Happy Holidaze by AdamHughes Happy Holidaze by AdamHughes
From a holiday issue of Playstation Magazine; I did this piece maybe... 12 years ago?

Pencil, ink, Adobe Photoshop.

***UPDATE!***

I completely forget that, to get this assignment done (this was one of 11 illustrations), I hired my then-studiomate Jason Martin to ink these!

Apologies to Jason for COMPLETELY forgetting that he inked this!

I am a Santa Claus look alike (with no pillow needed!) and my girlfriend resembles Lara Croft in certain strategic ways AND has a Santa Claus fetish! How lucky am I?!
