Pumpkin of Doom: Part 1

Flood Pumpkin: Light

So here’s my first attempt at doing that whole “artsy” pumpkin carving procedure involving cutting at different depths to get different brightness levels when the thing is illuminated from the inside. (Cutting shallower also lets you get thinner lines without compromising structural integrity, which is nice.)

As you can probably tell, this is based off one of my previous “flood infection form” sketches. Therefore, being Halo-related and all, I decided to enter it in the annual Halo pumpkin carving contest.

Part 2 will show you what it looks like all lit up and pretty, and by then the contest’s voting should be open, so you can go support your favorite artist with a website that has albino and kraken in its name.

The Flood

Flood Infection Form

Yes, I know… More Halo, but Bungie deserves it.

Anyway, I’ve always found these little guys pretty interesting, so this is a sketch I knocked out during one of the breaks in class last night.

They’ve actually changed quite a bit since their appearance in the first Halo, so I may have to try out the other iterations at some point…
