Noh Mask Pumpkin by johwee Noh Mask Pumpkin by johwee
The third pumpkin of my big theme group for the year, which was inspired by my trip to Kyoto this spring. The experience changed my life, so I knew I had to carve some pumpkins based off it.

Now I started getting a little experimental in design. I wanted to carve an Oni mask from Noh plays, since they're kind of creepy and fitting for pumpkins. I also got the chance to see some live Noh while in Japan. It's much more entertaining in person than it is just watching a video.

I found the stencil from ~Branbot here on DA, but it's more of a spray paint type design. Not very good for pumpkins. I experimented in adding shading spots for support while still trying to create the look of an entirely cut through pumpkin. I'm still not sure how I feel about the finished results. I think I should have tried something different with the eyes to get them to stand out. But I learned things, so I'm happy with that.
