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 end of the Fall Festival. Please refer to the eventual Overview thread for this final date. Please note, this contest is being posted early, so no Overview thread is available yet.


Notes

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

You need to put your Username and Date on a piece of paper (or something) inside the picture. =P

Also, please edit your main entry or it most likely will be overlooked.

Deleting the other post so as not to be confused later on.

Bunny jumping over a fence!




I used a picture of a baby bulbori for reference for the bunny :)

I hope that's okay. I know we can't trace but I didn't really "trace" it

your carving looks really nice! I'm really impressed because your bunny looks exactly like a baby bulbori, I wouldn't have been able to copy it as well as you

Krin, I got a question.... on your rules list #3, it states: " If you are tracing an image for your entry, you must have been the one to originally create that image! ". Does that mean that the design has to be totally original? As I usually research different designs and mix and match them for a theme....

We had an issue last year where an entry was submitted having used a tracing that was not originally created by the submitter. The fairest thing I think to address this is to just have a rule where if you do trace something onto your entry, you must have created the tracing.

I'll add an exception: Unless the thing you're tracing is an asset taken directly from Sylestia (such as our pets, avatars, monsters, etc).
