Tribute to AAML Hints by CarinaT Tribute to AAML Hints by CarinaT
I decided to celebrate my first ever tablet purchase and experience with a tribute to my favourite Pokeshipping hints. I'm very picky with what I consider to be hints but these are among them. :aww:

I initially wanted to submit the sketches...but they looked a tad too unexciting on their lonesome. So I coloured them and, well, decided to give you both versions in the end.

From top to bottom:

Pokéball Peril - Team Rocket teases Ash and Misty about ditching Brock to "elope" and for blushing.

Navel Maneuvers - Ash doesn't hide his shock and dismay when Misty showers all her attention and concern on Danny instead.

Misty Meets Her Match - What can I say about this episode? It simply reeks of Pokeshippyness. :D Rudy accepts Misty's rejection and tells Ash to look after her (who gets confused, prompting Rudy to say "You're such a clueless guy".)

Pokemon: The Movie 2000 - After seeing Misty's reaction to the " traditional welcome kiss" Melody spends the rest of the movie trying to piss Misty off. XD

A Date with Delcatty - Misty rejects a date, who then asks her if there is someone else. Psyduck pops out, sniggering knowingly. Hmm...

Used my fab Wacom Pen to sketch (it didn't take long to get used to...especially if you've been relying on drawing with a mouse all these years!). I then painted it with a watercolour-style brush with Corel - another new program for me.

As ever, lots of new things to learn. And I hope you guys like this.

I love all Pokemon characters and series, but I will always be a PokeShipper! I can't tell you how much I want Misty to come back to the show! It would also be really interesting now that Serena likes Ash too! Awesome work BTW, looking at this filled me with nostalgia!

Omg this is so awsome, it's orange island shipping nutshell! Way funny!

I started out shipping Misty and Ash. But eventually I learned that Palletshipping was a thing. And I swear I still get bouts of giggles from that fact, so I just HAVE to ship that. It's just too funny.
But this is so beautiful, you can't help but like it!

I missed Misty in the Pokemon anime. I hope that when Ash complete his dream of be a Pokemon master, he returns to her.

xD I can't even articulate how hard I laughed at the last one. I miss Psyduck~ This may have begun to revive my inner pokeshipper...
LadyUnderwood Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2011
Seeing this reminds me of how long it's been since I've seen some of the older episodes...must watch them again soon! I remember the hints from Pokemon 2000 quite well though. I think my favorite of your portrayals here is the first; Ash and Misty can deny it all they want, but the blushes give them away. :D
OverpoweredClefairy Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2011  Hobbyist
I love AshxMisty and I LOVE all this hints! :iconmonkeyloveplz:
But, there are more too! ;)
CarinaT Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2011   Digital Artist
Yah, there are more cute moments, but these are the only ones I deem to be undeniable. :judge:
Thanks for commenting on this...and wow, what a username you have. :giggle:
OverpoweredClefairy Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2011  Hobbyist
Yeah your right, these are awesome moments, my personal favorite is the chapter with Rudy :meow:

Oh, hahaha yeah a friend came up with this nick name ;P Its because I love Clefairies and Cleffas :iconclefairyplz:
CarinaT Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2011   Digital Artist
Great taste! The Rudy episode is just such shippy-canonness. :D
Well anyway, your friend came up with an awesome nickname for ya. :hug:
OverpoweredClefairy Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2011  Hobbyist
Thast why I love of PokeShipping. PokeShipping is 100% Canon in the anime. You only have hints about AdvanceShipping and PearlShipping and deduce they like eachother. But Misty OFICIALLY Likes Ash and the Rudy episode showed this.

And thanks, he is an awesome friend. He also made my icon
Carociwa Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2011
awwwwwwwwwww it's so perfect!!!! I love the last one, Psyduck is so funny! xD You're great! ^^
CarinaT Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2011   Digital Artist
Psyduck is smarter than we all think. :giggle:
I'm so glad you like this, Carociwa. Thankyou! :D
MirakuruNaito Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
BAWWWW. You make me remember Orange Islands. And I'm actually happy that you're picky about hints because I am the same lol. Sorry, can't be convinced by only small interactions; I might think they're cute, but signs of liking someone are different than that.

All of these moments in the episodes were adorable! I think your rendition of Navel Maneuvers is my favorite (oh my gosh, I got such a kick out of seeing Ash in the background with his arms wide open haha). But maybe I'm a bit biased because I especially liked that episode since Ash was acting suspiciously irritated all throughout; I love it when their roles get reversed lol.

Eeeek, you're coloring. It looks so soft and well-blended. I still envy it. :heart:
CarinaT Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2011   Digital Artist
I'm glad you're picky about hints too. :highfive: There are so many so-called 'hints' where Misty could easily be switched with May/Dawn or vice versa. The famous kimono moment with the sparkly background is one example.

Thanks for telling me which one you liked most. It's always interesting for me to hear those opinions! You're right that Ash was especially touchy about Misty and Danny. I wish he would've shown the same irritation against Rudy but hey, you can say that that particular episode was devoted to confirming Misty's side. ;)
