*UPDATE* Lit version here: [link]
Scene is not entirely original but I added some "improvements" and adapted for a 3 tone pumpkin. This was never meant to be illuminated with a candle but it does look cool lit.
Time: 4 hours
Media: pumpkin, india ink, acrylic white for eyes
Tools: linoleum cutters, assorted brushes
