Alas, poor Yorick! I knew him, Horatio: a fellow of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy. He hath borne me on his back a thousand times; and now, how abhorred in my imagination it is! my gorge rises at it. Here hung those lips that I have kissed I know not how oft. Where be your gibes now; your gambols, your songs? your flashes of merriment, that were wont to set the table on a roar? Not one now, to mock your own grinning? Quite chap-fallen? Now get you to my lady's chamber, and tell her, let her paint an inch thick, to this favour she must come.

William Shakespeare, "Hamlet"

yay!

i love how the skull is not the main focus of the piece, but the text conforms to the skull shape.

very nice genee .. I liek that it doesnt have a real focus to it the skull and teh text seem to have equal importance and teh blood spatter while bright isnt too distracting


oh yeah and ThIs Iz TtLy EmO 4 rEeLz

i've worked with a lot of skulls - and even i had a hard time identifying that at first :/ - - - props on not being totally emo and using the cliche typical skull shots... But.... it's hard to read... - - - i'm sure it would be a real pain in the ass and a crap-ton of work, but for this quote - could you use the text to form the lines of a hand holding a skull (in the typical hamlet pose)?

Hurray for Shakespeare!

i like this a lot G, makes a really nice overall image without having too much of a focus on one element.

shit - i just noticed, basically what wulla said!!

I like the low contrast of it, but what's a Hamlet?

I didn't even know the guy and I feel bad for him. Imagine how Hamlet felt...poor guy.

St.Germain

I agree wih rudra. you have no idea it is refering to Hamlet, unless you read it and I don't want to be standing there while people stare at my chest... but I do like the type treatment.

I like it, rock it in the Northeast and people will know the meaning without having to read it. Can't speak for the rest of the country/world though...

littlem

it looks great. i like that people will have to get very close to my body to read it. NOT! :P

Omair

have you ever played castlevania?

...

cuz Yorick is a skeleton that runs around kicking it's skull.

Looks steller. The placement is bugging me, though. Center the skull...have the blodd splatter off-center. Or will that make you look like your bewb is lactating plasma?

I agree Mezo, It would be cool if the splatter were going across the shoulder even. I think I was trying to avoid seams. Yum lactating plasma!!
