About My Design

For some reason, as a child I always enjoyed the story "The Three Little Pigs", despite it not being that adventurous or crazy. I also really like totem poles, so I thought I'd combine the two...

It would be nifty if you could actually stack them yourself.

Congrats on the win :) Was a long and suspensful few weeks.

This is a very cute and funny design, and I especially love the look of the wolf! An interesting addition would be if the four characters could be separated and displayed individually as well! It'd be an awesome figure decoration, but I also want that wolf as a large plush toy!

Such a cute idea~

If I could vote a bajillion times, I so would. This is such a neat idea. The expressions really bring out the design, and I can totally see this as a neat little figure. Reaaally crossing my fingers that it'll win. I'd so buy it.

There are not enough tokem pole figures out there and I LOVE this one. I mean...LOVE IT! LOVE IT! LOVE IT! When can I buy?!
Okkle commented on 18th Jul 2010 (Report Spam)
Love it! Absolutely love it! The pigs would have to be stackable to really make it but I'm sure that could be done.
katiejuby commented on 9th Jul 2010 (Report Spam)
So cute~ I would love to have this as a part of my wardrobe and/or as a figurine in my room. ouo
Oddling commented on 8th Jul 2010 (Report Spam)
This one really should win. That'd be one awesome figure. Well done.
Mickey commented on 5th Jul 2010 (Report Spam)
I would definately want this as a toy or t-shirt or print or whatever it will be made into. its a cool concept on a old classic.

So cool! What a wonderful spin on a classic fairy tale :)
JarrodArthur commented on 4th Jul 2010 (Report Spam)

I - Love - This !  Yes would be great if you could make them stackable in any way you like. Great design!!

shaolinwolf commented on 3rd Jul 2010 (Report Spam)
I xan see this as being an actual item. What would make it really neat would be, like Dreamkeeper's said, to have them stack-able. I think magnetic bottom would give them more purpose than stacking on top of each other too.(like using them on the fridge) Cute idea~
Dreamkeepers commented on 2nd Jul 2010 (Report Spam)

I came back to your artwork with a thought: have you thought of making the pigs and wolf stackable/removable?  The pigs are nice, I just like the wolf quite a bit.

Mego commented on 2nd Jul 2010 (Report Spam)
very cute/unique idea
Dreamkeepers commented on 2nd Jul 2010 (Report Spam)
The wolf's eyes caught my attention first. He's my favorite part, and clearly having a good time keeping those pigs right where he wants them.

katanimate commented on 30th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)

I think this is my favorite of the Childhood Stories challenge! Very well designed! Both the shapes and the colors used are pleasing to the eye. And the illustration is so clean that this would work well for a figure or a t-shirt, easy.

Corvid337 commented on 29th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)

wow, very unique! My only issue is that the wolf looks very raccoon like, especially with the stripes, but I understand it's just the stylization. Very nice though! I also like the pink background and think it works well with the illustration.

bluebarker commented on 29th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)
Great design and concept, but the background color should be different, too many warm colors, many a black, grey or white would be better
Neolucky commented on 29th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)
really adorable and imaginative!
Oshimagun commented on 29th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)
That's a really wicked design. Not sure how the whole totem pole fits into it but the fact that the pigs are using their respective materials to make wings and I guess potential fly away is really clever. The design for the wolf itself too is pretty appealing. The crazy eyes and the Touma-style mouth are one thing but I think it's big snout really makes it a unique design. It'd be cool if you could take the 4 animals apart and stack them if you want but maybe that's asking way too much. once again, awesome.
Mythrime commented on 29th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)
This is a really brilliant design on the tradition characters. :'D Well done!
spookyspittle commented on 29th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)
Love it!
Zilo commented on 29th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)

Unique, but the most well fit to the theme I think. The pigs are adorable, but I agree...the wolf is what ties it together - you could tell he was the 'big bad guy' even if you hadn't heard the story before - all of the characters' roles on the totem are fairly clear, and they each have a bit of personality, which adds interest! Because of the top fella's open wings, I'm tempted to worry about balance in a final production, but that may not even be an issue. It would be cool if they came in separate blocks so they could be stacked in a different order, etc.

Just a great innovative design! Love the style and execution!
Seel commented on 28th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)
this is a great idea and design... love totems! would be a nice addition to my shelf ;D
Elfenn commented on 28th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)

I agree about the pink backgroud, I think it doesn't deserve well your design but that's just a detail ; my favourite part is also this completely mad wolf (personal taste : I love wolves and this one is really unique). As soon as I've seen your totem, I've reminded the Grimm's tale "The Bremen Town Musicians", I think it would have make a good totem too.  Your design is a kind of crazy cross-over between two classical tales :-D Very good work !

Floof commented on 27th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)
I love it-such a creative design! I would totally buy it as a toy.
palerider commented on 27th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)

I think the background is too pink, it takes away from the overall design.  Personally, I would have prefer to delete the pigs and just keep the wolf!  I'm not crazy about the "piggie totem pole".

Vaporotem commented on 27th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)

I want this.

I was totally thinking about doing something like this for the three billy goats gruff! You did a great job with this, the design is wonderful. I love how each pig has their own unique shape/color and the wonderful styleee. I HOPE YOU WIN because I want this.

This is really Good! My favorite so fa.
aardvark-scouts commented on 26th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)

This is very cute! The syle goes very well with the theme and keeps it from feeling like "too much". The wolf is my favorite part. I love the hypnotic eyes! As others have said, this would be soooooo awesome if the characters were stackable. Despite the potential price increase, I think it would really push the toy to the next level.

This is brilliant. I'm usually super reserved when it comes to purchasing ANYTHING.... but this might be an exception!
Syphin commented on 25th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)
Love it!! Its so cute :]
Pigeonbox commented on 25th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)

Thanks everyone! :)

@shumi & evil-santa: I did consider making them stackable but as was mentioned, it would probably raise the cost of the figure dramatically. :( It would be fun if it were possible though!

evil-santa commented on 25th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)

This is great. Lovely style and characterisation along with a nice colour choice. I'm a big fan of totem designs and was pleasantly surprised to see this in the gallery for the Childhood Story competition. As others have mentioned, being able to stack them or have them separately could be a great strength to this design. You could potentially have the wolf looking upward as well, waiting for one of the piggies to fall down as an additional element.

Great stuff :)

sofa king adorable waaaah
THE CAS commented on 25th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)
HAHAHAHa, very good, i like how the wolf looks very evil, like hes jus waiting for the one on top to fall so he can eat it, nice turnarounds.

Such a cute design and idea!

Shottsy commented on 25th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)

I think this is a very creative idea, and it is well thought out and designed very well! I love how you also thought it out in forms of the toy itself, and how it would be painted rather than just a cute illustration.

what can i say i love totem poles and the three little pigs too
Polysoup commented on 25th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)

Love it. This is the kind of thing I was hoping for from the contest theme :)

Shumi commented on 25th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)
Im very impressed. Its such a creative idea! If it didnt add to the cost to much it would be really cool if you could stack the individual characters. SO they could be small stand alone toys, or displayed as the totem pole. What do you think?
Kammylee commented on 25th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)

Absolutely Adorable!  As long as it's not a super expensive toy, I'd buy it in a second!  What a great idea!

jakdacrowe commented on 25th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)
Oh mai gawds. Yes. I'd so buy this. If I had money.
