So, my short story. I wanted a picture of of what my main character looks. If I could draw, I would draw it myself. Sadly, I am drawing impaired. I decided to go looking for a photo that fits my mental picture. That is, a man, dark, strong but not a bodybuilder. Someone who is affectionate and clever and quick. I went to deviantart and searched for soldier. Nothing. Warrior turned up a bunch of sword toting people. That was interesting, but not what I was looking for. Pirate turned nothing that fit my mental image. Finally, I did a search for male. Really, what could be simpler? That was why I didn’t try it first – I thought it would too simple. Silly me. I turned up lots and lots very interesting photos – many of them involving nude men. I had to sign in to just to see most of the pics (they showed too much fine male flesh for just anyone to see). I found this one picture, not nude, of a guy that fits fairly well with my mental image. Except for the lips – they are too pink. I’d pictured paler, thinner lips. It is a male stock image someone posted.
