Gaming Pumpkins

Here in the Eastern Time Zone, Halloween has less than two hours left. Still though, that's 100 minutes I have left to post this.

This year I decided to only do one Halloween pumpkin with a gaming theme, and I wasn't even able to do what I wanted to because of time constraints. Still though, I thought I'd post them and share my pumpkins with the readers and encourage you all to link to yours as well. If you're reading this after Halloween, just pretend it's a "Harvest Pumpkin" thread...

This year I did one as an owl (which I'll throw on at the bottom of this entry) and one of Commander Video from the Bit.Trip games. Here he's represented from his Runner stance but I was originally going to also cut out his standing stance on the left, his Fate 'leaping' stance from Fate, and then shave the pumpkin to allow for that rainbow type thing to shine through. Alas, I only had time for one, and the lines to emphasize my point. Still though, it was nice for a quick little job.

Last year I had more time, more pumpkins, and perhaps more ambition.

This one was my favorite and a completely original idea from me. The Cow from Harvest Moon.

Here I used the shaving technique and a framing-style to allow myself to have a solid cow but still have the thing nicely defined. I also did this Wario pumpkin (though admittedly from a stencil). It looked great on a pumpkin this size and shape.

Finally I did Totakeke, or K.K. Slider from Animal Crossing. He was simple but great nonetheless.

The year before that (or maybe it was two or three years) I also did this Hylian Crest Pumpkin. It was quite a hit back then and still people seem to love it now. I personally love how the light shines through, as if it were some activated crest from the game. The Legend of Zelda: The Pumpkin of TIme.

Many of my pumpkins can be seen as best-picks from the contest Kotaku did last year. The file names even say DrF so you know I'm not bullspitting you. So to finish this out, I want to ask anyone out there to link to their own works of art. Seeing other people's pumpkins is a great pleasure of mine, especially when they're gaming related. Again, if you're reading this after Halloween, just pretend it's open to holiday gourds. Happy Halloween everyone!

(Just an owl looking creepy, but believe me, I did consider Kaepora Gaebora...)
