Sublime Pumpkin by AliWithAnEye Sublime Pumpkin by AliWithAnEye
:pumpkin: As Halloween was approaching this year, I came to the realization that I have never really carved a pumpkin before. I watched my father carve a few when I was little, but I never actually carved one myself. So I decided to give it a shot. Coming up wit my theme was relatively easy, I was inspired by one of my favorite bands and decided to carve the "Sublime Sun" into my pumpkin. Well, lets just say I had no idea how much work it is! This pumpkin took me about 2 days to complete. I used wood-carving tools to carve it, which honestly was much easier to use than the standard pumpkin carving kits you get from craft stores.

:pumpkin: In order to make some areas "glow" without carving it completely out, I thinned the inside of the pumpkin first and then carved thin strips off of the front, so the candle lit up the areas I wanted to glow, like the ring around the face, his cheeks, outline of the mushroom, etc. I used neon paint to paint in some details after I was finished carving and let it dry!

:pumpkin: I know It probably could have came out much better, but for my first time carving a pumpkin, I am pretty satisfied with it!
