Art of the Pumpkin

It's Halloween again and that means it's time for one of my favorite activities of the year, pumpkin carving, and so I decided to start a thread where we can show off our ponylanterns. 

Here is my contribution for the year.  It took me about 16.5 hours total and the pumpkin weighed about 33 pounds before gutting it.  The pics don't really do it justice, especially the various shading caused by the various depths of the carving.  Celestia's horn only looks crooked because of the curve of the pumpkin.  Confound these thin lines that won't stay straight when I cut deep around them, making it look like Celestia has an adam's apple.

Thanks guys.  Because I have such a busy schedule this will be the only one I do this year, but I did three pony pumpkins last year that you can see on my DA page in the link in my first post.

Re: Art of the Pumpkin

I had some free time Monday (for the first time in as long as I can remember) and an extra pumpkin that's been sitting around since the middle of October, so I decided to carve Trixie from the promo for the new episode this weekend.  http://archiveit1.deviantart.com/#/d5mhq61

Re: Art of the Pumpkin

Quite awesome... unfortunately no point in me making one for out here in the middle of nowhere. We get 2-3 cars passing by all day if that. No one to see it hmm

Especially like the Pinkie one!

Re: Art of the Pumpkin

Thanks.  One more here, probably the last one for this year.  The pumpkin had a tendency to flake apart a bit, hence all the rough looking parts:

Yeah, when I refreshed and saw my pumpkin on the front page I was shocked.  I felt sure that they would give the header image to number 73 or 79.  I'm not sure why Seth screwed with the brightness of the picture though.

Re: Art of the Pumpkin

I had a small pumpkin sitting around since Halloween and a bit of time yesterday, so I decided to carve it just for fun.  Nothing really spectacular in ths little pumpkin, just the Hub logo: http://archiveit1.deviantart.com/art/Hu … -413439127
