STKStarbullet is a group created by Gisela Martins and Sara Ferreira, Portuguese artists dedicated to comics, illustrations and other creative media.

In no particular order, lets get to the introductions:


A mischievous fox born and raised in a sunny side country called Portugal. From a young age her attention was completely captured by anime but it would be years until she would have all her consumerist dreams come true so instead she drew and drew, striving always to become better at the one thing she was good at.
Other foxes didn’t exactly grasped her tastes, thought she was too obsessed especially with pretty boys (whatever that meant) and it was only much, much later that she had the luck to meet another misfit
animal, a Portuguese cat who shared her likes for anime, manga and pretty….desserts.


A savant cat born to show that curiosity doesn’t get kitties in trouble, it helps them become closer to their goals.That curiosity might have however discouraged others from approaching her, as she would prefer to bury her nose into books, watch anime and read manga than to get pictures taken as it has become so popular among cats these days (this cat in fact, hates being photographed).
She grew up to become a well rounded illustrator, concept designer and junior 3D artist. Her curiosity ever growing has made her recently step into web and application design and her one true love for japanese manga has found a rival in her ever growing love for korean manhwa. The one putting up and joining her passionate discussions about each style’s fortes is another misfit animal, a fox who now claims gimbap is just as tasty as sushi.

The dynamic duo has been working together under the name Shoot to Kill since 2005 and been involved with projects mostly in their home country for events as workshop teachers, television, illustration, self publications (doujinshi and others) as well collaborating with national publishers. Currently they both work together as freelance artists, daring to cross boundaries and incorporate whatever they can
learn in their works.
The fox known as Gi still loves her pretty boys but there is so much more out there to explore and the cat known as Sara still keeps feeding on data and enjoying her cat-existence including the 9 lives to fill up with wisdom and new experiences that art above all can bring her.

And of course there’s more, but for that, just keep an eye out on our links!

    Olá, nós temos um blog onde estamos a promover o nosso trabalho relacionado com Mangás. Gostariamos que vocês colocassem no vosso blog, na zona Friendly Fire o link para o nosso blog. Isso iria ajudar bastante a divulgaçao do nosso trabalho. Nós fizemos isso mesmo e colocámos o link para o vosso blog pois achamos que o melhor para promover o trabalho feito por portugueses é haver cooperaçao entre os vários artistas.

    Hello, I love your works, I was wondering if you could draw something for me and how much it would cost to do so? I want to start a small online store, but looking for a picture to go with it. Can you help me if possible? Please?

    Haha, as a Korean I’m very happy that someone thinks that Korean manhwa can rival Japanese manga. :D

    Olá, o meu nome é Argelita Cruz e vi no Facebook de um amigo o vosso sucesso como vencedoras do concurso de Manga Jiman 2012. Dei uma olhadela no vosso blog e gostei imenso do estilo do vosso trabalho. Sou muito fã de Manga e Animes e sempre quis trabalhar na área, infelizmente aqui em Portugal não encontro cursos nesta área, dado que resolvi licenciar-me em Design e Produções Gráficas para ter uma noção das ferramentas de Ilustração (principalmente). Gostaria de ir ao Japão e tirar uma nova licenciatura mas na área do Design de Manga e Anime, mas antes gostaria de adquirir maiores conhecimentos antes de entrar neste mundo. Estava a pensar em viajar para Londres e desenvolver as minhas competências na Ilustração e na Animação, perceber melhor como é que funcionam estas coisas, conhecer novas técnicas e melhorar os meus trabalhos. Vocês recebem estudantes como “estagiários, aprendizes”, neste caso?
    Eu escrevo muitas histórias mas o meu estilo de desenho ainda não é ao estilo Manga, pelo que fiquei pela escrita (por enquanto). Quero aprender tudo o que há para aprender sobre o mundo da Manga e do Anime. Poderiam ser vocês o meu “bilhete de entrada”?
    Obrigada pela vossa atenção.

    Random comment that might be unecessary. It just crossed my mind that I had commented WAY back in 2009 in a post about a BL game called Togainu no Chi made by Gi, mentioning that an english patch was in the works. Well the patch is out (dunno for how long since I just realised it myself). Just saying, if she is still interested in the game (though you guys may be already aware of this lol, if so sorry for bothering you). ^_^;

    Hello! We’re the ones wondering if this comment will be read now – since we took a TON of time to reply –
    Thank you so much for letting us know about that! It’s really great news and we are on our way to get our paws on the patch! Ehehehe!!!
    All the best to you! ♥
