… I swear to every Weeaboo god I used to have like ten thousand pencilboards and now when I actually need one I’m forced to resort to using an old Saiyuki document sleeve.

Anyway. Markers over sketches are fun! Also: Lain as a Pokémon trainer, for some reason. Lain’s team is Blaziken, Delphox, Salazzle, Noivern, Corviknight, and Archeops. I think Sigmund’s would be Galarian Rapidash, Lycanrock, Milotic, Mismagius, and (the nuclear option) a Kyurem and a Reshiram.1

Incidentally, Original Form Lain used to get around in an “ugly chartreuse sweater”, mostly because it was the color of pencil in my giant box of pencils I found the most curious. He got a bit more fashionable over the years, going through a visual kei phase in the early 2000s, before settling on a generic hipster look for his current, published, incarnation. And now we come full circle, with gender-ambivalent post-Bad Meme Lain,2 back once more in his oversized ugly chartreuse sweater and loudly clashing nebula leggings.

Never change, Lain. Never change…

Edit: Aa-aa-aa-nd with a bit more of Lain filled out.

  1. a.k.a. Sleipnir, Fenrir, Jormungandr, Hel, Sigyn, and Loki. []
  2. Not to mention post-post-Bad Meme Sigmund, with his beard and long hair… []
