Here is a pumpkin of Amaterasu and Issun from the video game Okami. This is one of my first pumpkins carved this style. I scraped the outer layer of the pumpkin instead of carving through all of the way. I like this way of carving because I can create shading and fine detail work without any of the pieces breaking off. Sorry for the quality of the picture, my camera isn't the best and it's hard to see all of the detail and shading that I did. It took me about seven hours to complete.
GamesRadar sent me here! Most impressive!
Was this completely free hand? That is awesome! ^_^
Yes, it's all free-hand and I used only an X-acto knife for detailing and a melon baller to scrape large shapes out on the surface of the pumpkin. The whole thing took me roughly 40 hours (not counting breaks). Thanks for your comment !
I typed in the description that it only took me seven hours because I didn't want it to look like I was bragging or complaining, but it really took around 40 hours because I worked on it almost not-stop for two days.
Wow thats awesome! Great job
my dog looks like Amey if she was bigger she could cosplay as her
