Today, Kaji-san showed me a new figure he's working on. It's called Belotonian Jr. and is a collaboration between Blobpus and Masayoshi Hanawa.
The figure is based on an illustration by Hanawa-san from his book, called Monsters.

Some other illustrations from the book:
As Kaji-san explained it, he's basing the 3D figure on a single illustration, while making adjustments as needed for the translation from 2D-3D. So the resulting figure is something of a joint design between him and Hanawa-san.

Belotonian Jr. is due out this winter. Smile for the camera!
