Graphic Evolution of GOSSIP

Day four of this Blogtastic Blog Tour goes to Jen Daiker at Unedited. Her post is totally cool. She is going to show you the Graphic Evolution of my MC , Sofia, from GOSSIP FROM THE GIRLS' ROOM!

While I have your attention, I htought it would be fun to show you the graphic evolution of two other characters from the book, the BFF, Nona, and the crush, Andrew.

NONA BEFORE- She was "too" cartoony


NONA AFTER-less cartoony, more graphic. And,a noticeably larger head!

These were other Andrew "possibilites" but they just didn't seem right.
And the first one here was too cartoony as well.

The original Andrew ended up being the final Andrew.

I make e a point of never showing his eyes.

So if you haven't already, check at Jen's blog and see what Sofia could have looked like!

Which do you prefer?

I think I like the more graphic Nona. But the cartoonie one's cute, too. I don't know! But I think they're awesome, and I love how it all turned out. Headed to Jen's--woo~ :D
