WIP Epic Pumpkin Contest [Pumpkinstein ๐ŸŽƒ]

Hello everyone! Have been learning Blender for a couple of months now, so I'm still a newbie. At the moment I'm doing the shading & lighting class and joining the pumpkin contest at the same time. Lot of work, but so much fun! ๐Ÿ˜„ย 

My class mates have already seen my progress so far, but I thought it would be nice to also show it to the rest of the CG Cookie people ๐Ÿ˜Š

First WIP (basic shape and shading floor, wall and pumpkin & adding volumetrics mist):ย 

Second WIP (modeling the ax):

Third WIP (shading the ax, darkening the mood of the image):

Fourth WIP (adding a rim light to make the pumpkin and ax stand out more from the background):

Made in Blender 2.8 Alpha 2, rendered with EEVEE (only the bolts I did in 2.79. I used Blenders built in bolt-factory addon to make them and addons aren't yet supported in 2.8, so I made them in 2.79 and copied them to 2.8).

Obviously there's still a lot of work to be done before I can call it finished, he hasn't even gotten a face yet! Any and all feedback is welcome so let me know what you think ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Good luck everyone with your pumpkin, it's fun to see what everyone's making so I hope to see many more WIP's and entries from you guys! ๐ŸŽƒ
