Naked Girl. I’m happy with the result but I need to dress the naked girl 🙂 So… I decide to use cheesecloth to make a dress. I paste pieces of cheesecloth one by one around the body and bottle. I want to be sure the dress complement the beautiful bottle tag without visual obstruction.

 

Artwork Ready.
Artwork Ready. The girl holding the key, the dress around the bottle and the cap are little details who reinforce the visual message of the final piece. I’m happy with the result 🙂 Cheeeeers with Mezcal Viejo Indecente!!!!
