Holy shit, I came fourth, I can't beleive it!
The comments from the judges were fair, my carving and shading were off. The brighter bit is where I tried to show shading, but it looked shitty, so I stopped. Unfortunaly you can't Ctrl+Z on a pumpkin.
I'm happy to be below the top 3, they were truely immense (ReNaeNae's especially, the precision of the carving is unrivaled). PhantomZ's entry didn't show much carving, but didn't need to with a setup like that. It's nice to see some originality, some 'thinking outside the box'. He deserved that spot. ArkySB's Steve was just downright awesome.
Thanks to all the judges gave their comments, though I think I'm gonna go and cry at Mindchamber's. :'(
Thanks to Tom aswell for putting me in the top 6.
I'm off to PM Bob!
