Gold Best and FBBF4 in SM Megamall

I had some errands to do yesterday, and got to walk around SM Megamall for a bit. I’m happy to confirm that Gold Best and FBBF4 is available there! (。´∀`)ノ Powerbooks carried copies of FBBF4 while Filbars and National Bookstore carried Gold Best! It made me a little giddy to see it for myself~ (〜 ̄▽ ̄)〜 But I hope I didn’t scare the salespeople in the stores.

I bought a copy for myself since I can’t wait to see FBBFmanga in print. (>y<) I want to see if I need to fix anything for the next chapter too. Yay for more reading material! ☆*・゜゚・*(^O^)/*・゜゚・*☆

Gold Best Now Available Nationwide!

Nads: “What?! #GOLDBEST is now available nationwide?!”
Nads: “Why didn’t you say so?! This is something that my fans should know-”
Liz: “Assumer! You’re the only one who has fans? For Real?!”

I’ll probably run around bookstores later to see if this bit of news is really true, and I’m really excited to see this in actual book form! I’m not sure if going with the “no shadows” style is actually a good idea so…

Ah..! I can’t wait!!! ☆*:.。. o(≧▽≦)o .。.:*☆

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! (*´∀`*)
