Planning out this year's pumpkins...

Post by Pumpkin56 » Tue Apr 10, 2012 10:34 am

I know it's only April, but for me, it's never to early to start thinking about what the next years crop of terrors will be. I not so great at creating my own designs--I usually just think of what I want and if it's not out there to purchase, I just describe it to one of my artist pals and they can usually create it for me. Two that I think I would like to do this year are Pennywise from IT and maybe the Creeper from Jeepers Creepers. Thoughts?

Hey Z. I actually already have a Sam and a Wolfman in my collection. I've thought about Nosferatu as well, but never really got around to him... My wolfman is the Lon Chaney Jr. one but I've been talking to one of my artist buddies about creating a design from the Del Toro film. There's a scene at the beginning that just for a second when the Wolfman is chasing Ben Talbot and you just see his hand and claws. I'd like to give that a try.

Here's the Sam and Wolfman I already have:

I'm always looking for pumpkin pattern design Idea's , and the reason I hit these boards.
And there's some good ones posted in this thread. :)

1) Creeper from Jeepers Creepers
2) Pennywise (I already have a Pennywise on my site)

But Have a new scarier one in the works.

3) I also Like the BeetleJuice in your Sig.

Nah - it's never too early to plan, on what to carve.
I'm in the process of getting into the swing of things, myself.
Already created 100 new patterns for the 2012 season.


If your into Horror Monsters,
There's tons of these pumpkin patterns already on my site. :wink:

Hey St0ney--would your new scarier Pennywise happen be showing his teeth? There's a picture of him that I found on Google where he's kinda looking up with his mouth open and you see all of his sharp monster fangs.

Btw, I love your site--one of my favorite pumpkins that I carved a year or two ago was a Bela Lugosi that I got from you :)

I know the one your talking about,

This one is a full face - it's about 1/2 Done.
I get board quick, so I start these and finish them later.

Here's the one I'm working on.
