Chaals, 10 jpgs as offered, my continuing concerns now include,

will it be possible for the svg image to scale to the client area of the
user window? img {width:10%;}
(note this is useful as it helps to ensure that users all see a similar
result independent of resolution. try resizing the window)

were you intending to provide just one large svg file? this makes it very
difficult for others to use unless they already have svg skills.
I prefer small seperate objects? is css, html, jpg, script, rather than one
monolithic file. That way anyone has more potential to work with parts of
the file...

Have you seen/used anything like the 'fill' method to capture svg data?
to create the transparent background was 1 or 2 clicks in the main, using
'fill',
fine detail such as hair and jewellery will take a lot of effort by the
'drawing a line' method, and bezier etc aren't much help unless they emulate
the fill method.

on degredation to jpg, the background colour may not match users chosen
background (fake jpg transparency) obvious i know but worth repeating.

thanks
