Natural appetite suppresant

Cripes, I really hate trolling through stock photos. I'm looking for a certain piece of candy to use as a model for the cover on Petit Morts and I searched "chocolate candy bite." I'm looking for something cracked open with the filling oozing out.

So I get this little darling instead.
how appealing

Seriously, I need a "STOP SHOWING ME NAKED LADIES" button on these sites. You can't search anything without it returning naked ladies to you.

Crabby.

All I want is a damn piece of chocolate with a drippy center showing, and I get this naked broad covered in poo.

And actually, many clipart sites have "exclude nudity" things you can toggle on. It's never occurred to me to do it because I don't mind artful nudity. But this feels so sleazy and objectifying it makes my skin crawl.

I guess I'll start making use of the button.

Eww! I'm not a fan of male or female persons covered in chocolate - it just never photographs well...

Not one of my faves either.

Also it makes me say "and I'm supposed to believe she actually eats chocolate? Unlikely!"

That just makes me feel sorry for that woman. To think she probably thought modelling was a cool and glamorous job. Yuck.

She's looking pretty calm about it. It'd be funny to see the outtakes where she's like, "get this shit offa me!"

Perhaps stop using the word 'candy'. Although, just using the word 'chocolate' would give you zillions of images, I know you have to be more specific. Just a suggestion.

"chocolate candy" was one of their phrases as opposed to...I don't recall what else. I'm a little drained at this point!

You can search for pics without people. Depending on the site, add + nobody or nobody preceded by a comma. On istock it's + nobody. Try this link:

Thanks! I had found that one too. I'd thought there'd be more.

Bleurgh! Looks more like she's had an accident with a tin of brown gloss paint than chocolate . . .

Hm...I'll bet she has. Real chocolate wouldn't stay quite that consistently melted, I don't think. Not that I care if it's real chocolate or not ;-)

Thanks! I had found that one too, on Google images, I think. One would imagine there were more "chocolate with middle oozing out" pics in the world than there evidently are!

I think I'll end up doing something different. My vector drawing skills aren't up to doing it in a way simple enough to look good with the other four covers.

If you like and have some time to wait I can have a go at it for you. As you know I do a bit of graphic art once in a while. If you're on a deadline that's fast approaching then I wouldn't recommend relying on me... But I wouldn't mind helping you out :)

That's so sweet of you! I managed the drawing myself. It had to be really stylized to fit in with the rest of the series, so I couldn't outsource it. Had to be from me and my clumsy vector drawing skills.

...Is a pretty accurate summary of the internet.

I mostly find it hilarious, but I find anything sex-related fascinating and amusing.
