Hello again! I used this pattern for my pumpkin carving this year. You can see it here: i.imgur.com/dteJ01G.jpg

I'm quite glad how it turned out because this one was really difficult to do, probably way harder than the Jack Bros. haha. I had to use some very unorthodox carving tools (mini screwdriver, thread remover, and needles?!) especially when doing the thin lines. It took about 9-10 hours to finish along with getting a sore neck in the process, but it was still a lot of fun :p

Thanks for the pattern! And I hope you do more of these in the future!

Oh goodness!  That looks amazing!! Well done indeed!  I only produced one new pattern this year, as my Halloween Haunt got much larger this year. I didn't even get a chance to carve Flutterbat!  But, I think next year will be a bigger year.

I'm thinking of doing some classic monster movie and classic horror film pumpkin patterns... What do you think?

Really great carving on this one.  I always appreciate when you send the carved images back to me!  Thanks!!

Sounds good! Admittedly, I do have a bit more interest in gaming-related pumpkin patterns, which is what I have always used. Nevertheless, I'm interested in what you will come up with!

Thanks!

Gaming related pumpkins, eh?  Cool!  I can get behind that.  What are your favorite games?  Love to get some fresh ideas!

Thanks for the pattern. This is the first pumpkin I've ever carved. Not perfect, but I was happy with the results. ^_^

Not Perfect!? Wow! That's an understatement! You did a fantastic job carving that. Looks just like the first time I did that pattern. Great carve!

I really want to do this pattern! But how do I go about doing the light colored areas?

Light coloured areas could be ground out in a number of ways. My personal favorite way is with a barrel shaped dremel bit in my dremel pumpkin carver. You could just as easily carefully cut it with a paring knife, or another thought is to use a clay scoop (the triangular piece of wire that people use to dig strips of clay off of a block). shallow vertical cuts inside the cutout area would help to make paring knife work easier. Be careful with the paring knife method though.

Yeah, Vulpix turned out pretty well ;) I'm working on a wicked Ditto pattern as we speak too. Should be quite neat!

Aww! Thanks Misa! Stick around for a few others. You'll get a chance to see Ditto, and if I get time, Marowak (sp?!) and Jigglypuff. ;)

Really? Those pokemon are great, maybe you could even design a ninetails, to go with your vulpix pattern! That is, if you have the time.^^

Ninetails eh? By the end of this year, I'll have done all of the originals :D
If I have time this year, I'll see what I can do. If not, next year is an option too!

Misa-chu Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2009
wow, are you really going to do all of them? that's great!^^
That's true, tere's always next year! But if you really do create patterns for all of them, then I'll have trouble finding enough pumpkins!:giggle:

Hehehe! Well, it feels like I'm doing all of them. These patterns do take a little time to do, so I'll likely finish Ditto, and then do Marowak and Jigglypuff, and call that good for this season.

Oh, okay!^^
So, do you have photoshop? Because there's a really easy way to create patterns using it.

I know the Photoshop method. I prefer using Adobe Illustrator, because I have more control over the cut / don't cut areas of the pumpkin. I can make my pattern just the way I want, whereas the Photoshop method leaves me less in-charge.
