See the red and white she has on? See the candy cane walking stick he has? THAT'S ALL REFERENCING CHRISTMAS!!! So let's drop the damn pretense and the PC "holiday" crap, shall we? It's MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!
So to hell with all the other holidays, this image is about CHRISTMAS. You know, the christian holiday about the birth of Jesus Christ.
It has nothing to do with any other holiday or religion. If that hurts your little feelings then oh well... it's about time you start developing your emotional defenses.

Adam, have you ever thought of writing and or drawing a humorous one shot, maybe? Just for shits and giggles. Personal narratives that you could share here.

I love the atmospheric shading and bold outlines.


it's okay if you're a muslim, a christian or a jew
it's okay if you're agnostic and you don't know what to do
an all inclusive celebration, no contractual obligation
happy chrismahanukwanzakah to you

I just *have* to ask this: Do you still colour with that work of the devil known as... computer-mice?! 0_o

If so... then this is some unbelievable mousing-quality, I must say.
AdamHughes's avatar
Yes; I'm still using a mouse.

*...stares blankly into space...*

You're a machine! 0_o

Hmm... I'm guessing you've tried something like the Wacom Cintiq ( big screen that you draw straight on) once or twice? How'd you describe the difference?

Natalie Portman? D:
My only complaint is that the face on padme looks too realistic for the outline to be there.
AdamHughes's avatar
Yeah, the face gave me trouble. It's a bit realistic for the rest of the piece. Ah, well, every piece is a learning opportunity.
