Legend of Zelda Pumpkin by Elitelink Legend of Zelda Pumpkin by Elitelink
O_o wow, it's been a looong time...years, even.

Anyway, this was the pumpkin I carved for the Anime News Network Contest 2009. No word yet on the status of the judging but I heard there were over 70 entries. >_<! Fingers crossed!

Whole process took about 18 hours. The first 5 or so were prepping the pumpkin and the picture. Finished carving at 3:47am, Nov 1. Hand hurt >_o. To me 18 hours seems like a long time for what the final product ended up being was but it's only my first attempt at any kind of detail pumpkin work.

:wow:
I've seen pictures of pretty elaborate pumpkins, but this is simply the best. It must be pretty difficult to shade things on a pumpkin. The closest I've ever come to anything like this was just a simple outline...

Wonderful job!

^_^ Thank you! Yeah, to get the lighter shades you need to scrape more of the pumpkin away. It was a challenge keeping everything consistent.
