Helmaroc King Pumpkin Style by johwee Helmaroc King Pumpkin Style by johwee
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?

Probably from the same place he finds all his monsters. Which is a good question on it's own...

How much would you have to feed it though? It can't snack on wary heroes all the time.

I wish I could carve like that. How do you get the thinner parts in without going through? Because I want to try and make a seamstress :iconseamstressplz: pumpkin carving.

It's hard to describe, but the basic idea is that you want to peel off the top layer of skin. You can use a lot of tools to do it, like a clay loop, or a scraper that they sell specifically in some pumpkin carving kits. I personally use a dremel, where you kinda etch away at the pumpkin skin.

I'm playing with the idea of making a video tutorial this upcoming Halloween, which will hopefully be much more clear than my random description.

Good luck with yours!

I LOVE IT!(and the boss) The Helmaroc king is my FAVORITE BOSS EVER!!!!!!!!!!!! To bad you can only fight him once every file...well at least I got a BADASS hammer out of it!!!:D

Yeah, the once every file thing sucked. Like, you get to fight all the other bosses again in the final dungeon, but not the awesome Helmaroc King :(

Not ALL the bosses...what about the boss in the Tower of Gods...

Yup, that's the name of the guardian in the Tower of the Gods. I'm not sure why, Zelda boss names are weird.
