Illustration Friday: Flawed

This week Illustration Friday gave us the word "Flawed" to illustrate. Already having a fairly full plate this week, I decided to make this image very quickly - one might say "cheap and cheerful". The result is the image you see above. I've opted for a musical theme for Illustration Friday before, but I rather liked the idea of Biggins playing a violin very badly, and people around him comitting suidice out of desperation - thus illustrating the flaws in Biggins' playing.
This was eventually considered too time-costly, so I simplified the idea to Biggins simply playing a violin (neither well nor poor), and Charlie simply reacting in an over-the-top fashion. For a quick image it's turned out...okay.

Violin sounds beautiful and a flawed violin sounds awful..but Biggins looks very good with it, lol Poor Charlie.. I like the effect of other got some movement on it.
Fantastic, Jim!

After suffering through 5 children going through the screechy phase of stringed instrument playing I can say that I relate to the pig.

Good job.
