Nuzlocke White: Leif Gijinka by ky-nim Nuzlocke White: Leif Gijinka by ky-nim
"Never give up, even in the face of death."

DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND, HERE'S A LEIF GIJINKA. FYI, HE IS NOT NINA'S POKEMON, BUT CHEREN'S. [link]

As you probably could tell from Extra #024, Leif is a highborn like Laila and is very courteous to everyone (will address every except his closest friends with honorifics). His nature is serious; his IVs, proud of his power. Unsurprisingly, Leif gets along really well with Cheren.

I will try to draw gijinkas of Cheren's other Pokemon (and Bianca's) when I have time OTL

For some reason, I really like Professor Sycamore's theme. I always think of a sped-up, flute remix, and that makes me think of him dressed in this. I really like it!

In retrospect, he looks rather Kalosian, doesn't he? 
In my head Snivy's evolutionary family actually originates from Kalos bcuz of how friggin' french they seem. I thought that actually had some kind of cultural basis, but... on further reflection... no, not really.... so call it a strange whim I guess... ...but still.

Kynim, why do you like NoA's name translation better? Me, I find Leaf rolls off the tongue better. It's bad enough that they made him a Trickster instead of a Mage Knight at the very least...

Besides, 'Leif' is a popular Scandinavian name, as in Leif Erickson, a viking who (I think, I'm not totally sure) discovered Newfoundland before other Europeans even showed up.

You actually did really well on the rapier, something most people don't do well with. It could be a bit longer for my taste - that's just me, Ive known people who prefer the shorter rapiers - but it's nicely done.

:iconky-nim:
ky-nim Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2013   Digital Artist
Yeah...it kinda was a pain to draw the rapier tbh.

I'll just chalk it up to he's holding a short one and say he also has a longer one stored somewhere hahaha;;;

:iconcountessfoxington:
CountessFoxington Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2013
I think the difficulty is because the blades are so dang thin! But that might just be me. ^^;

xD I can imagine that being the case. For future reference, the "proper" - I use the quotes because some people prefer shorter blades than what is the proper length for them - length for a rapier, has the pommel coming up to the user's bellybutton.

This pleases me, for I see it as:

Leif is sweet on Laila

Laila is oodles for Zach

Zach (though now more serious after his evolution) is kinda oblivious to Laila

Result? Excellence.
