We like to keep things light here at the HotMovies good-head quarters, and there’s no better lighthearted holiday than Halloween within the Adult Industry. Our marketing super squad came together for some office pumpkin carving this past week, and some very devious creations came to be.

We began by taking a short lesson from our master of crafts, James Cybert, in the finer techniques of hacking artwork into a big orange fruit. The first step is to make a stencil, and you can make one out of virtually any image using Photoshop. Take the same lesson we did from the head honcho of online pornutopia himself below.

Step 1
Find a picture that you want to carve on the pumpkin. Make sure it has strong shadows.

I’m excited for the upcoming Harry Potter movie and I wanted my pumpkin to be a little evil, so I chose Lord Voldemort.

A quick image search on Google turned up this great shot from “The Order of the Phoenix”

Step 2
Open the image in photoshop and resize to 8×10 or 5×7 or something that will fit on your pumpkin. Also crop it to what you want to carve.

Step 3
Turn it black and white and adjust the brightness and contrast.
I put my brightness on 80 and contrast all the way up to 100.

Step 4
Now invert the image. It should really be looking like a stencil now. You’ll be cutting out the black parts, so you will need to clean it up a bit.

I added an eye and a nose slit to give a little detail. you’ll need to play with your designs to figure out what kind of details you might want to add later.

Here is the finished product:

You can do this with anything really. it might take a little messing around to find something that works.

I’d love to see what you do. If you try this, please post links to your results.

More to come as we approach Halloween :p
