Some references for John Constantine

Constantine is based on the British musician Sting. He's about 6 feet or 6'1" tall, has blonde hair, smokes like a chimney and always wears a trenchcoat. He usually has a look of world-weariness that implies that he's seen more hard times and hell than any ten men have ever seen.

Here are a few photo references of Sting:

Younger days. This is how Steve Bissette drew him in Constantine's first appearances. Good view of his facial structure. I imagine Constantine as much more gaunt than this - he's a big drinker and smoker. Constantine often is unshaven and rather unattractive.
This might be the best reference for Constantine's look, IMHO. This is more the look of world-weariness that I see in Constantine. Sting's smile here is very Constantine. This is more the body I see the character having.
