Halo Jack-O-Lantern 2014I really wanted to make a Halo related jack-o-lantern for Halloween. I searched for some designs, and found some really cool ones. However, I wanted to do something a little more involved than a standard one. I'm not that experienced though (never done the scraping thing) so I went with a simple one.
It's called Flaming Ninja. It's an old multiplayer emblem (as well as the name of a H2 Vista achievement). I thought it was weird that the flames were scraped and not cut out, so I switched it to make it so. I wish I had more pics of the process, but failed to take any. Here's what it looked like when it was finished.
Not too shabby for my first time. That pumpkin was thick as fuck too, so the scraping took a while. It was a little rough but I was satisfied with it. Here's what it looked like when lit up.
All in all, I'd call it a success. Really enjoyed making it. I could've used some more specialized tools though. Maybe I'll find some and practice for next year, and make an even better one.

19 year old BlackPenguin walks into a cyber café to maybe play some Halo CE on PC. He checks to see if a new episode of Red vs Blue is out on redvsblue.com, and is greeted by a new sign-up page and a new community site.
The rest is history.
Years of hanging on every upload. Years of “+1 cool”. Years of more and more awesome community members. Years of community organizing. Years of Guardianship and RTX. Years of seeing my second humble home grow into a sprawling civilization. Years of more to come.
Upon reflection, it’s staggering how much of an impact Rooster Teeth has actually had on my life. Not for just a moment, but for ten whole years. There are no words.
PAX SouthSssoooooo, who is going? I'm really looking forward to it. Who wants to hang out, get plastered, and go eat in the evenings? This is the first con I've been to that I'm not volunteering at, so it's going to be a carefree weekend of many funs.
Me and my roomies (@agd2i & @Radius55) are also looking for a fourth person to share our hotel room. --Marriott Plaza (under 5 minutes from the con by foot) --Check in 1/22, check out 1/26 --$250 total per person --Let us know if you're interested

Thinking about trying this Saturday sometime. Preferably after 6pm, but I'm open to other times. Anyone want to help?
