Shorty Shotgun

Here's a 1930s-vintage mobster type. I call him Shorty Shotgun, because his flat base makes him look a little shorter than most of my other 28mm figures. I tried a different colour scheme for this guy, giving him a burgundy hat, tie, and shoes and a grey suit. 

Close-up photography reveals that I missed painting a tiny bit of Shorty's sleeve and hat. I may rethink the base's colours. I was going for "sidewalk," but missed. You can also see that I had too much ink wash on my brush. Poor Shorty, going out without washing his face. 

It took a steady hand to add that shock of red hair, which is probably less than a millimetre thick.
