Halloween 2017 Carved Pumpkin - Part 1 - Drawing

Each Halloween since 1992 my hubby has carved pumpkin(s). 1992 - 2005 hubby carved real pumpkins.
Then in 2005 he also carved a styrofoam pumpkin (the kind the craft stores sell). First 2005 pumpkin carved had words Trick or Treat on it. Since then he has carved Johnny Depp characters: Captain Jack Sparrow, the Mad Hatter, Sweeney Todd and Edward Scissorhands. Hubby started carving them by cutting out the areas completely and then changed to using a Dremmel tool to shave only some of the pumpkin surface. Most of the patterns were bought online. You can see several of the carved pumpkins photos on my blog right sidebar. This year using a tall white pumpkin he used a free image and turned it into a carving on his own. I'm going to make this into several blog posts with this part 1 showing the drawing on the pumpkin before carving is done. Come back later as I will show the carving in progress thru the completed carving.
