Jack-o'-lantern








... I was trying for Mona Lisa but didn't pull it off, so now it's just a face.

It's weird, right? Fun to make.

It's okay for a first attempt at this kind of thing. I've never done it with the skin being cut away and the features remaining before.

I think it is Mona Lisa. She's just finally given in to the urge to smirk. *laugh*

Thank you! I was happy with it, even if it wasn't quite the Mona Lisa.

Cool. Neat work. Eeriest Mona Lisa I have ever seen.
Few know this, but the Mona Lisa's smile is because Pen Pal was checked out of our library today.

!! so happy!!
Was it really? Yaaaay! That's what I hoped for. Thank you *so much* for making that possible ♥

The hard part was figuring out how to keep the various parts attached!

Very cool! I like how the nose and mouth come out from the side...

Thanks--that was what was hardest.

That's a gorgeous face.

Thanks--it's a bit of an odd face, I think, but maybe odd faces can be gorgeous? I think. Yeah, I'm pretty sure.

Better than the original! I always though Mona was a little too subtle for me...

Fantastic carving, it took me a while to see how it was carved, it looks like a gel projection.

Yeah, photographing it in the dark makes for all kinds of weird effects. It looks to me sort of like layers of tissue paper with a light behind them.

Very nicely done!


And, loosely related,
I thought you might like this guy's work...

Sardonic, maybe? Or gently amused? Who knows!
