FightMeI'mIrish -
The old UG Pumpkin carving contest, I had forgotten what it was like to have my living room covered in tiny slivers of pumpkin.
 
And while I agree that the Joe Son pumpkin is awesome in both concept and execution, the competition has arrived, and I aim to win this year.
 
First up: Meisha Tate.
 
 
and unlit:
 
No offense, but that kinda looks like a Michael Tate, post-op. Phone Post 3.0

When it comes to this shit you can only criticize if you can reproduce betterm and even then...

 

Great job FightMeI'mIrish

First off, it was a joke didn't realize the pumpkin contest was a no-jokes-allowed thread. And on top of that to say someone is only allowed to criticize if they make one?!?! If that we're the case, the UG would be nothing but green names.

Lastly, I'd be willing to bet whoever did that Tate one would admit that the face (esp nose) isn't his/her best work!! Phone Post 3.0

I much rather point out qualities rather than flaws. If a person can;t find something nice or positive to say it is often best to not say anything at all.

 

When I look at all these pumpkins I see creativity, talent and courage. 

When I look at a comment like the one above I see envy, regret and shame.

If I were you I'd get my vision checked then, chief.

And just so I understand this completely, let me spell out exactly what you're saying here.... Any entry into the pumpkin carving contest of 2013 on the UG is above reproach and criticism. If anyone happens to notice and point out a flaw, they are actually envious, hateful, shameful people. Evidently you really take your pumpkin carving seriously!!

You may notice that the Mona Lisa has a strange smile, that Edvard Munch painted odd-looking people, or that Van Gogh wasn't great at shadows - but DON'T YOU DARE BADMOUTH A PUMPKIN ON THIS THREAD!!!

Does that pretty much sum it up? Phone Post 3.0

Ok, so here's mine! This was my first time ever doing an actual persons pic instead of a silly pic for the kiddos! Be gentle, lol.

I did Cain first and he didn't turn out as well as I hoped, but oh well:

Dear god, these are ALL incredible!  I can't believe that I'm able to recognize every single face -- I would be really proud of myself if you could tell that it was human, but the level of nuance in these is amazing.  Several of them look like they're popping out of the pumpkin once they're lit, especially the Rogan portrait.  I have nothing bad to say about any of these -- sure, if you're negative enough you can find a flaw in anything, but for every one that you might find there are a dozen things that are just beyond impressive.

Great work everyone!  I didn't know what to expect and I figured a lot of these would be cringe inducing, but damn...  I was wrong.

Kirk and Dr Spock? I thought these had to be mma related?

















j/k. These are awesome. The JDS post beating would have been a good before and after.

Son of Neckbone, I thought about that! I ended up doing their faces from the UFC 155 poster, it was the only one that I felt I could recreate decently with a pearing knife. Next time I'll buy bigger pumpkins and some proper tools and try something a little crazier.

LOL

Anyways, this year it is by facebook voting which should be more democratic or something.

I am going to enter again because it is fun.

Bluenamer, please?

Last year, I went for the classic jack-o-lantern style. This year I thought I'd try something different. I hope you folks recognize my "Talent."
