Joey's 2014 Jack-o-Lantern Thread!

Post by Joey » 28 Oct 2014 06:40 am

It's back! And late. Sorry. Been busy with work so I've been spending most of my random days off carving. It's been a good year so far. 7 pumpkins done, and a solid plan for actually getting a big theme done Halloween weekend. I meant to do some post Halloween carving last year but I burned myself out with the Majora's Mask. No watermelons though, I didn't force myself to make the time for any. I'll have to next year, I have some plans, and unfinished eeveelutions.

A cool ghost pirate pumpkin from Zombie Pumpkins. I'd completely forgotten about this pattern until I opened up my pattern box and found it sitting on top. It's like I purposefully left it there so I would see it, go last year me!

Image Image
Ok if you didn't see Pumpkaboo coming a mile away, I don't know what to tell you xD I threw in Phantump as well because it is adorable. Just not as adorable as Pumpkaboo.

Image
And then I made an entry for the Subeta contest. I am not surprised that I lost after seeing the pumpkins that won, I'll have to step up my game if they have another contest next year.

Image
So my friend who made the Spook, Rand al'Thor, and Kvothe pumpkins of previous years and I spent half the year wondering what the heck we were going to do this year and then suddenly I realized it needed to be Animorphs. This thing is a beast that took way too long but it looked amazing. It is worth seeing the full size for alternate angles: http://johwee.deviantart.com/art/The-Es ... -489988982

Another haunted house, cause I like carving them. Pattern is from some random carving kit that I can't identify. It made a good warmup for my next pumpkin.

Image
I also spent way too long trying to decide on a MLP:FiM design, before I was like duh, Flutterbat. I like all the cool dynamic poses I can get with ponies, I don't seem to have many for pokemon.

I was trying to figure out which pumpkin you entered into the contest, now I know.

Also that Animorphs one is insanely awesome. I can't believe all the detail that went into it.
Wanna donate towards my drink gallery, the Golden Goblet.
