Jessica Rabbit Preproduction Artwork

Feast your eyes on what could have been. This is a picture of Marvin Acme and an early version of what Jessica Rabbit was supposed to look like. This depiction of Jessica was SO close to being the final version, that you can still see it in the movie. In the Who Framed Roger Rabbit film, when Eddie is looking at the newspaper after talking to Baby Herman, you can see this image if you pause it at the right moment. When the animation had to begin creation, her look was changed at the last second to the Jessica Rabbit we know now. Her face is very different, and almost looks close to a young Kathleen Turner (who supplied her speaking voice). The top of her dress was different and her gloves are much shorter.
