Beth (my daughter) insited that we do a Yoda. I suggested making a sculpure out of  two Cantaloupe melons as the skin is the right color & texture, but the boss said no.

Congrat Chris, Steve & Beth. You guys have made it a great competition this year. clapping

I have a couple pumpkins in the house, warming up. But I'm still looking for a specific shape. I have to go get groceries in a half hr. So I'll look to see what they have at the store.

Then I'll try and get started on mine tonight.

It was a challenge carving the dome.  That pumpkin is from my mother's garden.  And for some reason, all the pumpkins she grows, are harder then hell.  The skin is thick and tough, and the "meat" is usually 2" (48 cm) thick and hard as hell.  I should have gotten out the chainsaw. lol!

James, that gif, is exactly how it was to turn out, in my head. cheeky

Interesting, I had no chance  rofl  that's my first participation award lol

I'll try to elevate the game next time. You guys all did some great work! bowwing

I especially enjoyed Poncho's great use of the thin sections & cut-out highlights to make a more complex image.

Agreed, I like the way Chris (Poncho) scraped away some of the skin in places and completely cut it away in others, great effect mate, I might try that next year cheers
