John Wayne Jack-O-Lantern by ~Revelation-Six. An amazing carving of an American icon of rugged masculinity on what would have been John Wayne's 102nd birthday today. A visit to this artist's gallery will reveal a large array of equally impressive pumpkin carvings. ( Suggested by Exillior and Featured by Kitten-of-Woe )

That is just too amazing. I love John Wayne. My father and I would watch him a lot late at night when my father came home from work. My father still watches the old tapes. you've done a fantastic job.

How on earth do you carve like that on a pumpkin? I can't imagine your house around Hallowen.

Stunning work, do you ever photograph them unlit? it would be lovely to see the details from that perspective as well.

Congratulations on the DD :heart:

I have several photos of them unlit. I may link one but honestly, they don't look like much. Since most of my carvings don't use shading (partial shaving of the pulp), they just look like gourds with a bunch of random holes punched out.

Thanks for the comment. I visited your gallery. You do some nice work with jewelry.

I really like how the thickness of the pumpkin adds another shade of color in there. It adds a lot more to it. Amazing job.
