This is my next Instructable for pumpkin carving.... How to carve The Dark Knight. This is an extremely detailed carving. Feel free to use my pattern if you want to give it a shot!

Step 1: Step 1: Choose your image.

In this case, I chose an interesting image of Christian Bale as The Dark Knight. It is important to pick an image that has enough contrast to allow for good light/shadow interplay. For Batman, the light playing off his armor provides some excellent (but challenging) details that I thought would show up amazingly well on my pumpkin. His strong stance and look in general also makes for a great presence when lit.

<p>Wow!!! Did you use any other tools than the X-acto knife?</p>
I used an x-acto knife almost exclusively. I did use sort of a scraping tool that comes with those ready made pumpkin carving tool kits you can buy at the store, but only for a little bit of the background. Otherwise just an x-acto knife!
<p>Thanks Man!</p>
Simple enough???
:O! Ingenious! This is a great idea.
This is absolutely incredible! Kudos!!
&quot;<em>Simple Enough!</em>&quot;<br> <br> Are you kidding me? THIS IS EPIC. I wish I could carve pumpkins as cool as yours. I guess I'll just have to stick with the old classic pumpkin face...
Thanks for the nice comments so far, guys: ). I forgot to include a picture of the tools I use... I will do that as soon as I can.
All I can say is WOW!!!!
