Vincent Jack-o-Lantern by love-mist Vincent Jack-o-Lantern by love-mist
*holy music*
Tadah! This is my pumpkin this year! I must say this is probably the best jack-o-lantern I've ever done. I was very nervous about how well it would work as you can probably imagine.
This took somewhere from 2-3 hours over the course of 2 nights including cleaning out the pumpkin. I created the pattern myself from a wallpaper of Vincent Valentine (thumbnail shown top left). I'll be putting up the pattern momentarily, but be forewarned, it is quite difficult.
Happy Halloween everyone! :D

The original image and Vincent Valentine belong to Square-Enix.
Pattern and carving by me. :)

Lol, love-mink totally freaked when I showed her this.

UPDATE: Pattern available here! fav.me/d1orf6h

Thanks! :D I've been carving pumpkins since I was a kid. When I got older I got bored with the designs in the pattern books we would always use and started making my own.

How on earth did you carve this without the small sections snapping off O,O

Very. VERY. Carefully. :XD:
Most important tip: BE GENTLE.
My technique for cutting while applying minimal force to the less sturdy sections is to move the saw blade up and down quickly while going through the section more slowly. That way it only shaves at it little by little as it progresses and doesn't catch enough to push too hard.

I've actually been thinking about doing a little tutorial on how I do jack o lanterns. Mostly as an excuse to play with flash. =P

This is singlehandedly one of the most badass pumpkins EVER. :faint:

Im usually the one that gets to be the pumpkin carver, so I have a pretty good idea of how hard those tiny little details can be to get just right.

Thanks! :dummy:

Definitely. My sister and I each do one, which is easier now that she's older and doesn't need so much help (once it's cleaned out). Although she has started wanting to be creative with designs too. Gone are the days of using pattern books. :XD:

Finally decided on an idea for this year. My sis is really set on doing Jack Skellington (just his face), so I think doing one of Zero would make the perfect pair. :nod: He's so cute. :heart:

Aww, that'd be amazing! Ive seen some people do the Jack face on a ghost pumpkin, which does seem more fitting, or just spraypaint the pumpkin white. Either way, with that kind of skill, the result is probably going to be epic. X3

And yeah...I cant remember the last time I dropped some money on a pattern book. Last year, I free-handed a side view of a cats face, and put purple rope lights on the inside. That's why I was zooming around DA for some ideas this year, and found your design. I might go with it, because me and my friends are dressing up as the cast from FF VII, and I get to run around as Vincent. Be fitting to have a pumpkin of myself. XDD

Yeah, but I dunno yet about her skill. =P Hehe, jk (only cause she's right next to me)
But a white pumpkin would be brilliant!

We have a couple books that we've had around for years. We just always copy the pages.
That would definitely be cool! If you do, I'd like to see how it turns out. :D
