The following are a couple pumpkins I have carved in the last few years. This year I'm hoping to successfully carve one like the two pictured above where the skin is peeled off and the flesh is carved with woodcarving tools.
This Jack Skellington I carved from a white pumpkin I grew myself,
and is one of the top ten carved pumpkins on DeviantArt!
This is one pumpkin that I carved Harry Potter and Voldemort on.
I will post this years pumpkin(s) on Halloween. Have fun carving!
