Gaming companies are sharing all sorts of special artwork on social media at the moment to celebrate the holidays and new year, and joining in on the fun is Sega's official Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter account.

It recently shared a stunning carnival scene featuring Sonic and a number of classic characters such as Mighty, Ray, Fang and Bean. This picture was actually done by Nathalie Fourdraine, who has helped out with a number of covers on IDW's Sonic comic series. We've also got some holiday art (above) highlighting characters like Cream and Amy Rose.

"Wishing everyone a happy and healthy New Year from all of us at SEGA!"
