Stephen Molyneaux was one of the artists on Detective Pikachu, and his work—helping “translate the wonderful designs by Ken Sugimori into the real world”—is so cute I can barely look at it.

It’s like staring into the sun. Only the sun is small, and covered in fur. Eevee is a particular hazard. (Editor’s Note: Psyduck.)

While the designs themselves were worked on by Molyneaux, the 3D sculpts you’re seeing here also feature contributions from VFX studio BadClay and freelance sculptor Abner Marin.
