Carving a scary goblin face, a 3D pumpkin time lapse

Lenny Calvin is an artist, sculptor, master carpenter, and a Halloween Wars alum who creates spine-chilling 3D pumpkins as a professional pumpkin carver every Halloween season. In the time-lapse above, he transforms a massive autumnal fruit into a sneering goblin face by skinning its outside in relief.
