(2016) Hands down my favourite 'traditional' style pumpkin that I've carved.
(2016) Not sure what I was going for with this one, but I like it!
(2016) I don't know why, but this chap just makes me want to hug him.
(2016) Not so sure about this one, mabe too much gap in the middle?
(2016) What can I say? It's a classic pumpkin.
(2012) - A slight shift in the traditional pumpkin style. A much larger mouth and removing the eyes all together. The biggest change was that I carved out the teeth rather than the more traditional space between them. This was to make it more effective from the end of the garden.
(2015) - Tiny little pumpkin. This took maybe 20 minutes.
(2013) Continuing my tradition of doing more 'regular' pumpkins as well as the photo style carvings, this year I went with what is my most classical looking pumpkin yet. The large mouth looked nice, but increased chances of the candle being blown out. It didn't, but lesson learned for next year.
(2014) - Really wanted to do a very traditional pumpkin. The mouth extends around 3/5ths of the pumpkin, which I really like. Not so happy with the eyes, a little too childlike.
