In my latest project, Iโ€™m making a Jack Oโ€™ Lantern art doll. This character probably has the largest head out of any art doll Iโ€™ve previously built in proportion to his body, but I found using a large wad of tin-foil to do the trick all the same. In making this Jack Oโ€™ Lantern head sculpt, I spent plenty of time looking at reference online, looking various interpretations of Jack Oโ€™ Lantern characters and photographs of real Jack Oโ€™ Lanterns people carve for Halloween.


Making a Halloween Jack O Lantern Art Doll Head Sculpt ๐ŸŽƒ



The design of a Jack Oโ€™ Lantern characterโ€™s pretty simple, itโ€™s just a round or oval shape with a stem and a central seam at the top and bottom of the form, though since I created a human-like figure, the neck overs much of the bottom of the pumpkin. I love art and objects with surface texture, so I really enjoyed adding the variations of the pumpkin rind on the art doll head sculpt and later the way the sepia ink wash was able to pick-up these little indentations.
