Project description

As I've mentioned above, you can use the tools of your choice, a graphic tablet or just paper and pencil. You can even do a vector or 3D rendering of your pumpkin if you like. It might also be fun to do a real pumpkin and submit a photo here. The image that you upload will be automatically resized to 640x480px. You keep all the rights for the image and you are free to use it for any future projects even if you win the contest. The only thing that we request is that the Halloween Pumpkin  you submit here is done specifically for this contest and not an old work of yours.

The winner will be determined by the poll open to all registered members of the DC community. I am sure that the members will judge the creativity, the drawing skills and your sense of humor. Just as usual, the winner of this contest will receive a DC t-shirt from our store and will move one step closer to enrollment to the Elite Design Team.

  • Tnx Robert, Im pretty pleased myself, and i will keep on this style for next challenges! And you're right about the pumpkin. I should have made him to... ah, maybe later this week ;)
  • ALX, really nice...congrats! p.s: you forgot the little sad/fat pumpkin:))
  • Not again, "cepukovic", or "awang31". Trying to pull of the same as last time? Or did they all buy computers last week?
  • scarrryyyy .....
  • wht'z it? Tommato?..
  • Nice Work.. Haunted Me!!!
  • @Sharie; I hand-traced each line with a caligrafic-like pencil. The hardest part was to keep in mind where some lines start (thick), and where they end. It really gives you that pen-and-ink-look. I could have autotraced it, but would have been a totaly different outcome. But i'm quite driven with it, (it's my job after all) and got the drwawing traced in about 30 minutes. I saved the traqces as .EPS, imported it in PS. (Don't pixelerate the layer, keep it smartobject and it stays sharp.) I only used PS to create te underlaying colors. I reopend in Illustrator, and placed the artwork in a mask, underneath the strokes. Voila. You can print this one as large as you want! The pink in the face is just like the rest; only color and soft brush.
  • About #520 - It's getting better ;)I would say the shape of the pumpking could be better (higher polycount on curves, gives smoother surfaces, esp. on the pumpkin "crown" area) That nose could still be a bit greener. But for your first 3dmax, very nice. I myself use blender, but max is more commercial!
  • This is interesting , scary pumpkin LOL. The only thing is it doesn't look like it is going to rot anytime soon. If this has some shriveled look and discoloration your idea might show a bit better, but then again maybe it is the thought of going bad that is scary
  • Very nice. You have put a great deal of work into this one. It takes a lot of illustrator work when you go from traditional sketch to illustrator. I do that all the time and it can be hard to get the desired results and that is what I wanted to ask you..did you get the results you wanted transforming the sketch to the illustrator vector file? BTW I like how you made the face skin watermelon pink flesh color
  • Oh this poor pumpkin. Can you imagine the headache one would have with all those nails. Creative and nice 3d work. I wished this wasn't so dark, Some lighting,brightness/contrast adjusting would show off your work a bit more.
  • Very nice work DesignsbyALX, I like this one allot.. :)
  • @designsbyALX hi.I use 3ds max for modeling and Vray for rendering,photoshop . sorry just learning and just want to participate. :)
  • Nice job!
  • elp
    Been trying to upload a jpeg for a while, and it will not work, is there something wrong with the site?
  • @ Taufik; hey, 3d, always like those! What program did u use?!
  • Sorry reeni I missed the entry earlier, not sure why I didn't see it. Ok This pumpkin is crrepy like and that vine with the hand holy cow don't pick this thing! I do wish this was a bit more clean looking, it looks fuzzy or is that the effect you were going for
