Jolteon Watermelon by johwee Jolteon Watermelon by johwee
Well, this has been a long time coming. All the way back in 2004, before Glaceon and Leafeon even existed, ~Snow-Eevee requested that I carve all of the Eevee evolutions on watermelons. 7 years later, I've finally finished! So this one's for you, ~Snow-Eevee, even though I'm not sure you're on DA anymore.

I had a couple of reasons for taking so long for Jolteon. First off, Jolteon is my #1 favorite Eevee evolution, and one of my overall top favorite pokemon. So I really wanted to do it justice, and make it the best watermelon I possibly could. The other reason was the difficulty in making a pattern. The original Sugimori artwork would have made a really awkward carving, as I learned with the Flareon carving. This design is much better, I think.

So until they release more evolutions for Eevee, that's it for me! I may redo some of the older ones later, but watermelon season's pretty much over by now. The pumpkins are beginning to surface :D

Thanks! I've been out of the watermelon carving loop for awhile now but it's still a lot of fun. Just need to not be busy in the summer.

Haha, yeah. I have a really brightly lit up picture, but it looks too harsh. I like the dimly lit versions better, they have a good balance of showing the watermelon colours while keeping the jack-o-lantern glow.

You're welcome ^^...eyes are always the most difficult part for me, with anything I craft, because I want them to be perfect. I think the eyes really show a lot of personality =D

Thanks! The bright parts are cut all the way through, but the mane and other parts are shaded, or cut only part of the way through.
