Step 3: Cutting!

Now the action! Time to get chopping!

I used the large chisel type blade to chop out the major detail.

Top tip!
start from the middle and work out. This keeps the pumpkin strong. I chopped out the large bits first which was a bad thing to do!

I then changed to the smaller angled scalpel like blade for the more delicate work.
Hah, fancy finding this. I just carved my pumpkin last weekend, I went for a head-on (sorry about that one) perspective.
Here's my attempt! &lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;&lt;a rel=&quot;nofollow&quot; href=&quot;http://img147.imageshack.us/my.php?image=img7902px9.jpg&quot;&gt;http://img147.imageshack.us/my.php?image=img7902px9.jpg&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br/&gt;<br/>

Honestly, the picture is a bit too close and is kinda hard to make out as what it's suppose to be. I can see it fine in the thumbnail, but looks off to me in the full size too. I'm sure it looks great though.
