My Hero Academia." We can see the characters from these anime are all over her social media!

Shenoa shared how she chooses the characters for the A.I. edits and what her favorite thing about creating these edits is: "I choose the characters based off of what inspires me, mixed with recommendations from my followers. I like making characters I wouldn't normally do. My favorite part about making the edits is the challenge. I like having to figure out how to use the A.I. in new ways every time."

Shenoa told us about the most difficult part of creating these edits: "The most challenging parts are when I choose to work on characters I'm unfamiliar with, as they rarely turn out quite as good."

She also told us about the characters she couldn't do because they were too difficult or the A.I. just didn't want to generate them: "I'm still unable to make an accurate Meliodas from Seven Deadly Sins and Asta from Black Clover. However, I'm still working on them both."

Shenoa shares the process of creating them: "The process involves using the A.I. of Artbreeder to generate a portrait using images already in its database. Once this portrait is made, I edit it within Artbreeder, export it to Photoshop, and then add elements like headgear, clothes, and effects."

"I think programs like Artbreeder that are accessible to the public will only grow and get better. A.I.-generated art is still very new and the applications for it have not yet been fully realized. I see a lot of potential in small, start-up A.I. projects like Artbreeder, as they give anyone the ability to make amazing things," shared Shenoa when asked what she thinks about the future of artificial intelligence.

Shenoa tells us more about herself, her life, and her journey: "I'm a college student studying Biology and Literature at UC Santa Cruz. I've always had an interest in art and anime but didn't take the time to develop any skills in editing and online artistry until recently. I began making characters as a hobby during the pandemic, but began to love it so much that I continued until I had cultivated an audience."

"Go and explore Artbreeder and use the amazing tools provided by AI developers to make your own ideas come to life!"
