Sketchbook Update: Old Mafia Hit Man


I decided to join in on the Character Design Challenge over on Facebook. This month’s theme is “Gangster”. I thought it would be fun to imagine an old hit man who still wears out of fashion turn-of-the-century clothes. The costume was inspired by this photo:

One Last Sketch of 2010

Mafia guy sketch

A quick study done on a Cintiq, based on a live model I photographed during a drawing session at the 2010 CTN Expo. Looking at it again its pretty obvious I made the hands too big and the legs too short, but oh well. What’s the point of keeping a sketchbook if you never make mistakes?

Happy New Year one and all!
