    Draft # 3 & # 2

    Thank you, Wibbiewabbit. I really like the lettering,layout and overall effect; the doorway is important so if you reestablish that. Please add the author's name. The little girl looks too big - its roughly 40-50 feet from the doorway to where she should be in the cul-de-sac. We don't need to have her looking back after all. The view is facing east. She should be headed south,south-east, towards the right of the frame.

    Draft # 1 & # 4

    I agree, Garbanzo. Lets forget about actually showing the little girl's face. Thanks for putting the door frame back in. The picture was taken early in the morning - facing east (re shadow placement) The little girl should be headed somewhat south (to the right)and in the middle/right side of the cul-de-sac. The letters appear a little blockish - try a smoother font?

    Draft # 1

    Nice initial effort!

    1. Girl skipping away needs to be smaller. The distance from that point in the cul-de-sac to the porch is roughly 40-50 feet.
    2. Girl should have blond hair and be thinner; and looking back furtively.
    3. Cleaver is what is depicted. Should be a butcher knife.
    4. Need author's name at bottom.
    5. Would like to see door frame from original pix.
