FBBF Manga Fan Photo by Manager

Source: STOP! In the name of LOVE! AMEN! (Anne Bernadette Castueras)'s Photos

I confess, I may have enjoyed designing the girls a little more than the boys for this manga. However, reality began to set in once I began drawing them for the manga since drawing long hair can be such a pain!!! ヽ( ̄д ̄;)ノ I had to draw most of Nadine’s hair freehand since it was so time consuming.

I think I need to adjust the art and text a bit for the book’s spine next time. I thought it would be ok, but from these photos, it’s still not perfect. (シ_ _)シ Argh~! I wanna see the book already!!! (o≧Д≦)o

FBBF Manga Fan Photo by Kristine

I don’t have my own copy of Gold Pinoy Manga Best yet, so I’m relying on fan photos to see how our book turned out… Leave it to Taichou to be one of the first few people to post pages from the FBBF Manga~ ☆ミ(o*・ω・)ノ

From the photos, it looks ok. The tones look clean, and choosing to skip the shadows made the pages look brighter than my usual works. Yes, not putting shadows on every single panel was actually intentional, and not due to time constraint. Since this was a fairly text heavy manga, I wanted the art to be “lighter” but still full of detail. This style is experimentally more shoujo than my other works, but I hope it’s still “me” anyway! (*≧▽≦)o .。.:*☆

Did anyone else get their copies? If you did, take a photo of your favorite FBBF manga page! I’d love to feature you here too! (*´∀`*)

First Look: FBBF Volume 4 Cover

When I first read “My Facebook Boyfriend… for Real?!”, I thoroughly enjoyed the first book, even though my Tagalog is limited at best. (o≧^≦)o I can speak conversational Tagalog with a mixture of English (and sometimes, even Chinese), but use uncommon words like lapastangan and pukol and you’ll see me reaching for my pocket dictionary.

I thought my contributions to the fandom would only be limited to fan arts… who would have thought the author would let me draw the cover for her 4th book? o(^^o)

“My Facebook Boyfriend… for Real?!” Volume 4 will be available at the Manila International Book Fair tomorrow in PSICOM’s booth! I won’t be able to attend due to some personal business, but please support the author! Here is a list of her scheduled appearances: September 19 – 21.

‘Til next time! *(*´∀`*)☆
