So let's have some fun with this a Reef Themed Pumpkin Carving Contest!

Start: NOW

Deadline: Oct. 30th 11:59pm est.


Let's make it as simple and fair as possible!

RULES:

1. Carving must be yours.

2. Carving must be newly carved (this year) and be reef aquarium themed.

3. You must post a photo of your pumpkin carving in this thread and it must include something with your R2R user name written on it. (see example)

PRIZE:

We will have 2 prizes. One prize will be given away via random draw from everyone who participates in the contest. The Grand Prize will be the best carved "reef themed" pumpkin chosen by the Reef2Reef Staff. So you don't have the winning pumpkin to win a prize. Just participate!

Nice @Maddlesrain !!

I also drew something similar, a few a clownfish pair with an anemone as well, it's still on paper though, I need to carve it!
Thanks! I decided to sort of wing it as far as sketching out the design, but would like to try again now that I got more of a feel for how it'll go with the tools I have.

I'm excited to see what you come up with!

Pumpkin #1 is a cartoonic rendition of Nem… my black clown (Oreo) in his anemone.

Pumpkin #2 is a reef shark.

Entry #2: this one was a little more ambitious, I think it turned out pretty good:

02CA8788-2245-4C6D-8E6F-22A38C5517D4.jpeg 90A19572-CC97-4A3A-B546-843BA54CCD9E.jpeg 5F2E8688-A327-4E46-8267-73D72A2E8917.jpeg 97BAE968-A3E1-4165-97F2-71497DF32454.jpeg
Edit: for this one I sketched out the fish and then stenciled it on the pumpkin, and then carved all the background stuff freehand
