Gaara Pumpkin by ElvenDeathMarch Gaara Pumpkin by ElvenDeathMarch
My favorite part of Halloween is pumpkin carving. This year I decided to carve a Gaara pumpkin.

It was much harder than I originally thought it would be. I'm used to just drawing the pic on and then carving, but Gaara was disagreeing with me. So, instead I traced a pic of him, made the necessary changes to it for carving ease, blew it up, put it up against the pumpkin face, and poked holes in it along the lines for a dot to dot effect. ...cept when I was done I couldn't remember which dots were which. So I actually wound up using a sharpie to clarify things...and even then parts of it got messed up. Still, he turned out so awesome! Heehee!

Gaara is from Naruto.

Carved: October 31, 2009

Lol. You should try it out. It's a lot of fun. Course it can get frustrating when things go wrong...and they always go wrong for me, but they are so much fun to look at when you're done. I love carving pumpkins. They are the only thing that makes Halloween fun for me. :D

That's cool about the kanji that it's working out now. That one always gives me trouble.
Ah, I hope they let you. It's fun. Yes, you do have time. It would be cool to see any one of those. XD If you got three, you could do Itachi, Naruto, and Tobi. :heart:

What kind of servant would I be if I didn't?

I was gonna do it master...but after his eyes rebelled and fell out of his pumpkin head, I just couldn't bring myself to risk it. That and I got him done just as the trick-or-treaters were walking to the door. I didn't have the time to do the world dominatingly super cool kanji. ^^; So I did the super lame yet cute little heart. Awwww...it's so cute. :heart:

I'm going to have to think of something awesome to carve for next year. I might paint my pumpkin red and white striped like Wally/Waldo from the 'Where's Wally?" books.
