Gargoyle Pumpkin by ChaosKomori Gargoyle Pumpkin by ChaosKomori
Whew! This little fella took about 9 hours to do, though that includes gutting the thing and scraping down the insides because they were some crazy 3" thick. It was a pretty big pumpkin to start, about 18" tall and 12" in diameter. It doesn't have a lid anymore; it's carved all the way around.

The gargoyle part's been skinned so he's lighter than his surrounding buildings, and the flesh dug-into to give him some shading (which was really hard to capture in photo). I think I probably should've taken a bit more time on his body, because it's not as detailed as, say, his face. Still, I like the final result.

Holy CRAP dude that is bloody awesome! XDDD Okay the perspective on those buildings is that an optical illusion or is it just naturally "shaded" that way; on the left? That is so freakin cool XD I'm jellybro! I have to carve something STAT D888

The light colored buildings on the left are actually carved out of the sides and back of the pumpkin. :3 So those windows were made on the inside part.

Nah, the video on my camera doesn't let me choose the light settings, so it winds up darker than the photo. :c
