Didn't expect this, did you? It's post Halloween carving!
In this bonus edition of the 2010 carving season, we've got the Helmaroc King from Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker! It kind of reminds me of Ho-oh, which is probably where I came up with the idea. Ho-oh was an easier carve though. I figure he goes well with Ganondorf from a couple weeks ago.
This probably isn't my best work. I was a little apathetic with it, since I kind of carved myself out on Halloween. But I had this huge pumpkin leftover, and it would be a waste to let it rot. It was a pain to transfer the pattern to the pumpkin, since I didn't have my usual saral paper and the stuff I did have was fussy. I probably could have done a better job if I was more careful, but my heart just wasn't in it. not my worst though, all things considered.
He's one of my favorite boss battles from Wind Waker. Who wouldn't want to smack a giant bird in the face with a huge hammer?
