It was actually a lot harder than I thought it would be to do anything other than the basic geometric face. I tried to just cut out the top using my kitchen knives and ended up making a horrible mess. So, I hopped in the car and went to the store. There was a pumpkin carving kit that was pretty cheap and I picked it up. (Here is the actual kit, it has great pumpkin patterns Pumpkin Carving Kits) It had some pretty useful carving tools like tiny serrated knives and scrapers. I ended up using one of the patterns that came in the kit, but it made me want to try my own pattern on a new pumpkin. Anyway this was how it turned out.
