"Touch me not! I am Red Death stalking abroad!"
~ The Phantom of the Opera, Gaston Leroux
Happy Halloween 2008! Here's my pumpkin, inspired by both Phantom of the Opera and by E.A. Poe's original tale, The Masque of the Red Death. It's only one pumpkin carved all the way around, had to take four pictures to show all the sides, and put them together in Photoshop. Used photo references and drew my own patterns. The actual words on the pumpkin say (side 1) "I AM RED DEATH" (side 3) "STALKING ABROAD". Had the clock face pointing at midnight because that was when Red Death was said to appear XD
Drawn on the pumpkin in pencil, carved using pumpkin carving and wood carving tools. (2008)
