The Pumpkin I have carved for Halloween 2010.
It's an Ood, one of the creatures from the TV show Doctor Who. I even used a hollowed out potato and some cable to make this. I had fun doing it.

Hi.
Well, I just use a variety of kitchen knifes and spoons and an old screwdriver, then just carve into it. I used a reference picture of an Ood as a guide for this. I carve deep into the pumpkin sides first which leaves the basic Ood shape in the middle, then slowly start carving the details into it. I also cut a hole in the side used a hollowed out potato and attached an old bit of cable.
I hope that helps a little!
It can take quite some time to do these carvings but they're always fun to do.
Thanks for your interest and I wish you good luck if you try to do one! :)

Hi. Thanks, I'm pleased you like it!
I don't use stencils or instructions at all. I Peel the skin off the front of it then I just carve into it. I use various tools, mainly a couple of knifes and different spoons and even the end of a screwdriver.
Here's another one that I did last year, it's a Gremlin Pumpkin - :thumb265995175:
Thanks for asking!
