Phoenix Rising Pumpkin by strryeyedreamr27 Phoenix Rising Pumpkin by strryeyedreamr27
I absolutely love how this pumpkin turned out!!! :heart::floating::heart:

It should be noted that this is only the third pumpkin I have carved in my entire life (at least to my memory).

Much of the design was inspired by [link] A phoenix image I have been fond of for quite some time.

Time taken: approximately 6 hours.

Hope you like it as much as I do!!!

[NOTE 3.7.2012] Um...yeah, I just did a simple search here on dA for "phoenix" and I found the artist of the inspiration for this here, on dA :pointr: ~oreozili and the piece is:

I really don't know how I missed this!

Thank you! It definitely took much longer than I expected...luckily it was a fake pumpkin so all of that hard work didn't disappear in a few days as would happen with a real pumpkin.

This is breathtaking. Great efforts here! Pumpkins don't always need to be ghoulish as you've proven. ;)

I love works like this. :love:
Is this a Craft Pumpkin, by chance?

Haha, it looked like it. I'm even more impressed in that case. I've always found Craft Pumpkins to be harder to carve.

Thanks! This was actually the first time I've ever carved a craft pumpkin, so I'm really happy with how it turned out!

It's really nice. :)
May I ask where you got the pumpkin? It looks a lot better than the Craft Pumpkins I bought this year.
Sorry if it sounds like I'm harassing you. Just really curious, haha.

No prob. It's a Funkin brand pumpkin that I got from Jo-Ann's. Hope that helps!
