And he has produced a tutorial video which shows the techniques he uses.

Mr Russell said he has been recognised on Facebook groups for his impressive carving efforts.

He added: “I try and up the quality every year and this year’s pumpkin turned out quite well.

“I’m a video game artist for a living and I feel my imagination for macabre things helps me achieve quite creepy results.”
