The Cutie Mark Pumpkin by johwee The Cutie Mark Pumpkin by johwee
And here's my other MLP:FiM pumpkin for the year! I actually thought of it before the Twilight Sparkle one, but the thought of a weekend carving unicorns on fire was too tempting to pass up.

Not my usual style, but it's fun to switch it up every now and then. It's all the cutie marks of the Mane 6, arranged in the same way as the Elements of Harmony. Sort of. I arranged the pattern myself, based off the vectors made by ~BlackGryph0n.

Seeing it finished, there's actually a lot I would have done differently. I'm not all that happy with the result, it needs more contrast. Rainbow Dash's mark gave me the most trouble.

Maybe I'll try again someday, but I'm short on time this year.

I wanna try this next year! You should create a stencil for this!

I particularly like the Rainbow Dash one! You can actually see different colors in the lightning bolt!

I can probably post the pattern for this one, although it's kind of a difficult carve...

I was really worried about Dash's mark, since it's a rainbow and I've only got orange to work with. I'm glad it turned out well!

Trust me, you aren't just a simple pumpkin carver. I could never do anything as remotely awesome as that!! I can't even do that layers thing you did for RD's cutie mark to get that different coloration!

Oh, I thought they were random carvings at first (You know, like randomly doodling but on a Pumpkin XD)
Hmmm... Still pretty good
If I didn't knew where this was actually from, I'd still say its a great ornate piece

I can see how making the contrasts would give you trouble, the cutie marks are actually complex in a medium that isn't forgiving. Even with all of that you did a wonderful job and this is one of these things I'd stare at for hours if I happened to trick or treat nearby.

Thank you! I think the toughest thing is not knowing how it's going to look until the very end, so there's not much chance to change things.

I hope I get trick or treaters this year, it's my first time living on my own and not on a college campus!
