According to my sister, that should be Chinese for House of the Pumpkin. Too bad DA doesn't allow Chinese characters in the title. I am almost out of different languages to spell the title, same as I am out of good haunted house/castle patterns after this one!
I've been meaning to carve this one for a few weeks now but this has kind of been a slow month for me. But I got it done despite being highly distracted by watching Rise of the Guardians. The pattern is another from Pumpkin Masters, they make pretty good haunted house patterns if nothing else. I really like this one, I think it turned out pretty well. I think it might have looked cooler with the moon shaded and the bat solid, but there's no going back now.
Hopefully the first of a couple carvings this weekend!
