Richard III
or how to pay homage to a king who wasn't nice at all
 
 
The brief asked for a digital painting to go onto a poster for William Shakespeare's play "Richard III".
 
I decided to use the wax reconstruction of Richard III's face, where the scientists recreated his facial features based on his skull recently found at a dig site in a parking lot in England.
