The Journey 3D Character Art Challenge prompted me to revisit the evolution of my protagonist, Avonlea. Since I don't know how long the contest submission thread will remain accessible, I am re-posting most of it here. The notes will be added to the Child of Paradox* page of my portfolio. The evolution of Avonlea started about 27 years ago, with character sketch for an old fashioned RPG. The campaign I played her in ended when I was 21, but Avonlea became the focus for my writing, and a frequent subject of my art.
