Case and point: Ray Villafine. I recently came across a gallery of his carvings which are CRAZY good. But how much time did he spend banging these sculptures out? Days? Weeks? Months?? I mean this detail is out of control. Take a look at some of his creations.
So yeah these are great and all, and extremely impressive, but if there was a contest, would they even come close to winning… especially if this pumpkin was in the running?
