Blender Tutorial: Creating a Jack-o-Lantern Part 1

Well, a very long awaited tutorial has once again come from Shembol Studio, and we're excited to present this tutorial, and being that it is October, something in the theme of, oh, let's say, Halloween would be appropriate.
So this tutorial is the first of a 4-part series showing how to create an animated, talking Jack-o-Lantern from start to finish.  In this episode, we will be creating a pumpkin which we will later be using to "carve" into a jack-o-lantern.  Feel free to comment on this tutorial and all others that follow, and enjoy!
