Holy shit.

I guess 'Pumpkin Carving' is a type of art now.

Great job to the winners, and even the follow-ups (not really to them, though).

Two years in a row and I didn't win once. Fuck this, I'm never craving something for newgrounds again.

Great pumpkins, I think my favourite is the madness one. Though that Dirge one is still bloody impressive.

Just curious, my Halloween Flash hasn't been put in the collection, will it still be considered? Not that I expect to win or anything (no chance!), but it would be nice to know it was looked at.

Holy shit, I came fourth, I can't beleive it!

The comments from the judges were fair, my carving and shading were off. The brighter bit is where I tried to show shading, but it looked shitty, so I stopped. Unfortunaly you can't Ctrl+Z on a pumpkin.

I'm happy to be below the top 3, they were truely immense (ReNaeNae's especially, the precision of the carving is unrivaled). PhantomZ's entry didn't show much carving, but didn't need to with a setup like that. It's nice to see some originality, some 'thinking outside the box'. He deserved that spot. ArkySB's Steve was just downright awesome.

Thanks to all the judges gave their comments, though I think I'm gonna go and cry at Mindchamber's. :'(

Thanks to Tom aswell for putting me in the top 6.

I'm off to PM Bob!

Thanks. Yours was good too, simple, but well carved and precise. The idea of using marker pen was really good, it's nice to see users bringing in new ideas.

I personally think my pumpkin should have gotten in the top somewhere. XD

The Dirge pumpkin that got first place was very smooth and well-carved, but I liked the second place winner more because of its creativity. It would never have crossed my mind to make pumpkins the heads of Madness Characters.

Congrats to the winners!

Same. I just wasn't much in the Halloween spirit this year. Ah well, there's always next year :)

I'm guessing Tom, being a business owner with a lot at stake under Obama's tax plan, put in his vote for McCain, who's also a strong advocate of free speech and internet neutrality.

But that's just a guess.

Wow, these are all good. I don't know how well mine would have fared if I entered. I spent all morning putting the design on it, but realized that I scraped away too much skin when I started to carve it. Everything started falling apart, which was when I punched a giant hole in it. There's always next year, no?
