Digimon: Just a Crush by YoukaiYume Digimon: Just a Crush by YoukaiYume
He was sure it was only a passing infatuation. Nothing to worry about.

Love and Friendship FTW!

Aaaand right after I drew Pokemon I felt like drawing Digimon.

Yamato "Matt"/Sora! Sorato!

I know a lot of people prefer Tai/Sora, and to be honest when I was younger I did too. But when I rewatched it years later, I ended up loving Matt/Sora. And while I still like Taiora a great deal, I thought it was kind of refreshing that the main hero didn't get the girl, and I realized that these two probably needed each other more for balance. It also wasn't until later that I found out that the English dub exaggerated a romance in Tai/Sora when there wasn't too much in actuality. ^^; One of the rare instances that I was happy this pairing turned out to be canon. And their kids are so cute.

And even if this wasn't Canon I think I'd still ship it cuz you know how I like the odd couples.

Besides. Matt. is hot.

I'm on a roll today. Maybe I'm just releasing some pent up creative energy after not drawing for fun after so long. Trying to ride this wave while it's still flowing!

Copic Markers on Bristol! I love my new mini Bristol Sketch Book.

Well in the english dub I saw. Sora and Matt got married at the end..There was no sign of a romance between her and Tai

er, sorry but it isn't really an "odd couple"
Sorato is definitely more popular, 'cause the reason Sorato ended up canon was they had a poll as to who Sora should get with, and Matt won. Japanese fangirls love the strong silent badboy type. XD
great picture though :3

i dont think that was true..... the creator intended Sorato and decided that the endgame would be them regardless of the fans

I love Matt. I've loved him since I was in elementary school. D:

This picture = All of my love. :heart:

Matt and Sora are cute together, but I am a TaiSora shipper... (mainly so I can have Matt...XD)

FerrisWheelShipper16 Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2011
Oh my GOD why are these two so perfect together? :heart: I have shipped these two since before I even KNEW as much about Digimon as I know now. And to those who push the Distant Finale into Fanon Discontinuity: you just don't want to admit that this is, like, THE canon couple. (And for some reason I ship Tai with Mimi... I'm weird, I know. XD)

I prefer Taiora a little bit more, but I like both. Either way though, I love this! I love the colors you chose and the style. Great job!

Oh man, it's so cool seeing you draw Digimon fan-art! The colours and facial expressions are awesome!

And I must add - after the Yamato pulled Sora out of the dark cave thing, I always supported Sorato. SO cute! :D <3

OMG the english dub was so annoying. And Matt is hot, fo sho. I just never caught on to the Tai/Sora vibe.

Dude, this was the very first pairing that I shipped (unconsciously) of course I wanted Sora for myself, but I let Matt hog the glory because he was my favorite character :3

I'm not a fan of these guys cuz....well...Matt's mine xDDD lol seriously I love that guy. He was my first for reals anime crush :heart: I think I cried when I found out they got married and had kids xD;
If it's true that the creator really randomly picked couples, I'm super angry that it was Matt/Sora and Ken/Yolei. The 2 men that I loved OTL

ANYWAY. Beautiful pic! I love the expressions <3
Oriaes Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2011
I think you should keep doing this couple. I absolutely love Matt and Sora as a couple.
superpower-pnut Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2011
I always thought Sora's 'crest problem' was weakest. She claimed to have a problem with love, if I'm recalling correctly, that she never had any in her life. Which was complete bull@#$% to me, b/c she had Biyomon by her side constantly. Biyomon, who'd probably molt for her just so she could have a fashion accessory.

But that may have had more to do with the dub. I dunno. I liked Yamimi, but thinking about it now, they'd prolly end in divoce b/c of their fragile ego-states and emotional neediness imploding. Shame. They'd have hot kids with beautiful voices
cometita Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2011
Beautiful!!! I liked Sorato since Digimon Adventure when we had no idea how they would end up.. like you I liked more Taiora but ended falling in love with these two.. the only show when my favorite pairing actually got together in canon :D
