Yep. This is THE egg. The doomy one. Process went like this:

-Wax, dye (repeat several times)
-On the last dye, I used "royal blue", which is why there are those spiffy little dark halos around everything. The denim color occurred after extensive rubbing and re-dipping.
-Finished. Melted off wax. Was extremely happy and excited.
-Varnished before emptying. I have yet to find the right kind. Every type I've tried so far has SOME problem associated with it.
-Doom. I started to empty it and it EXPLODED. A lot.
-Head explodes. Piece head back together using duct tape.
-Dry egg PIECES. Piece together using white glue and friggin' NEWSPAPER. Sob uncontrollably.
-Take pictures AFTER the fact, because I'm stupid and don't plan ahead for catastrophic failure.
-Spend hours in photoshop removing cracks XP

Mkay. So. Yes there are still some cracks in the pics. I couldn't get them all. The only thing I did in PS was remove cracks with the clone tool (praise be to ~psymansays for showing it to me!). It really did look like this before the explosion, denim and all. I swear I didn't cheat! Perhaps I should have, though... I've seen the competition for this contest. I'm thinkin' it's not happening... Oh well.
I suppose I could say I learned something from this egg, but I'm too emotionally distraught to care...

I may try to submit another one before the contest ends... Or I may have shell shock and freak out instead! "The horror!!! Yoke... everywhere... the horrorrrrrr..." :dead:

EDIT
Nope. Didn't win. Not even 3rd... Oh well...

Thought I'd try my hand at the Lightning returns contest since I've always liked designing outfits. .__.
I was inspired by 17th century European menswear/clothing worn by cavaliers. The colors are I chose are ones that you might find while wandering a rose garden at midnight~

Prismacolor colored pencils on tracing paper + photoshop.

Hey look, I made another pumpkin! It only took me three years!

This is the first time I've done a 3-D pumpkin carving, and also the first time I have carved any other vegetable. Those roses are made of beets! BEETS!
(Alobar's people ate beets, you know?)

Many thanks to my husband :iconlaughing-goat: for the reminder that I adore Dia de los Muertos skulls when I didn't have an idea, letting me trash our living room, and taking a killer shot for the carving contest.


Enjoy, and have a Happy Halloween/Blessed Samhain!

EDIT: The winners have been posted! Check them out and give them some props. Everyone worked hard and submitted really great pumpkins.

Thanks to all the people who rooted for me, and to my hubby for being disappointed for me. :P I had a lot of fun.

And a huge shout out to :iconwingedsonar:, who placed runner-up with their adorable bat pumpkin (bats are awesome!), but gave me a huge shout out in their comments. Any competitor that awesome and gracious deserves lots of compliments, page views and llamas!
