Character images

Part of today (a much larger part than I originally planned) was spent hunting down possible images of the central characters in my current work in progress, SEX, LIES AND BONDAGE TAPE. This will be for the web page I’ll be putting together soon for the novella. I usually hunt down this sort of graphic much later on (I haven’t even put the DOUBLE DARE pix on-line yet,) but I felt like doing it this way around, and I thought I’d share what I went for here.

My heroines are always independent, mostly curvy women with long hair, but I decided that this one was going to be different in appearance. The relationship between the hero and the heroine is based on extreme physicality, from the outset. So, I decided early on that Kelly would be a super-fit gym instructor and Tommy a super-fit roadie/security guy -- just to up the stakes, don’t you know. ;-)

Who was I going to have as my Kelly lookalikey? Didn't take long for me to decide that Milla (droooooool) Jovovich was the perfect model for my fit, slightly crazy gym instructor on a mission. So I spent a lot today gazing at photos of the delectable Ms Jovovich, and eventually (what a chore!) I found just the picture.

And for Tommy? I had to have another long, wearying hunt through pin ups, this time of..
Mr Sean Bean.

The fact I found pix of them both in bed is a mere coincidence. Honest, your honour...

You know what they say, "It's a tough job, but someone's got to do it." \;+)

Lucky you, to find what you were looking for. When I find the ideal model, it's someone I just happened upon. I've never found one by actually looking.

Sure. We believe you. *snicker*

Wow, what a great pair of character templates! I've always liked Milla... and bravo on selecting a 'fit' Yorkshire bloke as your super-fit roadie! :)

Zaza ~ it usually happens that way for me too, but this time I thought I'd try to pin them down to models early on just to see how it works out. It certainly helps...and it's a great excuse to oggle all in the name of 'work.' ;-)

Raine ~ >:-}

Wendy ~ Thanks!! Not bad, eh? ;-)
