This was probably my most time-consuming carve yet. (Getting the cut-out pieces out of the forehead without collapsing the design was a challenge. I also had to rinse it several times while scoring just to see what I was doing.)
It is! It's interesting to watch my thought process as I go through the process of carving. When I make the pattern, I am very confident. When I see the transferred lines on the pumpkin, I'm convinced the whole thing is going to be an irredeemable mess. This continues as I score the flesh off of the more complex parts. I am never sure that it looks good until it's done and I light it up.
