The Ghostly Trio by johwee The Ghostly Trio by johwee
Continuing with the ghost pokemon, we've got the original Trio, Ghastly, Haunter and Gengar!

I've actually had this pattern for years. I made it back in 2007, but didn't get around to carving it. But I revived it for my spooky theme this year, and I'm glad I did! The original ghost trio are classic, and it wouldn't be Halloween without them!

I gave alternate views since it's a little on the wide side, and I wanted to show the details on Haunter and Ghastly as well. It was carved on another rotting pumpkin, hence the lack of a bottom, but I think it came out rather well anyway. I had a lot of fun with it.

Do you still have the pattern for the ghost pokemon and would you be so kind to send it to me? 
I would love to make this one as well.

Unfortunately what I have isn't a real pattern, exactly. I basically just layered the Sugimori artwork for all three together so they overlapped a bit, and then eyeballed the outline. That tends to be how I do most of my pokemon pumpkins, actually ^-^ But I still have the layered image if you want to give it a try?

Yes I would definitely like the image to give it a try.
It makes it a bit easier for me to work from some sort of pattern.
I have been doing it for 7 years, but only one a year, so things are still a bit tricky for me.

Can you send it in a reply or do you need my email address for that?

So this year I decided to try this style of pumpkin carving for the first time and chose to carve Haunter. Well while I was looking up various pictures for reference, an image of this popped up and I realized I just had to borrow your genius and carve the whole ghostly trio. It took me about 8 hours to get it done, but I managed to complete it. It was totally worth the blood, sweat, and tears; my pumpkin was a huge hit with the neighborhood! So thanks for the inspiration!!! Let me know if you're interested in seeing how mine turned out.

So what kind of tools do you normally use to make these?
Reply

johwee Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
For cutting I use both a Warren Pro Pumpkin Carving Tool, and an exacto knife. Shading I use a Dremel Pumpkin Carving Rotary Tool, plus a bit of the exacto knife again. I've got an assortment of other tools for the odd thing every now and then, but those three are used 90% of the time.

Ok great! I love carving, but the only tools I use to do mine are those cheap pumpkin kits you get in the stores and I have been meaning to get professional tools soon.
