A New Gaggle of Gremlins from Chris Ryniak for Monsters & Misfits II

Chris Ryniak has just revealed a new batch of beastlies for us in anticipation of Monsters & Misfits II. First up is this meanie, who I’m convinced had something to do with Bubblegut’s missing ice cream. Well … I shouldn’t just start accusing, but he is looking rather snarly for someone who has a paw full of sugar high. Loving the scowl and slivered teeth of this one and I’m also curious of his size; if those candies are to scale, we have another big boy to ogle next month.

Speaking of ice cream — here’s the custom soft-serve Bubblegut who we last saw chillin’ (heh) atop Lizzie’s head. I’m really digging this colour on Bubblegut; it suits the sculpt and emphasizes his eyes. Not to mention that he looks good enough to eat …

Ah, so that’s where those pearly whites wound up! Very cool to see the Cuspid taking a bite out of the Kuma platform; the spots on the head and belly are a nice touch. Any volunteers want to teach this fella how to brush? I cannot guarantee that you’ll leave with brush and/or fingers intact…

According to Chris, “this is what happens when you really don’t know how to use a camera…..and monsters are involved.” True, but you have to admit that overexposed images do lend themselves to pretty sweet teaser shots. I’m pretty sure this is the giant Lizzie sundae — yes, the one with the aforementioned soft-serve Bubblegut. Unfortunately, the only full-reveal of said sculpt also includes its creator being … well, himself. Sorry, Chris, but I have no other choice! Scroll …

And there you have it. I’m also pleased to announce that Chris will also be on display at the exhibition, likely making a series of faces much like this one. Pictures, please. Monsters & Misfits II opens April 13th at the Kusakabe Folk Museum in Takayama, Japan!
