Halloween Pumpkins '04

So one of the things I enjoy (and this year I actually have time to do it) is carve jack-o-lanterns. I use the Pumpkin Master's kit tools, but I draw my own designs. I realized that I'd never be able to carve all the designs I have planned in one day, so I started early. I realize this pumpkin will probably not last until Halloween night, but I couldn't wait. Here is a pic of my first one of the season, the shower scene from Psycho!

I promise this is a REAL picture of an actual carved pumpkin, not a Photosop creation. I did use PS to play with the contrast and color, but the carving is real. I'll post more as I carve them.

That's a pretty sweet looking jack-o-lantern. I wish I had enough creativity to design my own instead of downloading templates, lol.

Awesome carving, I'm really impressed ! I also like to (attempt) to make my own pumpkin designs every year. Here's a pattern I made last year if anyone would like to use it. Sorry it's so small, you just have to increase the size and print it! Oh yeah and if you can guess where I got the idea from you get a prize (well not really, but you can just imagine it). Just make sure you only cut out the white parts inside the big black circle (sorry if I insulted your intelligence ). Enjoy!

As promised... here is another. "Mother's House" also from Psycho. I should have taken the pic sooner, some of the tetails were already drying out and fell apart.

Holy Schnikies! Those are some insane carving skills! I think the last time I tried carving a pumpkin I successfully carved a bucket.

what problems did you encounter? When I was carving my pumpkins it started to cave in a bit, made it pretty difficult.

blitz.fenix: What kind of design were you doing? When I'm drawing out the designs I always have to remember that the dark shapes themselves must be anchored in some way. If you don't design enough inherent stability, you'll end up with a mess. The "Vertigo" one was very difficult to carve because the only anchors that the design had were the figure's right hand and left foot.

I will clean out the pumpkins, then immediately carve them. Also, I keep a water spray bottle handy and spray them down occasionally, especially after carving. That will help keep them from drying out.

Try coating all the cut surfaces of the pumpkin with vasoline, lightly.
I found that the pumpkin would last longer.
