    In the Spirit of Ubuntu and Halloween! - Check out my pumpkin!!!

    I recently carved a ubuntu pumpkin and though u guys might like to see it. I'm actually gonna put it out on the big day. I carved it in about 1 hour and i didn't have any stencils, and it might the circles might look too small, i did my best. It looks really good right in front of me. Enjoy and feel free to comment!

    Oh and i took these pics with camorama and blue is w/o color correction, looks cool as blue!

    That's really cool! I remember last Halloween someone carved a Tux into their pumpkin and posted it on the forums.

    Great idea! Instead of handing out teeth-rotting sweets, hand out some Ubuntu CDs to the kiddies! Heheh... I am only half-kidding though. Gotta have the Kit-Kats... mmm,

    Thanks for the feedback! Unfortunately, i left it here in the computer room and, well, today i found it and it was a pile of goo and mold. Yesterday it looked fine, had to throw it out. I'm gonna make another one this time with a stencil. I also gave some cd's lying around (only about 3 or 4) that i could put on the pumpkin for HAlloween, but i don't thinkt the kids around here would be all excited about ubuntu, though maybe some adults. I'm onl 13 myself. Anyway, As I said it's my new quest to make a new one, but thi time i want to keep it for years to come. There must be a prosuct i can use to solidify it or plaster it, if anyone knows anything product like that please post it. I want to keep it in my room as a lamp, or maybe as a p lol! I ahev an old pc i could use, but i would definetly need something to soldify the pumpkin 100% so it wouldn't rot again. I saw an earlier post that that guy dried it out, should've done that. Man that would be so cool, and i can't wait to make another one, but if there is no way to soldifiy it, right before halloween.
