I finished it!
After a few years of working on this book every now and then, my dummy for Jessica's Sunbeam Window is complete. I've included the top two images in addition to the last illo to give you an idea of how Jessica has transformed from her beginnings (there's actually another, more cartoony version that I don't feel like finding and scanning). Since beginning the dummy, my style has solidified and I've made decisions regarding her age. All that remains for me to complete are three illo's to paint, and then I'll send her out into the world and hope someone will see this vision the way that I do and buy it. Regardless of the outcome, however, I feel proud that I've achieved this goal. Only three years ago, I couldn't have put this together. I remember the frustration I felt when I tried to create a dummy, or even to illustrate something I wasn't looking at. But I've worked hard, found some great books that pointed me in the right direction, and I did it!
