.:NARNIA:. the Pumpkin by lavonne .:NARNIA:. the Pumpkin by lavonne
My pumpkin carving this year.. took me 5 hours with one of those scrapers from the pumpkin carving kits. The pumpkin is huge!! I carved it on Halloween after a party, so it was too late for the contest which ended on the 30th... which makes me a little sad. Next year i'll be done in time. The pictures still dont do it justice. The carving wraps all the way around the pumpkin, those dark spots were really hard to carve and i cant use my right hand very well cus it hurts so bad from carving this.

1-2: Aslan portrait details and zoomed out
3-6: Sillouette of Mr. and Mrs. Beaver, Lucy, Peter, and Susan on a hill over looking the witches castle of ice
7-11: Castle turning into tribal/celtic knot design and back into the wardrobe in 11
12: detail of wardrobe with hangars and one coat and open door leading to trees
13-14: Lamp post in woods detail and zoomed out
Last Two pictures: Pumpkin in light and sized next to my left hand

YAY!!! I worked so hard on this pumpkin it looks nice.. too bad it will rot in a few days...

Look forward to next years pumpkin, i'll probably be doing a Lord of the Rings.. but not too sure yet.

~lavonne out.

:new: This pumpkin was too late for last year's pumpkin carving contest, so i seem to be able to enter it in this year's contest! -^_^- Still hoping to get another pumpkin carved this year, not sure when though. Gonna be a pirate theme if i can get a pumpkin and a few hours of 2 year old free time. :new:

This is one of the greatest pumpkins I've ever seen. Ever.

It really is a shame that a pumpkin's nature is to...you know. Rot. :( Shame indeed.

Beautiful work.

WOW!!! O.O Holy crap that's awesome!!! I can believe it took you 5 hours. I've made complicated carvings that have taken me anywhere from 4 hours to 9 hours. I've posted 2 of my pumpkin carvings and plan on posting one more in the near future. I don't think I'd have enough patience as you to shave around a whole pumpkin like that though. It's really cool! Awesome job!
