That is a beautiful design choice for a pumpkin. I have always loved the original painting but never would have imagined seeing it this way. Too bad pumpkins rot since such a lantern would be a nice feature at any time of the year :D

It was sad to see it rot, but the fact that it was so temporary made it all the more special.

That's true - sometimes the fact that something only lasts a while makes it more special. It's like - nobody would care about seeing an aurora if they happened everywhere all the time =p

A few hours, maybe 3. I started out slowly, but as the cuts got deeper I started getting more and more reckless cutting ever deeper to bring out more contrast.

wow, thanks everyone! :boogie:

For those who are curious, I actually used a dremel with a spiral drill bit to carve the details.
It worked pretty well because it did let me carve in brush-like strokes.
Make one hell of a mess with the pumpkin-goo-dust going everywhere, but it was quite fun to do.

Beautiful work you have done here :-) It is really impressive how much detail you added in that carving on a pumpkin.

Amazing how much work you did for a artwork which will be gone by now...
