TERRIFYING GYO FIGURINE BY ANDRÉ PETER

[RSS readers, this post features galleries using PictoBrowser; Please click through to the blog to view them!]

Today I received these photos of a horrifying and badass handmade figurine by longtime Same Hat reader, André Peter! He's painstakingly depicted the horrible fate of the female protagonist Kaori from Junji Ito's fishpocalypse manga, Gyo. You can check out some pages here on the Viz site, if you haven't already read it.

Enjoy the pictures and let him know what you think in the comments!


To see more of André's sculpture work, head over to this Conceptart.org forum thread. Thanks again for sharing this awesome piece of work, dude!

Wow! This looks fantastic! I can't even imagine the amount of work it required! It's beautiful ^^

spork said...

Wow, that's bad ass!

You might want to fix the "forum link" though. It points to samehat.blogspot.com which I'm assuming it's supposed to point to some conceptart forum instead.

@spork: Thanks for catching that, just fixed the link! :)

Holy rotting fish guts, that's so !@#$% awesome.

That's absolutely disgusting...

Amazing! But...poor Kaori.

What should I do next? A disfigured Tomie, a zombie Patrick or something original?

JE said...

That sculpture is all win right there. Excellent, excellent work.

Jaclyn said...

wow, this is so freaking awesome.. it looks great and is especially badass since it's home made.

oh fuck, that's horrifying. I wish more of Ito's comics were in english.

I went to an art show a couple of months ago, and both me and a friend were both reminded of the Ito story were the people go into the holes in the mountain by one of the pieces (stretchy)

it would be the best thing ever, if you could control this thing with a remote or something. great work, sir.

This is nice, but I'd love to have the walking-shark-attack scene sculpted!

ryan said...

Awesome! This is one the most commented-on posts to date.

Thanks again to Andre!

Speaking of that shark-scene, here is a commission that I bought from Johnny Ryan back in 2007: Me getting eaten by the Gyo shark!

@André Peter: what about Shuichi's turned-into-a-spiral father inside the tub, from Uzumaki vol.1? :)

André Peter said...

@Okada
Good idea. I'm gonna look into how i could tackle that one. Shoulnd't be too much work.

@ Ryan
No problemo, keep up the amazing work!

@All
Thanks a lot!

the book lends itself to being made into such a great live action movie, argh, well by people with talent at least.

Great, great likeness. Nice to see so many GYO fans around, too.

What next? I'd rather see something from UZUMAKI before TOMIE. The Jack-in-the-box was terrifying!
