Uncle Iroh's Pumpkin by DarthKaeru Uncle Iroh's Pumpkin by DarthKaeru
So, a a couple of years ago when Avatar: the Last Airbender came to Nickelodeon and after I finished watching the first couple of episodes, I felt like looking for some Avatar fan-sites and I stumbled onto one. And a little while later around Halloween, the site hosted an Avatar themed pumpkin carving contest and so now it is in it's 3rd year and I thought it would be fun to enter. Here's a link! Here's the site

You all should enter! After all there's a lot of time left to enter!

So the other day in Art Club we were given the opportunity to carve pumpkins, so I begged my friends to let us all work on an Avatar related pumpkin. Thank goodness they are huge fans of the show. *phew*

Anyway, Linhorra [link] , and Feantauriel [link] contributed a great deal to Uncle Iroh. (I really only found the image and did a small portion of the cutting... ^___^; )

Anyway, I hope you people can tell it's Uncle Iroh, uncle to Prince Zuko. (I think I just heard some girls scream somewhere.) Heh. Hope you all like it.

This is really amazing. A lot of people try to do carvings of characters and designs, but they end up messing up (like me lol) but this is dead on.

Did you get a shot of it in the dark when it was lit up? It would be a shame if you didn't with all the work you clearly put into this.

Why thank you! I'm really happy you like this so much! ^___^

My friends and I actually tried to, but the light didn't really shine through all that much, so I just stuck with this photo..... It's quite depressing actually.

You're welcome!

Bah who needs candles anyway? Your work is awesome as it is!

Though did you try a powerful flashlight? That might've worked?

Well done, truly amazing.

I live in Australia, and we don;t have anything like pumpkin carving, so this is very odd site. lol

Yeah, it's a weird custom, but I believe people of my country used to carve squash and the like. It kind of is weird.

We don't even celebrate Halloween apart from an excuse to have a party and get pissed. And even then, very few people do that. lol

All I did was print a picture of Uncle Iroh and then I traced it on the pumpkin. And then I just chiseled away.
