3D Pumpkin Sculptures

>>  9/22/2012

If you follow carving art's news you might heard about Ray Villafane's 3D Pumpkin Tutorial. Ray makes fantastic 3D sculptures in pumpkins which look like real faces. The good news is that Ray released a DVD tutorial with lessons and loop tools for pumpkin face sculpturing. 

I bought his DVD and tools last year when the pumpkin season was over. I have been waiting for a whole year to test the loop tools.  And it's the time now! I watched his video several times before I started. 
I should confess I doubted whether I can carve the 3D face or not. I plucked up my courage, left my fears  behind and took the tools. 

That was something incredible. Following the Ray's tutorial I carved (the better word is scraped) 3 pumpkin faces in 2 days. On the picture below is my very first face made exactly as Ray teaches in his DVD:

Other two pumpkins were made the next day. I thought my own desing for them. Following Ray's tips and explanations I managed to do them!

the third pumpkin, Thiniking Face

Cool, isn't it? :)
By the way, Ray published an album with his pumpkins. I purchased it also. There are photos with close-up look of pumpkin faces in the album so you can see clearly the details like a mouth line, nose or eyes position.
