The hologram of alien Santa. He breaks into people's houses and leaves presents for the kids who kept their pets free of cerebral parasites.

edit: Fixed the few stray colors that escaped my notice. It's down to the proper 4 colors.

@SeDiceBisconte Thank you very much!
Funnily enough, this is my least favourite entry here on PJ (although I spent the most time on it). 
I knew that I wanted to make a hologram once I read the theme, but after talking with Jinn, I decided to go old-school and just use the three primary colors in a CRT-like effect. I usually like even more outlandish aliens, but intentionally kept this one simpler, because any fine details would be lost in the RGB combo and if I made the alien too... alien, it would lose the Santa familiarity.

@wakimojo
Thanks! I wouldn't say skill exactly. I do have decent understanding of how displays work, so same as my other work, I think I have more perseverance and basic aesthetic sense than actual talent. In other words: pick at it until it feels right.

Didn't get a chance to comment at the time but came across this again and it was my favourite entry for the Alien Santa challenge. There have been other pieces with a similar colour-blending effect, but I can't think of any where it's so thematically appropriate or looks so good (those scanlines are fantastic). I also love the design of the alien Santa so much!

the fact that we can see cyan, magenta, white and yellow when they're not there... skill!

@Theoden
Thank you!

@Trigonomancer
They are just... involuntary bug testers.

@sushy
Thank you very much! As he would say: ϗѻ, ϗѻ, ϗѻ.

@Quiara
Thanks! He deserves more colors, but that's what happens when you get An Idea.

@Jinn
Thanks a lot! I hope it's on the safe side of eye-cancer.

In 2077, Krampus gives bad children seizures instead of coal.

Wow that a remarkable Santa!

Woah! Extremely cool execution, and I love the illusion of the pure white.
