It s already been one year since Porcus first joined Artkey Raffles! Our little space piggy has hit a growth spurt in terms of popularity from when first launched!

Why a Porcus update?

Every once in a while, the artists of Artkey will do a review of the active sculpts to see what can be improved and or to make creative changes when inspiration strikes. With Porcus, we love the sculpt, but also feel there is an opportunity to take it further - evolve or “mature” it, even in a small way.


So… what changed?

When it first came out, Porcus seemed to us a piglet: a teeny-tiny cutie piggy. Now that one year has passed, it is only natural that our piggy has grown up!

No Longer a Piglet!

Porcus now sports a thicker coat of fur featured in very fine details! Originally, the fur texture was the same as in our other artisan keycap sculpts (namely Sirius and Felix). Lately, we have been looking at wild hog fur as reference and decided on this texture for a more realistic and wilder look!


The ears are now slightly perked up, which, in our opinion, gives Porcus a more confident look than with the previous droopy look. The ears are also folded inwards, which we believe is a nice subtle update! Porcus s tusks have grown larger as well! Looks like someone is in the teenage rebellious phase!

Designer Headphones

Porcus still wears a pair of headphones with a skull and a heart logo on each side of the cups. Both have been made more pronounced. After all, Porcus is at the age where appearance matters! Gotta stay stylish!

Upgraded Robotic Arm

Just a reminder that Porcus is no longer a little piggy. The arm is now just a tad bit bigger than previously, 10x cooler! But let s hope Porcus didn t hold a fundraising event for this.

Final thoughts

We believe there is always room for artistic evolution, improvement and potential to be discovered in any sculpts, including the ones we love. In the universe of artisan keycaps, the possibilities are endless. We hope you enjoy the Porcus evolved!
