Vintage Absinthe Ad

This is the original ad that I'll be reproducing, originally made by Belgian artist Henri Privat-Livemont.

To go in for a little background, I've been using Illustrator for about 2.5 years now and was introducted to it in school.  Prior to college I used mostly Photoshop and even after having used Illustrator for a couple years now I don't believe I know enough about the program to call myself a professional with it, which is what I'm hoping to get out of this class.  As for why I chose this piece, I really was drawn to the colors of it. It isn't overly complex, but has a lot of shapes that I think it will challenge me enough. I also love the art nouveau style. I haven't started on the poster yet.  I'll post my progress as I go, though.

Progress so far. Did most of the woman. Still need to get the white lines in the hair and the face details for her. Doing the background will probably take a while once I get to that.
