Pumpkin Star Kirby by johwee Pumpkin Star Kirby by johwee
Since the DA carving contest said I could enter as many times as I want, I figure I can drop my good ones in and see how I fare!

It's Kirby! I like Kirby. Sadly, the only Kirby games I've actually played are Kirby's Adventure and Kirby 64. So I can't say I'm a Kirby fanatic. But Epic Yarn came out recently, and someone suggested I carve Kirby awhile ago, so Kirby it is! This one's for you, ~LugiaLuver1!

So I wasn't actually planning on carving this one this weekend, since I've got midterms up the wazoo next week. But, as circumstances happen, one of my pumpkins from home had a rotting spot! So it was carve or die, and I never say die! Kirby was actually quite perfect for this one, since it's really on the small side. It's also carved upside-down, since it's a very strangely shaped pumpkin and that was the only way to make it work.

Design wise, this one was a cinch. Because of the odd shape of the pumpkin, I couldn't make the best use of my transfer paper, so I mostly freehanded the entire thing. Yet another benefit of using Kirby for this one! I decided on a star shape for the cut out since Kirby's round. I think it turned out neat, which is why I'm confident to enter it in the contest.

Blah de blah, I talk to much on these descriptions. If Kirby ate a pumpkin, would he turn into a pumpkin? Someone needs to draw this! Also, hi everyone from Smosh and Gamesradar!
