Jack o' Lanterns
« on: September 27, 2020, 04:24:39 PM »
This is a thread to show off your Jack o' Lanterns, and also to make your Jack o' Lantern templates available to everyone who might want to carve a pumpkin but maybe doesn't quite know what to carve just yet. Today, I created this template for The Rock, with the trademark raised eyebrow. I haven't made the pumpkin yet, but hopefully once I do I will get a chance to share that here as well.


The part spanning the bridge of the nose is a challenge. If you embark on this pumpkin, you're gonna want to make that part wedge-shaped so it's thin at the surface like the image shows, but thicker further into the pumpkin. I think. We'll find out.

For how terrible the template is this thread should be in complete nonsense.

It's wonderful. I don't know why you try to hurt people so much.

I'm sorry. Am I to understand that when you have a boner you like to imagine punching the shit out of Tom Bishop? That's disgusting.

I feel no pain, he can't hurt me with his silly nonsense words. I know awesome when I see it, and this pumpkin will be super-awesome. Sokarul's pumpkin will probably a relief carving of his favorite salt crystal.

Do you really think the eye section will hold up?

It will. Clearly you didn't read the instructions and aren't using your imagination in the slightest. Now the real question is, what will your pumpkin look like?

I think a pumpkin carved like The Rock would be hella cool.

You could also do a cone head pumpkin. You just need to cut the ends of a few pumpkins and glue together for the elongated shape. 8)

We don't carve pumpkins in here. Our traditions involve chestnuts and sweet potatoes.

I'm going to go for the Shepard Fairey with OBEY:



Problem is here in the big city, things don't last very long hanging out on the stoop. But maybe the smashing of my Jack O'Lantern by some stranger is a part of the art itself.

The plane is to cut out the white part right?

You don't necessarily have to cut out anything.  You could just shave the skin of the pumpkin off in some places.

Sok, you seem like one of the marauders who will come around and smash my pumpkin. Just know that I will hit back twice as hard. Your poorly rendered jack o'eggplants will be mash by the time I'm done with them.

I agree, it's gotten out of hand. I mean no matter where you are I can still hear you when you dream. You may think you've traveled very far, like a star, and you are. So you all just take this thread very seriously, it's nothing to make light of...

I did this one last year (or the year before!)



then made soup with its innards, never just throw away the inside.
