The Gang and The Initiate | Design Process

Fig 1 | The Body Shape
The body shape is vital to my idea behind the gang memeber.  I looked at current design of gangster alongside the triangle shapes of classic evil characters. Moreover I looked for a skinny body shapes to help me portray The Initiate as a malnourished hard up gangster from the bottom of  Los Feliz.

For the fashion style it was easy to go for the mordern day classic gangster look. However when approaching photos of the Crips during 1969 it appeared that it could mixed in with the classic Zoot suit of the 1920's plus the Fadora.
