Sketch: Zoot suit guy

Just one more character in front of a very lazy white background before hitting the bed.

Much like the previous entry, this one is based on actual foto reference. This time I mashed together two photos - one for the face and torso and one for the pose. As the pose was only a half shot, the lower part is sort of improvised.
Method: Nothing fancy this time, linework in ink as usual, then colored digitally. Originally, the whole guy was blue-grey (much like in the first photo), but after a bit of dabbling with hue overlays, I kind of started to like the purple-red transition. Might look a bit cheap, though.
