Pumpkins! (Kuroshitsuji/Black Butler SPOILERS)

Most years I know what I'm going to do for a halloween pumpkin pattern weeks before; this year the exact pattern eluded me. I wanted something that would top the difficulty level of last year's and also spoke to me, but that never quite happened. So I picked two that appealed and left it at that, not worrying about topping previous efforts.

Both images are Kuroshitsuji/ Black Butler; one image is a promo poster and the other a screencap from Kuroshitsuji II, and combined they look pretty damn spoilery (though they still don't give away as much as you'd think), so, if anyone wants to go unspoiled for Kuroshitsuji II (I'm looking at you, son_of_darkness) DUN CLICK.

Pumpkin pictures are unretouched!

Preview #1:

The original screencap:

Because I intended to carve the lettering, rather than to cut away everything except the lettering, I had to invert the image for a template:

Preview #2:

The original poster:

And the template I made from the image:

What I learned: Faces are a lot easier to do when they're LARGE. It was hard getting the little faces on these two even as accurate as this, and I never did arrive at "perfectly happy with it." But it was fun all the same!

Happy Halloween, everybody!
