OK, so she’s not exactly as I imagined, but to be honest, better. Intelligent, resourceful, resolute.
Here’s the reply I sent to the designer:
That’s excellent. Thanks. Well done. Only criticisms
1. At this point in the story she’s been scrabbling under fences and charging through a jungle, so needs to look a little less as if she’s just come from a styling session. Hair unkempt, a bit of mud. Same for the clothing.
2. She’s had a rough & stressful life – basically she’s been a street urchin, living from hand to mouth – so there needs to be a (worry) line or two to reflect this. Something that shows her past.
I’m really looking forward to seeing the end result.
