Celtic Emblem by PunkBouncer Celtic Emblem by PunkBouncer
Listening to: "Lord of the Rings" soundtrack

Approximately 600+ individual pieces to cut out; 10+ hours of carving, each of the 12 circle weaves taking 30 minutes. Tools: exacto blade, mini flat-head driver. Design is not entirely original, but composited and adapted for a pumpkin by me.

Alternate view (older)

I reeeally love this carving. I would like to know if I could use the design from the pumpkin in this image to create a skin for my Gaems Vanguard Portable Gaming Enviroment? I can send you the final image I have created if you'd like.I just cannot and would not have the skin created without your permission. I would very much appreciate it as no other symbol will work as the emblem for my skin.

I definitely like this view better, so I went back and undid the favorite of the other view. I am still amazed at this. I've tried my hand at pumpkin carving... so I KNOW how difficult this is.

This is so awesome it looks like a photoshop.

By the way, out of curiosity, what do you do with the pumpkins afterwards? Eat them?

thanks! to answer your query, there are a few possible outcomes for finished pumpkins: 1.) give them away, 2.) display them until they rot and then compost, 3.) recycle them (use bits for other pumpkins). ironically, i don't like pumpkin pie... but i toast the seeds at least :)
