Scarecrow by Syd Baker

An oldie from 2001, done in Bryce and Strata3Dcx, special for October! Also, that same year by strange coincidence my carved pumpkin came out like this:


fun, funny, scarecrow, scary, pumpkin, halloween, jack o lantern

    Oh my! It’s Gizmo looking so very ominous!!! Great work Syd!!

  • Hahaha! I won the prize with that one, and last year, at Elfwood (my first posting site) one kid asked me if that was real pumpkin blood. I said “yes, it is” ….

    Genius!!!!!!!!!! LOVE this!!!!!
    and the one in the description truly raises the bar for Halloween images………

  • Heh heh heh, the year before I carved that one without the small one and won a contest! Pumpkin was on the TV news, but not me.

    Ohhhh that is so cool!!! Very well done…the sky adds so much to the haunting feel of this, and all those faces are so great!! :)

  • Thank you Teri, looks like only one of his buddies has noticed the little guy’s demise.

  • Thanks Keith, I remember wondering if I could make a pumpkin in Strata, and some early Bryce booleans tricks.
