Traditional Pumpkin Carving Contest


The object of this contest is to carve your own real pumpkin!

This is the Traditional Carving Contest!
There is also a Digital Contest, which can be found here.



Rules

1. You must submit one entry of a carved pumpkin. If no pumpkin is available to you, you may use a vegetable or fruit alternative. However, no other types of carvings will be accepted.

2. You must provide a minimum of 3 separate pictures of your carving process along with your Username and the Date physically displayed somewhere in each picture. You may provide a lit/unlit version of your final entry. Here is an example of how this should look:


You do not need to post them in a grid like this. I just did this to save space.

3. You must actually be the one to create your entry! While assistance is fine, you cannot simply have someone else carve for you and then claim credit. If you are tracing an image for your entry, you must have been the one to originally create that image (Unless what you are tracing is a Sylestia asset, such as our pets, avatars, monsters, etc)! The main point of this contest is to have fun and to get involved in something outside of the digital world. So just do your best and have fun. =) We want to see your creativity!

4. Please do not reserve posts. Only post when you are ready to submit an entry. If your entry is still ongoing, you may post early with the progress that you currently have and edit your post as you finish.

5. Please do not ping me unless you have a specific question or concern that I need to address. Thank you.

6. The due date for submitting your entry is by the posted end date in the Fall Festival Overview Thread, which will be posted once the Fall Festival begins.


Notes

If this is your first time attempting to carve a pumpkin, here is a helpful guide on the entire process:

Hi, are there options to paint/decorate pumpkins instead of carving them?

The idea is to carve in some fashion. We would probably be okay with some accented painting if you wanted, but we would like to see it carved to some degree.

That's the answer I expected. I only asked because my school is offering pumpkin painting, but I don't think there are any carving options.

Silly question - would we be allowed to carve something that isn't a pumpkin, but is similar? Stuff like
- Potatoes
- Beets
- Squash?

Watermelon even? xD

Edit: Somehow missed the first rule. Pingpoligies D:

Just to answer the question for others - yes, as per the rules, you can use an alternative if you cannot obtain a pumpkin.

Hand drawn picture I'll be using for the pumpkin.

Carving started



Carving Complete

All lit up. I didn't put the lid on because was afraid the candle wouldn't get enough air and the dumb thing did not want to light, lol.

The second picture is focused on the tombstone.
