It's been a long time without drawing Ash and Misty, huh?
In spite of being a Pokéshipper for such a long time (I've lost count of the years), I rarely like the way I draw Ash and Misty.
But since I recently read Toshihiro Ono's 'Pikachu Shocks Back' (I knew about Dengeki Pikachu for a decade now, but this is my first time reading a volume -- since I found it second hand in the UK :
D) I got some inspiration, and sharing some tweets with the lovely =MiyaToriaka
helped a lot as well. ^^
I really liked the interactions between the two in this volume, they were very 'nineties.' :3 I don't know, I just love the constant teasing, like when Misty tries to look pretty and Ash tells her that she looks like a boy anyway, so he gets punched on the head and she keeps doing her thing --almost-- as if nothing happened.
So he's like 'don't go all cute now, everyone's seen what you did.'
I tried to make Misty's face look as if she was trying to force a smile to look cute and sweet after 'putting Ash in his place.' Not sure if I succeeded, though, but it was fun to draw! ^^ Hope you like it!Satoshi/Ash & Kasumi/Misty © Satoshi Tajiri & Pokémon/Pocket Monsters (Nintendo, Creatures Inc., GameFreak, TV Tokyo, ShoPro, JR Kikaku, OLM).
