Pumpkin Carving Tutorial by FinnaJei Pumpkin Carving Tutorial by FinnaJei
FULL VIEW OR DOWNLOAD PLEASE!!!

This thing is massive o.o but it's sorta my process of carving pumpkins. I had to take all my own pictures cause no one was home to help so I'm using my left hand for everything. I'm Right handed so my hand dose look unnatural when holding things.

I hope this helps people. Even if just a little ^^;

I got the idea for the FMA logo from :iconisika: she had mentioned trying to carve it out, and so i thought it would be a good design to do.

I use my Knifoon (hehe) like i would a vegetable peeler. I cut the skin slightly, without digging too deep, and pill towards me to basically "Skin" the pumpkin. If I want to take only a think layer off the pumpkin for shading effects thats what i would use it for. I can controll the Knifoon (lol i love it) better then a regular vegetable peeler, and i can sharpen/shape it to my individual needs unlike the regular peeler.

Carving is fun. I look forwards to the autumn season every year so I can get my hands on some pumpkins. :D

Thanks. I'm trying to do a lot of work on the wiki, but bringing this project to its true potential is beyond the ability of any single person. Any help is welcome.

I've also recently finished writing an Improvement Guide for the wiki, which I hope will be useful.
