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.
