ping pong pachyderm by Loopydave ping pong pachyderm by Loopydave
For some reason I thought it would be funny having an elephant playing table tennis.

ping pong pachyderm by ~Loopydave is a very skillfully rendered image, and pretty funny at that. Since little penguins are known to play ping pong all day long, bringing an elephant in on that really makes it more interesting! Just look how hard it's concentrating...

For some reason, the line from Star Wars, "Let the Wookie" wins seems relevant to this image.
Except, it is "Let the Ellie win". The trunk (or a foot) could do an awful lot of damage to the
penguin if he beats the elephant. :O

Sounds like good advice - lets just hope the penguin takes it.... or the elephant isn't a bad loser!

Oh, I don't know... the elephant looks like he is awfully competitive.
Just check out the look of concentration on his face. The tongue sticking
out the corner of his mouth is a mark of serious concentration right there!

LOL this is great!! It's not too far off from reality, either. there are some giants and some smurfs who play competitive ping pong. I also love how you chose a penguin for the opponent, but that's just me hehe. love love love how you put so much personality into your characters!!

Glad you like the piece, so dont take this the wrong way.... I have a pretty strict policy of not sending hi rez versions of my art to anyone but actual clients. I have had too many experiences of people both stealing my art and claiming it as their own and/or selling it without my permission. Cheers!

Elephants are always funny playing table tennis. Its just one of the basic rules of nature. Dont poke large angry bears, never offer to count a killer whales teeth and elephants look funny playing table tennis!
