[picture:1718523|size=small]100% real. It's sitting on our front stoop right now. The photo was taken in our darkened dining room. The pumpkin is lit by two automotive lights powered by lantern batteries. The graphic was based on a picture in a book called "Godzilla 2000: Millenium" by Shogakukan Press in Japan. My insomniac wife did all of the layout and carving. In all it took about 8 hrs.
Thanks to all who believed something like this could only be done in Photoshop. It's a true testament of her skills.
