    Default The Pumpkin Giant

    This personal project is an homage to a children's book that I grew up with. The image of a giant pumpkin both haunted and delighted me. I've always loved these original illustrations by Trina Schart Hyman and thought it would be a perfect candidate to sculpt in ZBrush. The model was then rigged and posed in Maya, and rendered with the Arnold renderer.

    I think you really captured him in your sculpt. Good job!

    Great Job Steve!
    Missed you at NYCC - but as I heard you moved to the west. Maybe we'll meet at SDCC next year.

    Thanks everyone! I'm going to further explore lighting with this character in a different environment.

    VISEOne - yeah, I missed NYCC this year, but hope to return for next years.
