I always wondered why the first sketch ever made was revised 3 times. Any guess?

This was the source I got it from, btw.

The one on the left is a sketch done by a newspaper. The one on the right is the official one.

It looks like the one you have is preliminary. Maybe even done by a witness. I am guessing they felt it was too cartoonish and needed more realism? So we get 2 done by another newspaper and then Napa probably decided to use that same artist for 3?

4 is probably the product of an “Identikit” that uses premade drawings and slotting them together. I’d like to know the official source of its release. It almost looks like a leak they wanted to hold back.

I’m wondering if the last sketch (the one with the raccoon eyes and upswept hair) was actually done by Morales at the time he did the costume sketch. Similar style, and both scans have that “grotty sketch paper” look.
