Piece of skin

I just watched Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation the other day (Netflix I curse you!) and...I wonder if this illustration was subconsciously influenced by that.  I hope not, because it was literally, literally, one of the worst films I have ever seen in my life.  Starring Renee Zellweger and Matthew McConaughey strangely enough, but it was still so terrible.  However, it could be put in the 'it's so bad it's good' category, along the lines of Honey starring Jessica Alba, and Glitter starring Mariah Carey.  While wikipedia-ing Mariah Carey for the name of the film Glitter, there was a note that, "She made her film debut as an opera singer in the romantic comedy The Bachelor (1999), starring Chris O'Donnell and Renée Zellweger." Renee Zellweger again! Weird. Actually, maybe not that weird.

Off topic. I started this illustration as a base for my new portfolio website design.  I want to finish this before I start the actual creation of the website, so here is a shot of it so far.  It was suppose to be a quick job but in reality all "small illustrations" take a good amount of time.  I do want it to be very graphic looking, drop-shadows and all, light and fun. You can click the image for a slight enlargement.
