Okay, so, again, I did one side at school, and the other side at home cause I didn't end up liking the one I did at school:

And this is the side I did at home:

And what they look like in the dark:

Proof I did this:

Where I carved, where I took the candled picture, and the drawing I used for the first side that turned out too complicated.

Dirty pumpkin lol The insides of these things are awful feeling >< Those other two pumpkins are family's.

Trying to find a marker that would trace on the pumpkin was overly difficult -_- Was on the last shape when I found one. And then I learned that you should tape a tracing to your pumpkin and stab through that! Man.

Thought I might have bitten off more than my feeble arms could manage lol Only just got through the eyes and was tired. (We apparently aren't supposed to use knives, either. They should really make this information bolded and unavoidable to see when pumpkin hunting lol)

Just wanted to show off my hand(s)~

After an hour of stabbing repeatedly in an effort to make circles, just the circles, I had finished carving my pumpkin! So much stab and twist for the tiny tiny circles...
And then the lights were turned off, and light shone through the areas I were getting worried would be too thin for it lol

Bonus! Cousin-nephew-creature with the other two pumpkins.
He helped with the one on the left (<), and enthusiastically (read: forcefully) assisted with all gut scraping.

(And yes. The cookies in some of those pictures were very good.)

I decided to do a pumpkin based off a sketch I did last year

Rough sketch

The bottom is really bright in this one because I was using a flashlight to light it up

Stars around the edges

I had an acorn squash that I decided to use for the carving.

Looking for something that would fit on such a small surface, I decided to try doing the head of the frankendog held item. It's these held items.

This is a drawing I did to take with me to work on the table.

The inside of the squash was very much like a pumpkin.

I tried drawing on the squash itself. This later turned out to not matter at all cause I messed up quite badly and had to use the other side. I still felt like including it though.

I decided not to bother drawing a second time on the squash. Instead I just looked at the drawing I did on the paper and just did my best to imitate it on the squash.

Finished. I realized I had accidentally done the carving a bit too tilted but I was able to use the little top of the squash that came off to prop the squash up so the carving's more where it should be for the picture.

Lit up. I think this is my favorite picture since you can see the ear tufts better than the one with the room lights off.

And with the room lights off and squash lit up.

Okay... so I waited until the last day to make mine in the desperate hope that I could get something to carve other than a baby carrot... ^_^; Failure. So here's my Hatchling Lunemara baby carrot. ^w^ It's very difficult to carve a baby carrot (in case you are unaware xD ), so it took a nice chunk of the day. ^_^; Hopefully at least some of the finer details will show up since I had to use my webcam. ^_^;

My Photobucket Album with all of the photos. I took multiple photos of certain positions to try to show things that wouldn't all show up in just 1 photo...

Some specific photos of note in case you don't want to look at all 22 photos in the Album:

1. My poor tiny victim and weapon of choice...
2. Carved my sketch lines and began carving forms... From the bottom...
3. Main carving complete, before finer details. From the top.
4. Carving completed, adorable "feet" on bottom.
5. Carving completed, can you make out the texture on the top and the feathering detail on the antennae?
6. Completed, on its side so you can see antenna, "feet", eyes, and mandible at the same time.
7. A fun thing about working with baby carrots is that it has some translucent properties and can still do fun things with light like a proper jackolantern. ^D^ I tried to pick out 1 photo for this list that showed this the most all-around. ^_^

Aww, the cute lil' caterpillar is climbing up the knife handle... *w*
...I could not eat the baby carrot after I made it into a Hatchling Lunemara like I had originally planned. :< I just could not bring myself to do it... D_D;;
