Weheheh, it's still November 7th here, and I guess that apparently means that it's Pokeshipping day? Lol idk but I wanted to do it at least once because I mean it's a day when the fandom is supposed to celebrate right? Since I don't like participating in the fandom much anymore anyways haha... It's not like I do much else but make fanart so yeah lol...
Ugh, but I don't like making moody Pokeshipping pictures; I'd rather make happy ones, since I rather like that image of them. To be honest angsty Pokeshipping pictures severely annoy me. So I never have them crying over each other anymore, did you notice?!
I'd much rather poke fun at them; I have more fun that way and enjoy myself overall. <3
They had such high demands for her to get with Ash (since Pokeshipping was the only Ash ship at the time... That wasn't Yaoi), since they had so many hints towards romance. But unfortunately, they couldn't make them a couple, since it's a kid's show, and usually if there is romance in a kid's show, they have them kiss and run off into the sunset, thus ending the series. Danny Phantom is a good example of that XD And of course,
they couldn't end it, because they still had to market the new Pokemon games.. So they replaced Misty, and stayed away from romantic hints with the other female traveling companions. And that is why Pokeshipping is, and always will be the most canon.
Heheh, I love drawing pictures with some tepidity in them. Their shadows stumped me at first because I wasn't sure how to go about it (and it looked a bit lacking before), but then I just created their silhouettes + motion blur lol.
I didn't know it was Pokéshipping Day! (Though I don't understand why shippings have their own special dates... )
I noticed that you usually draw them in light, happy situations, and that's a good thing. ^^ It's not like they are canonically angst-racked nor something remotely similar, so drawing them in comical, tender or simply happy contexts suits them better, IMO.
Lol it's just a fun way to celebrate a pairing. Pixiv does it too with lots and lots of other pairings from other fandoms so yeah. And now that I remember how they decide the day, I'm thinking that April 3rd would have been a more appropriate date.
I just can't wrap my mind about them being an angsty couple anymore lol. I mean, "Gotta Catch Ya Later" had them both pretty sad about them leaving each other, but other than that they're always pretty happy to see each other and don't dwell on the fact that they're separated too much anymore. So I'd rather see them as a happier couple than one of those melodramatic ones. I get bored with those after a good while lol. I really hoped that it showed in what I tend to draw!
This is so so so cute!!!!! Well, I mean, it tugs at my heartstrings, but I love the way you drew them definitely. I miss pairing Ash and Misty. It's such a nostalgic pairing. And it's depressing knowing people ship Ash with every girl he's ever traveled with... but... to each his own... I guess??? My favorite will always be with Misty. Because they're too perfect with each other. (Oh, and I guess I missed the memo that there was a Pokeshipping day. Aw...)
I extremely love the way you drew Ash in his newest outfit! >_<
The thing is, I don't pair Ash with anyone else because I ship the newer girls with other guys from their generations. For example: Drew/May, Paul/Dawn, or Barry/Dawn. But I don't hate people because they don't like my pairings, lol. That would be rude.
I actually like Ash's newest outfit a lot! The shoes I had to get used to, but it's a cool design. I just wish he was older in this season, instead of being 10 again. :/
