For My Next Pumpkin


Q*bert

This is my first time using different shades on a pumpkin. I went too thin next to the eye so now it looks like he just woke up and he can't wipe the gunk out of his eye because he has no arms.

For what your need - Word Verification here???

Jenea said...

You can to say me, in a first, you carving this pumpkin and then you cut stencils??? How you make it!!!! Say me please...

Jenea said...

Topanga said...

LOL... Jenea. You hold the world's record for as many posts as there are minutes... and twice as many questions ;-)

Is Q*bert still around? I haven't seen him since the old Atari machine.

Jessie At Home! said...

Very Cool! I want to try carving a pumpkin like that, I just never seem to have the time without toddlers running around!

Jorge Garcia said...

Geez Jenea.

Ok. I added word verification to slow down the people who sneak adds into my comments.

And for this one I drew the picture on the pumpkin and started shaving it down.

I made a lot of stencils last year but this year I'm trying to draw freehand.

Jenea said...

Thanks for response on my all question!!! In this years I want to make (In a first time in my life) a few of them--pumpkins!!!

Alisha Rene' said...

LMAO, no arms to wipe the gunk. Pulling out the old school with Q-Bert, I'm very impressed.

Kate said...

Wow. I don't think I've heard the word "Q*bert" since the mid-'80s. Good one!

Nobody said...

You're quite the talented guy, Jorge! Very impressive! I remember Q-bert...*sigh*, the memories....

Rhonda said...

Jorge,

Thanks for posting your pumpkins. My kids and I have been waiting weeks for these post! You guys carve some cool pumpkins!

This guy reminds me of the creatures from the legend of zelda games.But tell us what that last pumpkin you carved was. We all have different opinions on what it was. And none of us are sure.
Thanks!

Nikki Stafford said...

LOL! Q*bert!! Blast from the past... These are so brilliant. Ever since your post last year I've been waiting for the great pumpkin carving posts this year. I love carving pumpkins, but kind of suck at it. Now you've given me some pretty serious pumpkin-carving envy... ;)

Sebastian said...

Wow. This is simply amazing Jorge. I can't believe you dig Q*Bert. In case you got an iPhone, the official version is on the AppStore :-)

Still waiting for plants vs. zombies though. Since you posted about it I can't wait for it to hit the AppStore.

Anyway, have a wonderful Halloween, can't wait for next year's pumpkins :-)

jennY said...

hmmm.. i have never tried shaving a pumpkin before...i think i will give it a try!

also, i heard that rubing your pumpkin with a lil vaseline around the edges will help prolong its life...now i have never tried this myself....but...anyone feel free..

Malea said...

Ah Q*bert. So fun, simple and addicting. What would he say when he missed a square? I bet you have some theories:)

D said...

Oh he's so cute.. I love Q*bert, too. :)

M said...

Hey! I'm a fan from Spain. It's really nice to see you on the internet. You are a great actor and your character is one of my favourites on Lost. Aka "PERDIDOS". Have you heard your ADR voice in Spain?

In Spain Halloween is like a new holiday so we have to work as another day but on November 1st we celebrate "Todos los Santos", so it's kinda the same. Party at night, horror look... We even took the "truco o trato".

James Hernandez said...

Jorge,

Too talented!!!!

Jewl said...

Nice! This Island is just about out of pumpkins! Luckily I found one today... Good thing or my kids would have disowned me!

Checkie said...

Very cool and inspirational. I think I'm going to try my hand at a Tomb Raider pumpkin now.

Lisa said...

I really need to buy some pumpkin carving tools. It seems that they work a lot better than the kitchen knives that I've been using. Any recommendations?

I think you have the best punkies ever... I'm so jealous! I used magic markers so I can make pie this week.. ;)

Erin said...
