Update - 6 Jan 2020
Inspired by the above references and the overall aesthetic of the show and its period in history, I sketched a selection of heads to depict a new Peaky Blinders member. As I have arrived very late to the contest, having only discovered it today, I'm working fast - but I'm still trying to present to myself a variety of ideas before moving forward with a final design. I'm hoping to capture the character through visual scrapes and scuffs, whilst their clothing portrays someone who has had their share of the cash. I've narrowed it down to a young man who is no stranger to fights and confrontation.
