Decided to try my hand at designing a pumpkin for the Think Geek contest.
Behold! The Portal Pumpkin!!
I’ve included two different versions. One where all the pieces are simply cut out and one with a mixture of cut out and shaving down the skin to make it thin. For best results, carve it on two different pumpkins and light one with a yellow light and one with a blue light. I’ll post pictures of my carving as soon as I get it done.
The Instance podcast had a contest this week to make your own FigurePrint. I had a ton of fun, though there were definitely a few setbacks. Behold, Amelinda the Blood Elf warlock of AIE.
I found out yesterday that the cut off for entries was today. So it was a long night last night and I wish I’d had a bit more time. But I’m really pleased with how she turned out. Because of my issues with indoor lighting, I had planned on taking the photo outside. I woke up this morning to pouring rain. Fortunately, rain stopped and the sun was out just long enough for me to get some great shots. I took a bunch in the garden, but the best ones came from the wall of the cemetery across the street. Very appropriate, I thought. I’ve got some in progress shots as well as the finished ones in an album for your enjoyment. Just click the image above. The in progress ones stop abruptly when I realize I only have one more day to finish.
