Just for fun - take a look at Deborah Tucci (or Mrs. William Tucci, if you like), posing for the first cover (from boom boom- link broke)
|Mandy Amano is a friend of Billy's and modeled not only for that cover, but also for the cover of Ju-Nen #4:|| Yah. The most obvious differences are the
part in her lips & the sword. The sword has several differences... the
shape of the Tsuba(hand guard), the Kashira(butt cap) on one & the
kabuto-gane (same but longer) on the other, the Tsuka-Ito (handle braid)
is 11 on one handle & 14 on the other, one has a minor Fuchi (collar)
built into the tsuba while the other has a proper Fuchi @ the base of the
Tsuka. It almost looks like a Katana was used in one & a Tachi was
used in the other, but that could be my imagination. If you examine real
close, you'll notice several of the hairs hanging in front are different
as well. Her left eyebrow is more pronounced in the graphite & the
shape @ the outside edge (I know there is a term in modeling for it) of
the right brow differs slightly.
