Theme 73: Trepidation by Simply-Nicole Theme 73: Trepidation by Simply-Nicole
I really hope you guys like this!! So theme 73 is oblivious, which I was super excited about because it allowed me to draw a picture that supported one of my small head canons. I just imagine one day when Ash finally grows up a bit realizing that his best friend is undeniably pretty, really pretty, and that it freaks him out in a good yet scary way. He is finally not so oblivious :D So being Ash he acts like a total spazz and ultimately spends a lot of time avoiding Misty because he is not sure how to handle this revelation. This would annoy her and she finally seeks advice from Brock who shares with her what he thinks is going on. Being the kind, understanding, compassionate friend Misty is she naturally would respond with grace right? No, she takes advantage of this newfound power over her best friend and revels in his sweet misery :giggle: So that's what this is. My sweet OTP growing up and flirting/torturing each other in new ways. I love it :happycry:

Sorry that this is a bit sloppy, I kept smearing my pencils ^^; But it felt so amazing to finally break them out again.

This drawing is adorable, I like the idea of Ash being semi-oblivious, not being fully oblivious but still not fully realizing it, not knowing how to handle that feeling...

If you don't want to talk about it, that's okay, but are the heart issues you mentioned in your previous journal entry a bit better now or not? How is that going?

Simply-Nicole Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I'm so glad that you like this!!! I like the idea of it as well. Oh Ash, he is too adorkable Giggle 

Right now my heart is the same. We finished with a whole bunch of testing a couple of weeks ago, the results should all be in next week. I go back to the cardiologist on the 23rd.

MarvelscaleMilotic Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Well, yeah, it's also how I see Ash as a teenager: somewhat aware of it, but still a bit dense.

I hope the results won't be too bad, and that the issue can be fixed... So far, do you have any idea what it could be?

No no I'm home now. This happened a bit ago. Now we are doing testing. Hopefully we get the answers soon. All I can do now is stay calm, patiently wait and be very aware of how my body is feeling. If I feel I need to then I will go to the ER.

Everything went down in May, however in June I got whooping cough (where in I came in contact with it I have NO idea!) and it took me 3 weeks to recover so that slowed down testing. However now that I'm more aware of signs in my body I've been having symptoms for years, I just always wrote them off as other things you know.

Where can I start? I just logged on, and the first thing I see is a stunning piece that just screams Pokeshipping goodness!!!! :la: I adore the little story you put behind this piece, and totally find it in character. That story would make a preciously juicy fanfic. ;p Plus, I just appreicate you putting a little head canon behind your pieces. It makes them all the more special. :D By the way, Misty's hair is GORGEOUS! Ash looks super good lookin' too. Loving your style, it's so original! :squee:

And I'm glad you're using pencil again. :D I LOVE your digital work, it's phenomenal, but something about traditional is just special to me. Absolutely beautiful coloring! :love: Well done!!!!

Hope you're doing okay! :hug:

Oh my you are way too kind to me, thank you so much Bunny Emoji-21 (Huggy) [V1] Your comment made me smile! Lol maybe one day I can do a fanfic with this. We shall see!! Thank you especially for the comment on Misty's hair, I worked hard on it. I've struggled to find a style with my colored when it comes to hair that I like, but I really like this and think I'm going to stick with it. Also thank you for the comment on my style, it means so much to know that people like it bunneh icon8 

I can't lie I've missed my pencils a lot. And it didn't hit me fully until I picked them up just how badly I've missed them. I had a lot of fun coloring this.

Thank you, I hope your day is going great as well :hug:

You're most welcome Nicole! :tighthug: Yay, more smiles! LOL. YES. You would write an epic fic based on this. ;p No problem! It's obvious you took a lot of time on Misty's hair. The colors and overall coloring in general is just stunning I don't know how else to describe it. Definitely stick with it! Of course, your style is so unique, it stands out beautifully.

I'm sure once you started coloring, you did realize how much you missed using them. I can relate with my pens.

My day is going okay. Thank you! How have you've been doing by the way? You can talk about only if want to. No rush at all. :D I'm just a concerned friend who can't help but care!
