stretch



This week's Illustration Friday prompt is "Stretch", so I drew this tall, skinny person.  oops.

I'm not all that familiar with Sumo wrestling, but from what I do know, it's an intriguing ancient martial art in Japan.  With that, it's highly ritualized and includes:

"... both step back into the ring, squat facing each other, clap their hands, then spread them wide (traditionally to show they have no weapons). Returning to their corners they each pick up a handful of salt which they toss onto the ring to purify it."

Would you get mad at this guy for spilling some salt on your floor?  I wouldn't.

  2. I was wondering about the salt, too. More so, if it would hurt if they found themselves rubbing on it. With all that weight, probably not.

    Another great face you've drawn... his "outfit" is nice, too. :)

    1. Right, maybe their padding makes the salt less noticeable?? I like his outfit too. Think they come in our size?

  3. I'd most likely hand him the salt shaker :) Nice Drawing.

    1. I think he'd be another interesting Thanksgiving guest, but I don't think my kitchen's big enough.

  4. I think I'd stay well back and leave the salt where it is. Sumo wrestling always looks a bit more Samoan than Japanese to me, but hey, what do I know?

  5. I love him, Abby! Do you think he can get up without help?

  6. I wouldn't argue with him if he wanted to spill salt on my floor. Or sugar. Or a bag of potato chips. He looks intimidating!

  7. I don't know if I would contest a 300 lb guy in a diaper throwing salt on my floor.
