Here's an illustration I did last fall for this February's issue of Playboy magazine.

***OK, it's NOT John McCain; it's one of my g*****n accidental likenesses. If you WANT it be John McCain, that's fine; it's not like he's busy right now.

***Mature Content Update****

Since someone 'reported' this piece, DA has put a 'Mature Content' label on this deviation. WHERE, I don't know, because it's not showing up on my monitor anywhere.

So, the Big Debate can be ended; someone slapped a label on the silly thing. I apologoze for not reading DA's article defining mature content as regards to items posted on their site.

Since the Mature Label has been placed firmly on this dangerous piece of propaganda, and therefore cancers have been cured, poverty ended, and terrorism defeated in our lifetime, I think we can all MOVE ON.

Please go pick on someone else; I'm still smartin' from the Mary Jane fiasco...

Shit man.. I thought that cropped version was the whole picture.. then I can across this! I love the pink, and I hate pink, but the whole negative space thing is cool. 
Wingsley Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2016
It's definitely McCain.

But now, the burning question: are they "real"?

Great artwork!

The pink goes perfectly in this.

People are funny.
I lived in New Zealand for a while. Equality for all, no laws against being topless, go topless in public to your heart's content, whatever gender you are. It's all legal, and everyone's fine with it.
In fact, one of the Politicians who was born in the UK objected to an annual Boobs on Bikes parade that runs through the main streets of the big cities every year. They wanted it banned.
They were advised, very politely, that the government understood their objections and that, if they were deeply offended, they were free to go home to the UK where such things are illegal, but New Zealand law wasn't going to change.
Awesome. :D
Like your pic, really. Awesome. ;)

Being topless is legal in my city because of a lawsuit demanding if men and can do it why not women. Well the liberal women won and cops cannot arrest women because they are showing off or when breast feeding. If kids see it so what? They were probably fed on them. Whoever flag you should not be in this website anyway because they do not the meaning of deviant art. 

So keep on making great work, I'll give you many green flags!!!

Nice coloring

Cool painting, and its way more pg-13 than most movies 'kids' are allowed to see nowadays. Some censorship cracks me up!
TheRealLucieth Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Mature tags are purely so kids aren't exposed to nudity. Or people who doesn't want nudity. And she's got her tits out. 
Great illustration none the less. I didn't know people didn't read the rules on forums before joining especially since you've been here so long. :D

"Since the Mature Label has been placed firmly on this dangerous piece of propaganda and therefore cancers have been cured, poverty ended, and terrorism defeated in our lifetime, I think we can all MOVE ON."

i think that was uncalled for. You publish that image in playboy who can only sells to adults 18 and over and you make light of the site rules that allow teens as members? Not very adult of you i have to say saddly
kiichigochan Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
omg... why people make so much noise?!! they're only a pair of boobies!!!! it's not anything explicit! there are a lot of pics on DA that are MORE explicit than this and no one have put a mature tag on them!!!!
By the way, your art is always beautiful  Mr. Hughes! *-* you're one of my most fav artists!
ConfidentialReporter Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2013
Hilarious how edgy old Deviant Art has mutated into another cannibal's kitchen of PC behaviour.

It's perfectly drawn bare boobs, not BDSM or something.

Don't humans breastfeed any more for crying out loud?

It's great.
Dragonblaze87 Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2013
Love all the Pinkness and Amazing job on her breasts
MrG00 Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2013  Professional Digital Artist

I loooove this. Is this done all in photoshop?
LeonardoIpe Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2012
I loved your Mary Jane.
borkington Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2012
hahaha, i totally thought that was McCain as well, but its way funnier that way. Great work.
beefers Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
sweet Jebus I wish you did more erotic/mature content. Your work is -as always- incredible.
CrankKitty Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2012
I like how her shirt blends with the bg.
The pervy old men are a nice touch too, heh.
Cheers to your excellent work.

Gorgeous piece.
AuroraDark Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This is wonderful. I love the vivid use of colors, and the sharp contrast between her smooth coloring and the muted shading of the background. I only wish this image was larger, to see it better. :)
curiousjon Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2012
This piece works on so many levels, I love it.
DaswookofHeromorph Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Was Power Girl your inspiration for this pic?
AdamHughes Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2012
No; just similar hairstyles. :-)
DaswookofHeromorph Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist

Frankenstein says, "NUDITY...BAD!!! VIOLENCE...ACCEPTABLE!!!"
hobojoe2013 Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2011  Student Digital Artist
Dude I agree 100 percent. Im still shocked to this day that nudity is considered more offensive than violence. That quote made my day :)
SuddenlyPeaches Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2011
... yeah, I see it too: Saturday Evening Post with John McCain peering in... if only John could figure that world wide web thingy out, he could get out of the window. And the camera/window is clever too. Alot going on here.
MCRmy-Strong Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
This is absolutely beautiful!
I love the muscle and skin definition in the woman and the implied lines for her legs.
And the mob of viewers just makes it perfect <3
If I could grade this, I'd give you an A+++
Taryne-Gisele Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2011
I'm really in favore of you doing something else like this but the girl holding the mature content image over her tits. :D
ArtWithCause Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I know it is over but i think the mature tab thing is pathetic, it's not even like it's a photo.
inkwell221 Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2011  Student General Artist
I can't get over how Rockwellian the window of onlookers is. Their hysterical expressions and rosy realism make me think of every Saturday Evening Post Cover :)
SodiumVapor Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
always phenomenal
CorpusVermis Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist
Beautiful work, and even if McCain were 'busy' I think he would stop everything to go look in that window.
Pompster Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2011   General Artist
i got reported for something that didnt seem "mature" to me too. seriously, no naughty bits or anything.. everything was covered.. i don't get it. Still... its a great picture. good job. People are just haters and like to rain on other's parades

Wow! I've been looking at your work for hours, and just can't stop. Thank you for sharing your knowledge, it helped me improve a lot in really little time. Now I just need better lineart to start with, and I'll be happy with my work :D Thank you very much!
AdamHughes Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2011
You're very welcome!
HInoRYUU Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'm just amazed... Today I saw your DC covers book in a Store, and some Wonder Woman covers, too! I can't believe I'm actually talking to you :D I'm speechless.
