"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?"
David Tennant as Hamlet, Prince of Denmark.
At first, I wanted to do a quick sketchy version of it, then I thought of trying out pastel pencils on black paper because of the background, but eventually my love for graphite got the best of me and I ended up drawing it in pencil after all. But the background is actually black watercolour pencil, since it would have been shiny as hell if I had done it in 9B. The reference had quite unusual lighting and I had hard time recreating it, so it doesn't look right in some places, but the general impression is good, methinks.
