Pumpkin Fun

Been a while!

Since I started work at Best Buy, my personal life has once again slowed up a bit in terms of getting things done...including getting blog entries up. The list of stuff I want to record just keeps growing, and I even have days set aside FOR blogging, but...priorities, you know. = /

Anyway, this one should be simple and quick, so I'll go for it. I just carved my first pumpkin in about 6 years, so I wanted to document it. It looks a little...uh...crooked. xD My carving skills aren't that great. But I like how it turned out over all.

The initial cut. I love the inside of pumpkins.
It's slippery, but cool. xD

I later cleaned the seeds and roasted them.

I made a pumpkin man from the guts!
He's contemplating his strange existence...

Love me some pun'kins~

Hollowed out

I found the shavings pretty, okay... :p

Instead of taping on a pattern, I drew it on...with a sharpie.
Bad idea. So, I went over the sketch lines with acrylic paint later.

Before throwing pumpkin man away, I made him evil.
And now I feel like I threw away an angry spirit... D:


It glows very nicely~

...and looks like a shooting star from the side!

So, yes, I carved Uni's Tenyo into a pumpkin. xD I couldn't decide what I wanted...'cause I really wanted to do something with character art, but I didn't have the time. So, I went with my favorite shape...that is connected with a character. And Star Crystal Creations. ^^

Took me about 4 hours to get it all done, and I'm pretty happy with it.
So, yay!

'Til next time-
