I'd like renew this one and make a request for next year! Creepshow patterns would be awesome!! The 2 I'd like to see most is zombie Nathan Grantham from the first story & the Crate beast (aka Fluffy) from the 4th story! Pretty please with a cherry on top :D

Thanks for the kind words everyone :) Hopefully I'll finish off the entire group next year. There were 1 if not 2 VIP patterns (this year) that have now moved up the carving list!

Nice to see some carves from you, jonmf77! Those are some detailed designs you chose, so I can see where you might be critical of your success level... but... I think they look great! Even what you might consider an imperfect carve will knock the socks off spectators. I've been using the same stock...

2 more funkins that I carved about 2 weeks ago :) http://i900.photobucket.com/albums/ac206/jonmf77/photo1_zps4ff5b40f.jpg These next 2 my wife and I just did last night on REAL pumpkins. It's been about 3 years since we've done that. I like the way they turned out....and now onto making the pumpkin ...

If this movie had been made on it's own and not associated with the Halloween (Michael Myers) series it would have been a hit! IMO it's pretty solid!

Thanks again guys. Hmmmm...so it seems (Funkins + Transfer Paper = No Bueno) Looks like I'll be sticking to sticky sheets or the old fashion way of hold punching. As side note, from expierence I find the Michael's pumpkins much easier (and cleaner) to carve (using the heat knife) than carving Funkin...

Thanks everyone for the kind comments! I really appreciate it :) One thing I forgot to mention. These two I did were Funkins. I'm wondering if maybe Funkins aren't so transfer paper friendly? I was running into trouble just taping the patern down so I guess it would make sense that the transfer didn...

Hey everyone, It's been awhile since I've posted so I figure it's time to get back in the mix. Decided to carve a couple new ones tonight, but I'm not completely happy with how they turned out :( Problem was I used the transfer paper, and pressed pretty hard, but alot of the lines didn't show up cle...

So another Halloween in the books. This year was a whirlwind from start to finish for me. Every year I decorate my house from top to bottom. For any of you who have seen my videos from 2011 I made a few changes that I though were for the better. Feel free to critique...I'm always open to suggestions...

Really kinda weird that this pattern showed up when it did. I was just watching the OG Halloween last week and during the intro, thought to myself to bad Ryan doesn't have that pattern. Sure enough....a few days later...BAM!!.....there it was :D Only problem now is I have to replace a pattern I alre...

I'd love to see Darkness from Legend thrown back into the main site.....Just my 2 cents :)

It looks like only one side of the bag is cut so how do you actually do the cuts/carves? Put a piece of wood or something inside the bag? And what type of lights did you use? Love the colors!!

Awesome carves! Really really smooth lines. I really like the luminaries too....How did you do those? I'd like to give that a try myself.
