Pumpkin head by kissel71 Pumpkin head by kissel71
I wanted this guy to seem like he grew that way, kinda like he was just setting there just waiting for someone to pick him. After sculpting I airbrushed shades of brown then finished with orange

THANKS EVERYONE!! I'm super happy that one of my favorite pumpkins has been seen, fave'd, shared, and commented on so much! If you want to see all of my pumpkin work in the upcoming year go to www.facebook.com/kisselstudios and feel free to like it or just let me a comment to let me know what you think!

Oh wow you carved it and then airbrushed over that?  Interesting!  When I saw the category was culinary arts I thought maybe it was a cake.. and then I saw pumpkin carving and was very confused.  I thought you sculpted something onto the pumpkin, lol.  You definitely achieved your goal though!  I totally looks like it grew that way and when you picked him he just opened up his eyes.  So cool!

Happy Halloween to you too!

I wish I would've taken a picture in a pumpkin patch at night.

 

I'm super stoked on my 1st DD!

I'm particularly impressed with the airbrushing.

You can't really tell it's carved unless you touch it.


And the eyes hit the uncanny valley perfectly.

I've airbrushed for the last 16 or so years, and the airbrushing is what really set it off.

 

Thanks again!

Thanks for the Great Pumpkin. I used it in a composite at www.pbase.com/image/153156643. I didn't see any rules posted but gave you credit at my site. If there is a problem just let me know and I'll take it down. Great work on the pumpkin by the way.
