Pumpkin of Wisdom - Princess Zelda by johwee Pumpkin of Wisdom - Princess Zelda by johwee
And we finish of this year's pumpkin season with what may be my favorite pumpkin of the year, if not ever.

Ever since I carved Link, I've wanted to carve a matching Zelda pumpkin. At the same time, she's got a lot more layers going on, so it was a bit intimidating. I decided that this was the year for it, but ran out of time to carve her. What better carve for some post-Halloween carving shenanigans?

I'm in love with this pumpkin. I want to marry it. It took a whopping 9 hours. I watched over half of MLP: FiM Season 2 while carving this. Between all the details and layers, it was a really tough carve. My livestream couldn't handle the awesomeness, and my computer crashed twice. I'm so happy with the result that I have no words. Except for this long description.

While my Link pumpkin is based off Phantom Hourglass, and Ganondorf from Wind Waker, this one is based off the artwork from Spirit Tracks. Kind of fitting how that worked out. And now I've carved all three bearers of the Triforce! Go me!

That is super-awesome! I was wondering what sort of tools you use for the relief parts? I tried my hand at a multi-layer design this year and the x-acto knife I used just wasn't working. If I do another one I'd like to make it easier on myself.

Now that I think about it, I'm not sure which Zelda is my favorite... I kind of lean a bit toward Tetra, since I love pirates, but ST and SS have super awesome Zeldas as well...
