I'm doing a little research this evening. Still trying to come up with some good photos of someone who could be my hero, Dominic. I caught a movie this week called This Christmas that was a very fun, fast-moving family drama. And filled with yummy black men :)
And I saw a quick photo on the cover of one of the gossip rags recently about A Rod. He was shirtless. That got me thinking--he's from the Dominican Republic, I think. My fictional character, Dominic, is born in the midwest, but he's black/hispanic...which describes a fair percentage of the population of various Carribbean islands. Think I might use that to narrow my search a bit :)
Also, just for the fun of it, I found a useful blog called Fit Sports Men. I may not be the target demographic (not being a gay man), but I'm OK with that.
Here's a couple of the pics I saved for later. I don't think any of them are exactly my fictional hero, but I have definitely found inspiration.
(Hmm...I might have to watch my blog traffic after this post. I have a feeling that I might get a few extra hits....)
