Imhotep/Joker Pumpkin

I was watching the original 1932 version of The Mummy last night, and afterward I drew the above picture. It's not an exact likeness of the mummy in his more human form in the movie. I drew it from memory and didn't really try to make it look exactly like Boris Karloff in his role. I always imagined he'd appear with the bandages and the really rough looking face and hands throughout the movie, but he only appears like that in the beginning and throughout all but his last appearance he's in a more human form. He goes by a name other than Imhotep or the mummy in the movie, and I think it's spelled Ardeth Bay. It's a cool movie. Below are some pictures of a pumpkin I just finished painting tonight.

I'm pretty sure this is the first pumpkin I've painted almost all over the whole thing. The only part that's not painted is the area where my signature is. This pumpkin, as I'm sure you can tell, is painted to look like The Joker. I drew the face on in pencil, then went over the lines with a black Sharpie. Later I decided to paint almost the whole pumpkin, so I drew ears and more hair on with the Sharpie. Then I painted it over two days. I think it turned out great.
