Pop Quiz: Jack-O-Lantern

It’s Halloween Weekend in the U.S., and while last week I challenged you to make a mask, this week I’m inspired by Blue Blazer’s nifty Justice Pumpkin. So I’m tasking you to:

Make your own Halloween Pumpkin in HeroMachine 3!

If you don’t feel like making your own basic pumpkin shape, there’s one in Head-Zombies (both with and without pre-cut eye, nose, and mouth openings). If you prefer an alternate pumpkin shape, one of the tips in Hammerknight’s recipe card from a while back might come in handy as well.

You only get one entry — that’s right, just one! So make it your best. Most of the other rules are the same as for a regular challenge, but instead of a whole week I’ll announce my favorites some time tomorrow. Here’s how to make an entry:


(Click to embiggen.)

I’ll pick one entry as my personal favorite, which will get to be featured in the side bar to the right for ultimate* glory! As a bonus you’re allowed to say you won the Internet for a few days.

Good luck!

  1. I was hoping you would do this. I was thinking about emailing you about this one.

  2. Hullo all…

    Ok,ok, I guess this is cheating a bit… but count the top pumpkin as my entry if you must. The rotten, post Halloween garbage day pumpkin look.

  5. Where are you all finding pumpkins, or are you all making them?

  6. Designed for that greatest of sports, Punkin Chunkin! Intended as a logo to be painted on the side of an air cannon.

  7. ChromeKnuckles, it says right in the contest post (emphasis added):

    If you don’t feel like making your own basic pumpkin shape, there’s one in Head-Zombies (both with and without pre-cut eye, nose, and mouth openings).

    It’s the fourth sentence, right after the massive headline saying what the contest is.

  8. heh heh heh

    This one was somehow more fun than usual . . .

  9. More of a carving than a Jack-o-Lantern…still cool tho…

  10. Yikes. I tried to edit, to put up an improved version, and it called me ‘undefined.’ If you get both, take HerrD-GrampaJack3. Sorry for any inconvenience.

    djuby, your link is broken. Please fix this, as I’m sure if it’s the same picture that I say you post in your gallery, it would be a shame to see it get disqualified because of a bad link.

  12. Something quick while I wait for paint to dry…workin on the house all weekend but this is MY most important holiday every year, so I couldn’t let it pass unrecognized.

    (For those interested this one was made using 8 cresent moons from background shapes with 2 heads from aliens. The top stem is the stake from items misc.)

  14. Myro: djuby, your link is broken. Please fix this, as I’m sure if it’s the same picture that I say you post in your gallery, it would be a shame to see it get disqualified because of a bad link.

    It was a different pic. Wasn’t happy with the result after posting it. Requested that it be renoved.
