This is a neat idea. I am going to do one based off of this but change a few things. Nice design.

This is beautiful. I've tried doing more intricate carvings, but I always run into the issue of preserving the artwork once it's done. What's your secret?

Hi! Sorry I'm so late to reply to this. Sadly, I have no secret to preserving mine. I consider part of the challenge of pumpkin design is accepting its very brief existence. That being said, acrylic fixative, or a bleach soak will keep the details crisper for a few days if you're working in fine detail.

I love this! :) I can't tell though, did you carve all the way through for the background or just part way? Either way it is amazing :D

This is such a beautiful design! And the carving is so well done. This is the first year I've tried to carve a fancy pumpkin and it was quite difficult. What tools did you use for this? I'd love some tips and pointers if you don't mind divulging your secrets. :)

:iconmasterpiecelost:
MasterpieceLost Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
actually my only tools were a washable marker, a standard pumpkin knife like from those kits you can get anywhere, and an Xacto blade. The best trick is just to work it out in your head first, where you want to have lights darks and mid tones, and experiment with how far you cut into the meat, as it will vary how much light gets through.

Hmm... I think I had more tools available to me and I still had trouble. I only tried it this year though, so I'll probably get better with practice. Thanks for responding. :)

The lighting is really awesome, with the warm glow within, and the cooler window lighting from behind.

It makes your already cool pumpkin even cooler. :) Good job!
