Thank y'all much!!
My left pointer finger wasn't as complimentary with that big old blister…
but hey, it was Benny...
so all worth it!
I have been drawing that picture for years and years [it was taken in Spring 1998], so can do it in my sleep now!
Draw/outline then you can do it more than one way.
On the movement shot, I taped the outline on the pumpkin. Then used one of the turkey baster pokers [that you tie the string with and jab in the turkey] and "poked" the outline. removed the paper and cut it out!
On the head shot, I cut the outlie out then used a ball point pen to outline my picture. I took off the picture and drew the face on it. this one is CARVED quite deep into the pumpkin. When the candles are in it and it is dark outside, it is really cool looking:
