Go All Cute Now by LauraPaladiknight Go All Cute Now by LauraPaladiknight
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. :XD: 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!

Dawww I love this so much!!and I saw this used in the most CUTE pokeshipping video ever!!! I could link it to you if you wanted?
LauraPaladiknight Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well, okay. :aww: But if they used fanart, did they give credit to the artists?
wishfulthinkiner Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2012
[link] Here is the link :3 I dont think they credited though :(
LauraPaladiknight Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That's a good video!

Too bad they didn't credit any of the artists, especially because they only used fanart and it's kind of disrespectful. I don't really care that much myself (as long as they don't claim they drew the pictures themselves), but I know that Japanese artists are pretty much fed up with foreigners stealing their pictures and using them thinking they'll never know they do. ^^;
wishfulthinkiner Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2012
Yep it it is extra good video!! but yeah it really is messed up that they do that D: when I (if I ever) make a video using fan art it I link stuffs

Bahahahah, Ash, you idiot. I will never tire of this pairing for as long as I live. :)

If you were trying for a forced smile on Misty, I'd have to say you succeeded pretty well. The light blush (be it from fury or embarassment) is a nice touch.

you make Misty really great :)

WOW me encanta.

Un momento,estas hablando de algun fanzine Pokeshipping O.O?

Ey se me olvidaba decirte k esa ropita k lleva Misty es genialisima!!
LauraPaladiknight Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
No, no, es un manga. :3 En japonés se llama Dengeki Pikachu (de Toshihiro Ono, tiene cuatro tomos), pero en inglés cada tomo tiene un nombre diferente. He aprovechado que estoy de Erasmus en Reino Unido para hacerme con un par de ellos a buen precio. :XD:

La camisa que lleva está ligeramente basada en una que me compré aquí también (en las rebajas, que soy ahorradora >:3). ˇMuchas gracias!
kaoriAnzai Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2012
LauraPaladiknight Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
ˇSí! :D Rebajazas, del 50% o 70% de descuento en algunos sitios, es una pasada. La camisa estaba al 50%.
MirakuruNaito Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Dengeki Pikachu was one of the first series I owned lol; got the unbound chapters from a friend. And it totally does take a lot from the anime when it comes to those two! They're always teasing each other, but they seem a bit more playful and less spiteful in Ono's version.

I definitely see his style influence in this piece of yours. <: Mostly Misty's hair! That's definitely the way he likes to draw it (her bangs gathered up on one side, relaxed and hanging down, with the side ponytails stands protruding like in this picture; I even see the part in her hair that he usually includes LOL). And you know I'm a sucker for original outfits. |D I just love the trim on her shirt and the way it ties on the bottom, as well as her short-cut shorts. You always do folds so beautifully sob teach meeee and it really shows in her blouse. Hehe, and I really like her forced smile; really gets it across that she's trying to pass herself off as more innocent than she really is lol. Wonderful!

You don't like how you're drawing them? ;__________________; But damn they're looking so awesome cute! I love your style so much seeing your works with Pokeshipping. Don't make me cry ;o;.

But AWW I'm happy you could find some inspiration. I'm very happy I'm able to see a new work from you before ACTA starts. I really would miss these FanArts ;3;
She looks so pretty!!! And I love the faces of the two XDDD You're so talented, aww ;__;
LOVE IT, HELL!!! >o<
I love your work ;__; *mew*
LauraPaladiknight Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It usually happens to me. ;___; I'm never satisfied with the way I draw my favourite characters (nor my own characters).

Thank you so much. <333 It's actually quite hard for me to find some inspiration to draw Pokéshipping because everything than comes to my mind has been done already, and I wouldn't want to draw them in the same attitude all the time nor feeling like I'm 'copying' ideas because of the similarity. :( I like drawing them doing different things (while staying in character, of course), but it's hard to get new original ideas when there is so much art for Pokéshipping all over the Net (which is not a bad thing at all, I'm just being self-critical). It's kind of hard to explain. ;___;

I think I have another idea in mind, but it's just a rough sketch at this moment (I feel like sketching a lot lately). :3

Thanks a lot for your support! :hug:

(We gotta stop ACTA!)
MiyaToriaka Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I really know how you feel. Alone in FAITH I changed my style that much because I didn't like it - also I want to make a remake as soon as possible. T__T It's always the problem when you're not happy with your style or the fact the motive was already done by someone else. I really can understand you. :cling:

But please, don't give up! Soon you'll have a new muse and you can do everything free and without thinking of something else. ♥ And it'll become amazing. :la:
I'm really excited for your new picture. ^^

YES! We'll beat it!
LauraPaladiknight Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Be sure I won't give up! :D I'll take it easy. If an idea comes to my mind, then I'll try to draw it, I won't force it.

Thanks a lot for your understanding and support. :hug:
MiyaToriaka Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
AWW that sounds good. ^^ I'll cheer you up in background :giggle: :iconcheerplz: You'll always have a fan in me ;P

Me facino tu dibujo, tanto que me insipiraste a hacer uno xD (no tenia inspiración) Yo he leido parte de ese manga pero jamas lo he leido completo y muchas veces em pierdo pero lo que si tengo entendido es que en dengeki tienen una relación más estable xD o eso entendi ._.u

Bueno, como sea. Realmente Misty es super cute y super tsundere xD. Espero que estes allá y te estes pasando genial =3

Saludos :wave:
KelekiahGaladrian Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'm not familiar with this manga, however, my lack of knowledge doesn't detract from my awe of the piece.

You captured the emotion very well, and made them both adorable while you were at it.

As a lover of well-drawn hands, I'm in love with yours. In fact, the entire anatomy is done very well and doesn't look awkward nor disproportionate.

Your shading and highlighting leaves me slack-jawed. I applaud you--your coloring is FANTASTIC.
