I made a Koffing pumpkin for halloween this year in memory of Ryan Davis.

I've done a few video game themed pumpkins in the past but this is the first time I ever tried shading in a pumpkin carving.

If anyone else has a cool pumpkin they made (video game themed or otherwise) I'd love to see it!

Well done!

I'm still whittlin' on mine, maybe I'll throw a pic up later.

Holy shit that's really good!

#4 Posted by Sunless (15 posts) -

Thanks guys! Looking forward to seeing more hopefully, there are a lot of really talented artists on these forums.

@toowalrus: Wow, that's really fucking good. So is the OP's.

This ain't off-topic! This is as on-topic as can be!

Sick Koffing pumpkin, yo. But how did Koffing become the defacto Ryan Davis memorial Pokemon? It was always Jeff that was most into Koffing, I thought. (and yes, I know about the Olly Moss picture)

If I recall correctly, Ryan was totally into Koffing as well. Also, it's a good alternative to that kind of freaky Ryan-chu picture.

Those are really cool. I have a ghastly pumpkin and a Manny (from grim fandango) pumpkin from the last few years aswell, I'll post some pictures later when I get a chance.

@mormonwarrior I remember Ryan mentioning on a few separate occasions on the bombcast that seeing a picture of Koffing would instantly cheer him up.

i am looking forward to some hot-ass pumpkin carving/shaving action in this thread, gaming or non.

Good stuff.

#12 Posted by CynicalBuzzard (238 posts) -

I wish my pumpkin could be that cool, my carving skills are not the best.

#13 Posted by Gamer_152 (13970 posts) -

Beautiful. I'm sure Ryan would have really appreciated it.

OOOOH SHIT! now we gotta make this the "Offical 2013 Giant Bomb Pumpkin Carving Thread."

#15 Posted by RawknRo11a (507 posts) -

@i_stay_puft: yes, but currently there is a severe lack of pumpkins in the thread!

where are the pumpkins!?!?!?

#16 Posted by Itwongo (782 posts) -

@thoseposers: I need to look into how to shave pumpkins. Both of these look awesome.

#17 Edited by BaconGames (3123 posts) -

Great stuff!

#18 Posted by Sunless (15 posts) -

@i_stay_puft Good idea. I'll try to keep the ball rolling with some of my previous efforts. Here are some pumpkins my girlfriend and I did last year, her Panda-kun from Polar Bear Café on the left and my Ghastly on the right.

@itwongo I use lino cutting tools to do mine, you should be able to find them for fairly cheap online or at an art supply shop if you're interested.

Also Ghastly was a rear projection pumpkin.

#20 Posted by HatKing (5557 posts) -

Dude. Holy shit. I am dying to give this sort of thing a shot. I've always been a pretty decent hand when it comes to drawing weird shit, and something about carving in a pumpkin is speaking to me. Unfortunately, I'm lame and didn't buy one to experiment with this year. NEXT YEAR.

#21 Posted by I_Stay_Puft (2590 posts) -

@sunless: Liking the pokemon vibe going, I'm assuming Gengar next year?

#22 Edited by joshwent (1775 posts) -

The detail in the shading of that Koffing is... super effective.

Well, fucking, done!

#23 Posted by TheManWithNoPlan (4423 posts) -

I'm impressed.

#24 Posted by chiablo (847 posts) -

Not gaming related, but look what I made:

Awesome Koffing Pumpkin! Ryan would love it!

#26 Posted by Tireyo (6382 posts) -

Never even carved a pumpkin.

#27 Posted by TheSouthernDandy (3626 posts) -

That's great! The other stuff in this thread is too.

Off topic-ish, but here's "Edgar Allen Ho"

#33 Posted by Sunless (15 posts) -

This is my Manny from a few years back. That's all my pumpkins, keep on posting yours!

@sunless: Liking the pokemon vibe going, I'm assuming Gengar next year?

Maybe, the sky's the limit, I think there are about 2000 pokémon to choose from now.

Holy Batmans, Batman.

That is sick. The rear projection adds so much awesome.

I love these threads, all the ones posted are awesome as hell.

Even dudegloves'.

Especially dudegloves'

#35 Posted by MormonWarrior (2482 posts) -

@bbalpert: @sunless: Well I suppose we can agree that Giant Bomb in general is a big supporter of Koffing. Now that I think about it, both Jeff and Ryan liked Koffing a lot.

#36 Posted by jasbir (107 posts) -

#37 Posted by Imst (61 posts) -

#38 Posted by mideonagain (14 posts) -
