"After the first glass of absinthe you see things as you wish they were. After the second you see them as they are not. Finally you see things as they really are, and that is the most horrible thing in the world."
-Oscar Wilde

Thank you Marcus J. Ranum :iconmjranum-stock: for the beautiful reference photo. www.ranum.com

Adobe Illustrator CS5, a LOT of pen tool, then a lot of custom calligraphic brush work.

The quote suits the piece perfectly...and the piece itself is excellent.

That wingwork is fantastic as well as her pose. You've really succeeded in using shades of the same color to do this without losing any of the picture or its effect. Well done.
