Mojo carved a pumkin of the first Frankenstein for my wife & I. It's awesome. Looks like the real thing and the carving IS the real thing.

Great work Mojo. I really like the new Frankenstein as well.

When are you going to try your hand at actual Tiki's?

Well, GMAN's given me the tiki itch.

Quick intro, My name is Art and I've been friends with GMAN since he was in college with my best friend waaaaaaay back in the late 80s-early 90s. I'm a member of a couple motorcycle and homebrew forums and have joined here as a place to see GMAN's (and now other's) work. So far I'm amazed at all everyone's different styles.

Here's my very first tiki. After finishing a classic Jack-O-Lantern I grabbed a chunka punkin and did a few rough cuts.

Soon I may take up the dremel and cut a couple bar taps.

Hope you guys like this newbie's first piece, proudly owned by my neice.

Artsonsafari, Nice way to start the itch. Not bad for a left over chunk'o Punkin'.
I know you have been around for awhile but Welcome to TC again anyway.

Mine was somewhat loosely based on a Bosko wall mask I saw some time ago. I opted to do some rough cutting with a carving tool on the edges of the design as well, to give a more “rough hewn” look to it.

Oh, and it is unintentional, but I think this pumpkin looks a bit like a luchadore mask.

Cheers,
Gwen Smith

All these pumpkins are fantastic!!!

I just did one and it took me 3 hours (including prep and cleaning) but I didn't know what I was doing. I think i now have my carving groove on, and have a better feel for it, but alas, lack the patience and time to do another. I'd really like to do a tiki. I used a pumpkin carving kit and an x-acto knife and came away woundless. Poor Scary Teddy was supposed to have at least 4 more teeth...

If anyone is looking for a tiki pumpkin pattern, I made up a template from my Marquesan address sign.

You can download it as a jpeg
here.

I used it yesterday, I'll post a picture of the finished pumpkin tonight!
