Okay this was originally just a random idea I had when pitching the humourous entry, but it's grown on me a whole lot....

The Gangster Walrus
The basic idea is a walrus in a Fedora and pinstripe suit with a tommy gun.....y'know that old picture of the monkey in the suit with the gun? think that....but with a bad ass walrus....

Think this but more....well.....walrus-y....and with a hat...

More details soon.....

obviously my walrus is going to be a little modified to be a bit more human like...but it'll still be a walrus....

Sweet man. Love that Thompson.

If you have children of men, I recommend giving it a browse. Clive Owen isn't a gangster, but he`s dressed like that reference you posted, only there`s a lot more "grunge" to his look.
