It Is Finished...

Or at least as finished as it's going to get.

Ever since Scott over at Tortured Pumpkins announced he was running another of his Build-Me-A-Pumpkin contests I've been pondering a design. Frankenstein's monster is my favorite character so that was my initial thought. Someone beat me to it and I didn't want to do what someone else had done. Besides that entry is a fine specimen - I absolutely love it!

So, back to the drawing board... I considered several other pumpkin designs but finally decided on being myself - a Ghoulie Girl. I thought perhaps something girly and ghoulie and semi-creepy all in one.

"Ghoulie Gourd Girl" has sat on my desk for a couple of weeks now. I think that she could still use some shading and touch ups. I've tweaked her when I have had time and while I'm not convinced that she's done, she's as done as she's going to get. We are sneaking away for a few days for a much needed break so my deadline is now. (The actual deadline is midnight August 11.)

If you haven't already, you really need to pop over to Tortured Pumpkins to see all of the entries. I'm so glad I'm not a judge as it would be hard to choose.

Also I'm sending out a big THANK YOU to Scott for running the contest. I haven't had much time the past few years to create much of anything and for some reason this contest lit a fire under my butt and got me going. If nothing else I've got a nice little piece of Halloween art for the new studio.

Haunt on!


  1. Ahhh thanks Dawn! It was fun to do :)

  2. Absolutely love the design and yes what a great piece of art for your studio...the judging is this coming of luck!

    P.S. This really makes me want to see more of your creations....

  3. Thanks Scott - you are too kind!

    Hopefully there will be more creations to come. My skills are a bit rusty but I think it will all come back to me ;)

  4. That is very cool! Absolutely perfect for you.


  5. Thanks oh Queen of the Frogs! I quite like her so I think I'll keep her around ;)
