P.I. Head studies

Here's what we were going for, a hardboiled, slightly weather beaten, private detective, drawing heavily on the tradition of Hammett and I was definitely not going to draw Bogie. I wanted him to be a little older, and showing it, while not being Gran Torino era Eastwood in regards to wrinkles, with at the very least a receding hairline. When I tried him bald unfortunately this guy looks way too much like Dashiell BadHorse, the main character from the series Scalped, which is funny as I was drawing heavily on reference images of my favorite boxer who is very Russian. I think this is going to work out.
