[I am still obsessing on paintings of food, but now another obsession has appeared - hot mermen. So naturally I got The Boy to pose for a bunch of reference photos, because he is pretty and readily available and loves having his picture taken. Later, this happened:]
Me: Y'know what's a shame about this merman thing? I don't get to draw your spectacular ass. It'll just be, like, a featureless curve at the top of your tail.
Boy: So just move it up. [Gestures at his chest and does a little shimmy.]
Me: But I'm painting you as a merman, not a mermaid.
Me: I am not giving you mermoobs.
