Charizard Pumpkin Redux by johwee Charizard Pumpkin Redux by johwee
So here we are on the brink of October, and I've got an awesome Charizard pumpkin coming at you!

I've always felt kinda meh about my last Charizard pumpkin. It was the last pokemon pumpkin I did before I got into my groove of carving, so I never did it justice. And what else is there to do with a pumpkin I didn't do justice then to try again?

Better pattern this time, the old one was pretty boring. The pictures ended up a little weird because this thing's on a good sized pumpkin so it wraps around a bit. There are a few parts that are a little funky but the overall carve is pretty good I think.

For this one I actually streamed the whole thing on livestream. It was pretty fun, thanks to everyone who checked it out! I I can figure out how I want to make a highlights video of the recording from the show. Fun stuff like yelling obscenities when stuff falls off!

This is amazing! <333

How did you do the parts where you only cut off a thin layer of the pumpkin? Is there a certain tool or technique for that? I love carving pumpkins and I wanted to try out that kind of effect this year >w<

I always appreciate epic pumpkins.
If only I could carve a straight line.

Thank you! I actually don't have to carve too many straight lines, honestly. They're all curves and stuff.

Thank you! I'd say I found my talent in 2002, when I first carved a pretty decent Pikachu and realized that pumpkins could be more than just triangle faces.
