The first phase of my pumpkin creation resided around the creation of easily synchronous sketched curves to dictate the size of the pumpkin. Synchronous made this step easy using the steering wheel and patterning to replicate and modify the sketches.
Next I used Blue Surfing to bring the edges together and inserted sketches along the way - eventually resulting in a solid body shown in the image below. Watch the video below this creation in real time.
Once I had a solid body, which made up the Jack-O-Lantern body, the following parts were very easy to create. Using a part and doing a Multi Body design made it easy to create the top for the lantern.
