This character has had three prior versions. The girl was from a sketch I made in 1999. A pencil sketch in one of my spiral sketchbooks from when I attended college. The second version was an oil painting with her in a yellow dress standing on a flower petal. The third version is a watercolor painting of her in the same yellow dress but with a star-filled cosmic background.
And now, in this fourth version, she is now Jalena, an Ethereal Guard in my Realm Ethereal series. I don’t know what it is about this character, but she just keeps coming back!
