Absinthe by leighyoung Absinthe by leighyoung
Boy, I never thought I'd see this one finished. I've seen it done in my head for weeks now I was afraid I wouldn't get it done in real like, that I'd lose interest in it. But it's done now!

I give total credit to for the text. I knew I wanted her to be drinking absinthe, and he came up with the little tag line for me. I did a bit of research on it and discovered that it is an hallucinant so the bunnies visiting a goth chick all came together.

Again, excuse the watermark but I gotta do what I gotta do.

This one will be a print as soon as I find time and patience to do all the sizing and saving.

...What up2knowgood said.  Get educated on absinthe here:  <www.wormwoodsociety.org> These good folks are doing their level best to dispel the mythology and drug-culture crap that surrounds the world's most maligned and misunderstood drink.

Okay, this is awesome, but I feel compelled to correct you(please forgive me).

Absinthe is not a hallucinogen like people claim it is.  It doesn't contain any hallucinogens, it is most certainly not like LSD, or THC, the stories originate from improper consumption.  All absinthe is 90 proof(45% alcohol by volume) or higher, which is higher than most whiskey brands, so the hallucinogenic properties come from the alcohol when drunk straight, not some mysterious chemical in the absinthe.  That's why you're supposed to water it down with three parts water for each part absinthe, and sweeten with a sugar cube, because it is quite bitter. 

That said, I do get, and appreciate the joke.  A goth seeing something pink and fluffy, and is massively confused.

Great job on her expression, and the different shades of blue are well crafted and toned. The pink bunnies are hilarious, too. :XD:

Mmmm. Absinthe. My favourite way to get inebriated. I'm definitely adding this print to my wishlist. You've got a definite knack for capturing priceless facial expressions.

The green fairy has come again! Good lord.
Are those chocolate chip cookies? They look very chunky; I thought they were berries on biscuits or something at first ^^' Hey, it's Absinthe, after all. I'm going all out with my imagination here. :D
As usual, the girl is positively lovely! Oh, and that lamp is completely awesome (I wish that I had one like it!)

I always wanted to try Absinthe. I'm just not willing to go to Amsterdam to get it.

Very nice. I really like how you draw shapely ladies. Plus the "OMG" look on her face is priceless.

Lol, I love the contrast of the goth girl and the pink bunnies :XD: But what I most like in it is that you developed a pic about absinthe using very little green... usually 'absinthe pics' are all green! And you pulled it off totally nice! :clap:

absinthe is the most unrefreshing drink ever. blech. But you'd have to totally OD on it to be able to 'seeeee' anything. This is too cute however. The bunnies! I wish pink bunnies would follow me around and offer me cookies

In my limited research I read that the stuff they sell nowadays doesn't have the same crazy effect and that it did taste pretty bad. That's why you need to pour it over sugar.

I'm an absinthe Drinker, even a member of a club of drinkers online, and yes, it's a bit bitter, but it's also Anised, so it's not so disgusting by itself, but the sugar doeas add a nice taste to it, and the ice cold water , just like with any anised drink, makes it louche, which is it turns white with cold water as the oils of the wormwood split... oh and even if it's shown like that in movcies, you should NEVER ignite your absinthe, not only do you burn the alcohol away, but you can crack the glass and it spreads quickly, so it's really dangerous... and yes, it used to have Thujone, a hallucinogen, but the nowadays versions don't have it, or have it in doses under 20%... so it's not that bad.... hehehe, sorry for the long, yet I hope informative post.
