pre-prehistoric Jenny


Once upon a time (say...1998) Jenny existed only as words on paper and we had no idea what she looked like. These are some of the very first xj9's sketched as we tried to find her look and personality.



More to come...

Wow. You guys must have worked on this concept for a long time. I can see only the barest hints of the modern Jenny in these sketches. Cool!

But, uh, why's she flipping the bird in that last pic?

very interesting, I like the idea of the first design and the third one (with big cute eyes, like anime).

I never cease to be astonished. It raises questions like:
How did they decide upon Jenny's final design?
What inspired her designs?
How can one character have so many different expressions?
Why IS she flipping the bird in the that last pic?

Wow.. I never thought about just how much time, creativity and trial and error it must have taken to come up with the modern Jenny. And the same goes for all the other characters, I guess.
