This pumpkin (which I'm now entering in deviantART's carving competition) won the Grand Prize Sweepstakes in my family's annual contest, as best overall.
The design is pretty simple; it's similar to a lot of "Pumpkin Masters" and such designs (with a silhouette in a wide cut out) but the design is 100% mine, hand-drawn and carved using commercially available pumpkin saws. The rear-light projection of the moon and the bat was pretty much an afterthought, but that is what caused it to win.
