Cthulhu Pumpkin Pattern

This is the result of my messing around with pumpkin pattern ideas, and while I really like the design, I've decided I'd rather use a custom design.
This would probably be a bit more of an advanced design, since it requires scraping away the outer layer of the pumpkin as opposed to cutting out chunks, and most people aren't really familiar with that technique.
Alternately, you could disregard the outer circle completely, and actually cut out the tentacle shapes, though I figured this would be far too intricate of a carving and make the pumpkin more likely to fall apart while carving.
Here's a pattern for those brave enough to attempt the alternate method.

Just as a note of politeness, it would be nice to appropriately attribute the original artist that this template was drawn from.  ©2007 Isabel Collier, incidentally.

Hi! I was wondering if it is okay if me and my friends use this excellent work of art as a team-symbol for a day of baseball that's coming up?

It is really wonderful! ^^

I just finished carving my pumpkin out with this. It came out amazing when I get my camera working properly I'll post a pic.

Had the pic almost immediately but had issues finding the cable to connect the camera to my laptop.

Thanks, and thank you once again for the pattern, as soon as I saw it I knew he must once again walk this earth... at least in pumpkin form.

Dude - I used your pattern, but instead of scraping I used an exacto knife to cut it to about a 3/4" depth and then picked it out using a crab-picking tool.

This pattern freakin' rocks!

Posted pictures here.
