NOTE: These pictures are not of the highest quality.  It is not easy snapping a picture of a bright pumpkin in a dark room and get the focus/exposure proper.  I now have a digital camera and can experiment more (without wasting film) and can look at the results and retake them as opposed to getting the film back long after the pumpkin has rotted... *S*  Also, all of the images below have been further optimized for quicker loading on your browser.

I hope you enjoy this new addition.   Look for photo's of my 1999 pumpkins this November!

Spider web 35KB Side view of the Scary face #1 pumpkin, showing the spider's web (you can *just* see the beginning of the Farmer Brown scene on the back of this pumpkin.
Scary face #2 (Lit) 13KB Another trademark design.  different eye design.  I tried using black marker to bring out the fangs. It seems to work well.   Note the two bats on either side of his nose (noses are the hardest aspect for me to come up with. I haven't done a nose yet, that I'm happy with)
Scary face #3 (Unlit) 21KB Yet another tradmark pumpkin.  my favorite eyes to day. still don't like the nose... *S*
Scary face #3 (Lit) 15KB Lit version of above.  Note the dark spot on his cheek.  This is the beginning of a rot spot.  There was no indication of this (softness, or anything) until I first lit it and noticed the darkness (indicating trapped moisture)
