So after about 8 hours of carving, this is the pumpkin I had! This was my first time doing an intricate pattern with shaving/shading, and for the first...5 hours, I was pretty sure it would be a disaster. But then it started to come together, and after buying a brighter light, all of the hard work really showed! I hope you guys enjoy! The pattern is from stoneykins.com, if anyone is interested!
Also I didn't put a watermark on this one, since it made the carving hard to see--so PLEASE don't rip this off, ok? Thanks!!
Or Torchic, if you prefer. Carved fresh today, and I think this one turned out the best of my fire trio. The design just worked smashingly. It does look better IRL though. Most of my pumpkins do. Anyway yeah. I like Torchic too. Fire starters are the best. I've got a Torchic partner in Mystery Dungeon named Antonio. And Antonio is awesome. So this one goes out to Antonio.
First pumpkin o the year! Feels good to get back into them, and to play with all the new toys I got. This was actually made as a possible banner logo type thing for BMGf, since they said they were looking for a Halloween theme and I was thinking about a possible Bulbasaur pumpkin/watermelon anyway.
I think it turned out pretty darn cool. I had fun using my new scraping type tools. The 4 in 1 thing that Pumpkin Masters workw rather well, while the scarper from the "professional pumpkin carving kit" Wasn't so good. I'll give it another few tries before I officailly condemn it though. I used a Power Saw from Pumpkin Masters for the lid, but it wasn't all that good. Hard to use, useless for details, and overall kind of lame. Anyway, that was ranty for no apparent reason. Pumpkin = Joey like though. I wish I could have gotten a better image though, the Sugimori one I used is rather uninteresting. Still looks pretty cool carved out though.
I like Cyndaquil. It was my first fire starter, as I actually started with Pikachu on my very first game. I named him Joey.
I failed on the picture taking with this one. Shrieker may have gotten a better shot, so I might reupload when she sends it to me. *wink wink nidge nudge* Until then you can just put up with this blurry version. I think it was already two days old by the time I took the pictures, so it sucks even more because of it. Sadness. Carved back on the 30th of September I think, just uploading it now for the same reason as Charmander.
