Catbug Pumpkin by xkappax Catbug Pumpkin by xkappax
This is the first non-my little pony pumpkin I've done in 3 years, I think! Since I started doing shirts for WeLoveFine, I've really come to love Catbug. I've been drawing a lot of him lately, so I decided to do a pumpkin form of him. Hope you guys like it! ^_^ As always, thanks for looking!

It's not the easiest thing to explain how to do, but I actually learned how to carve pumpkins like that by buying one of the pumpkin carving kits in the store and then looking through the booklet of the designs that came with it. The first ones I ever did were from the homestarrunner site. I studied those pumpkin patterns, saw how they worked and then applied it to my own.

The basic rule is to make sure there are enough parts of the design still attached to the pumpkin so that it doesn't fall apart. I made that mistake many, many times when I started out carving pumpkins!

Well, you can carve pumpkins without celebrating halloween. :) Carve them in september and make up your own holiday. ^__^ Or, carve a watermelon in the summer, I've seen a lot of people do that. :)

People actually carve watermelons? I thought that was just in Gravity Falls! But my parents won't let me do anything Halloween based... Not even carving pumpkins... :(

Yeah, the carving watermelons is a thing, I just found that out a few years ago when I started learning how to do the shading method for pumpkins. www.buzzfeed.com/rebeccae/75-a…

Yeah, I just googled watermelon carving and I came up with a whole bunch of them. There was a guy on deviantart that used to carve watermelons and pumpkins. I can't remember his name for the life of me, but I know he did an AWESOME derpy hooves pumpkin.

You mean this? a-female-brony.deviantart.com/… I'm not sure if this is it, I'm just guessing...

I wanna do watermelon carvings now, but I'm just too busy... :( (Wow... I am SO negative)

It was this one, he did it a few years ago. :) His other pumpkins are really awesome, too. www.deviantart.com/art/Derp-O-…

And don't worry, I'm busy a lot, too. :/ I don't get to do half of the things I want to.

Me too! :P Thanks, though. I'm not as good as my husband and my friends at carving because I lack patience and precision. My drawing does not translate to crafts as well as I would have liked it to.
