Top Hog by Jackaloftrades Top Hog by Jackaloftrades
Here's my submission for the mentos contest, I wanted to give the message of making the impossible possible. Used a double message here, the term "when pigs fly" and the sheer fact that he's using a bunch of pop bottles and mentos to enable him to do so.

As for making the world a better place, gotta acknowledge that the best ideas are often the craziest.

Wow I had to rush this piece, didn't know if I would get it done on time.

Edit: Funny enough I thought the contest ended 11 1/2 hours ago, major brain fart. I edited the image to fit the borders on the template, unfortunately that means I had to crop a tiny tiny bit more. I don't want to edit the template, I believe that is against the rules. This worked out also because I eliminated the tangent with the mentos hand going into the hogs arm.

To paraphrase "Superman" (1978) tag line: 'You'll believe than pig can fly'. :)

Reminds me "Mythbusters" BTW. :P

Clever, witty, well rendered....and hilarious. I love the Guinea pig's expression in the 2nd frame. "Pigs....in...Spaaaaaaccee...." :rofl:
If this doesn't get a DD for you I'll eat my hat. Uh, Stinz's hat. Mine don't taste too good. :XD:

lol Thanks a bunch, you can tell I had a lot of fun with this project.

Maybe not a DD, I don't think contest entries go into that category. So save your hat for wearing, trust me when I say they don't digest well =P.
