    You can do your own patterns.. Take a picture of something, open up a paint program, gray scale it, and jack the contrast way up. Then negative the pattern if needed and adjust from there.

    I was watching this show the other night with pumpkin carving on it. This one guy made a snowman out of pumpkins that had another pumpkin in its hands with the top of its head all ripped off with guts in its mouth, like the pumpkin snowman was eating the brains out of the one in its hand. It was awesome.

    How do you get all the intricacies in the design ? I couldn't EVER get that right.

    Hell, I have problems with teeth. Most of mine are death-oriented because they look like geriatrics.

    well it looks like i might be the only one that can see it or tell what it is so i may sract that one lol, but you perty much can make any picture a pumpkin pattern like some are easy like the first one i posted and i just free hand them but the hard one like the last one i just get a picture De-saturate the image by going to Image > Adjustments > De-saturate

    Adjustments > Brightness / contrast 100% and brightness -60%

    foreground color. Make all the black areas so that they are easy to cut and are solid. Make sure that there are no floating black shapes because those would be impossible to cut.
