I used myself as the initial model in order to get the basic body shape correct. Next I altered the body size, hair and face as needed to make it look nothing like me.

The glass is a vintage cocktail glass which is currently very much so in style and can be found being used at the hippest bars. I also wanted to pay homage to the vintage french liquor ads that this was inspired by.
