Prince of Denmark

This image began merely as a prince peering over a castle wall, but approximately 99.9% of the way through, I realized it could make a cool cover for Hamlet. I used Gill Sans and Bauer Bodoni for the text. I love Bodoni but rarely get the chance to use it, so I thought I'd seize the day.

I like the crazy hair on the back of his head. :) And the shading on the face. Very cool. And the way his mouth is made from his nose and his chin. :)

If I were ever to like Hamlet, this would be the version!
