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~|
|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.
'Til next time-
