I appreciated very much Chinapete's thread, so i decided to give a try too. Unfortunately my imagination went a little outside the classical statuary poses domain.... LOL:D
Speedy drawing with pencil and chalk.

Caesar... LOL.... we have come to expect flawless athleticism from our Olympians.... but they are human as you so cleverly illustrated here...a very nice work..it really shows your grasp of the figure and your ability to create the unusual and humorous poses is very cool!...

Dear Gary, it's easy to find anathomical studies and drawings in almost all poses on artbooks, but almost impossible to find any reference for more unconventional and embarassing ones such as the one of a crashed diver, so I had to carry out this study by mere imagination. LOL :D Thank You!

I've got more in my mind, dear Pete, but don't know if it would be too much irreverent to draw a counter-Olympics. it looks like some funny event are occurring to the games and the management isn't apparently fully flawless as in China. Thank You!

Maybe, dear Geoff, since our couple of synchronous she-divers threw away a medal in a laste disastrous dive. So we got one medal less and Canada one more than expcted. Unfortunately we failed to get other likely enough medals in other two cases in the swimming pool, as well as in feminine judo and masculine sabre. Nonetheless our medal list is far better than either UK or Canada this far and second to France only in Europe (actually more medals than France too, but a golden one less) .;) Not too bad after all... Thank You!

Thank You, dear Ruby-Freesia, but once is more than enough ...:DLOL

I'm glad you appreciated it, dear Jibes ... even if in rather extreme conditions and pose. :DLOL Thank You!

Right, dear Steve, a really good dive. Actually he's got all 10s because the execution was perfect and he didn't squirt not even a water droplet! ;) LOL Thank You!

This is soooooooo funny Cesare, looks like the water rippled into his muscles. You are so good at these:)

Glad You started Your day smiling, dear Katie!
I'm sorry I had to waste such a well fit hunk for my vignette.:eek: Anyway no animal was harmed in this scene, not even an ant.
As for the ripples, I figured out that getting crushed on the floor may have shortened him a little bit, certainly less than a sharpei dog skin though ... :DLOL

Thank You, dear Sandra! It looks like I found my niche ...:D LOL

Goodmorning Pat and hubby! Time to smile or chuckle again! Thank You!

Here the throw was regularly made within the circular spot, but the hammer release technique was far from perfect, so the measure eventually was just 13 cm plus a 4 cm bump. :o

Dear Cesare you really have such a great sense of humour, love the bump on his head:)

Thank You, dear Katie! Maybe these accidents would never occur today (as a matter of fact the sportsman attire and the grey tones of the drawing would suggest a vintage picture of a far past time Olimpics Game).

Thank you, dear Amanda!
Now I wonder, shall I go on along this crazy path or shall I celebrate Olympics with more classical, statuary and almost rethoric poses?

... go with the flow ... that's the craziest path :):) ...

Thank You, but You still have to see Mary Ann's "Food with an Attitude" thread in the Projects forum ... LOL;)

Caesar, love this path, I think we all need a laugh and you really do that for us, so keep them coming, thankyou again for the great laughter

Thank you, dear ChP and Pat!
Here's an hyper-speedy drawing then. Actually the joke and the pun was slightly more "intricate" and "spicy", but I tried to keep it in the main gallery and not to have a subsidiary in the After 9 o'Clock section .... therefore I count on Your perspicacity in case. ;)LOL

Is that what they mean by falling for some one???? Another great and amusing sketch Cesare:)

... more or less, dear Katie ...LOL;) a brilliant consideration indeed. Thank You!
