cute, but i think the paddle handles need a bit of texture or grips, otherwise they'll get lost on the background

The panther is super rad. How are you going to do placement?

I think this is going to be a left breast (steady) patch or a larger Tee print. I was thinking of adding 'Ping Pong Panthers' underneath.

I think it would be awesome as a patch! As a larger tee design the wording would definitely add to it. On another note...How many more ninja heads are you going to add to your avatar?

I'm aiming for something like this:

I think it's strong enough on its own, no need for the text. :-)

that's sweet.

i'd wear the panther, all-over print on pajama pants, too. or boxer shorts

I hate to be the voice of descent, but this not doing much for me. Are the Ping Pong Panthers related to some Pop Culture phenomena I am unaware of or are Ping Pong Panthers awesome for the sake of being awesome? Knowing this might help my opinion.

I really dig it. Maybe I'm just dumb, but I keep reading it as "Ping Panthers Pong"... which I guess is also acceptable but probably not what you are going for.

Musarter. This is for the select challenge which is loosely themed around college: sports, science, maths etc. So I invented a college ping pong team because its a bit of a nerdy sport but with a ferocious mascot and I just liked the alliterative name. I'll try harder in future :)

Rachel. I get what your saying, perhaps I'll move the 'Panthers' and middle scroll lower down and it might read better. I'm pretty sure I've seen scrolling where you read the back words first. idk. Not sure how else to get around it.

Littlem. Of course this is about you, thats not a panther, its obviously a cougar.

ohnoyoudi'in't...

are you saying i'm after youngins?

littlem

i think you crossed a line, with dire consequences...

I'm just saying that you're one of Threadless' more venerable members, thats all. Can you read this with your giant magnifying glass?

The college ping-pong thing makes more sense. I knew it was for the Select but I did not make the sports connection.

Please don't try harder on my behalf. I am just one nay sayer in a sea of yays. Keep on keeping on.

This is looking freaking cool so far. Agree with Rachel about the reading issue, but dunno how to fix it, since it looks fine right now. I'd suggest some sort of frame for the panthers head or maybe just something simple that goes on the background that's made only with outlines. Really cool stuff.

Thanks doodz. I've updated it slightly by dropping the centre part of the scroll to try and make ping-pong read better. I don't think its too noticeable though. I'm going to leave it in this orientation.

It does help with the readability. :-)

You're just saying that, but I like it.

Love the dissected frog in there. Could definitely see that getting chosen!

littlem

did you already sub that science one? if not, the only thing i'd suggest is making that dropper's bottom half filled with red. looks awesome

Geez Alex, speak your mind. :)

Littlem. I'll try out that non- butts and ballz related idea, thanks.

Thanks everyone!

Thanks guys, they're all subbed up and should be approved within the next six weeks. Whats with the mega mass of challenges at the moment?

Science submissions looks sweet! I agree with Farnell, would love it on a tie.

That science print..oh the science-ie goodness!

Science is cool!

I still read the Panther one as Ping Panthers Pong. I think the banner should be more U- or Horse-shoe shaped to drop the Panthers down further and connect ping with pong.
