When I saw the title my first thought was, "Oooh I think I'll do one of those pompous, snobby Elves from Tolkien."
But now I've actually read the post, I guess I won't. :lol:

Always read the brief before starting. :)

This is a tough one.
Usually when I don't get an idea straight away I spend some time on Google images looking for inspiration or reference or mood. But with this, whenever you google Christmas Elves the only thing (the ONLY thing) it displays ... is that God-awful Elf On The Shelf thing.
Every single picture is that terrible little monstrosity!
I hate it!!!!

Anyway with that rant over I'll calmly add that I think I do have an idea now and have started a sketch that hasn't been immediately ditched. Not enough to post yet but I'll see how it goes.

Google adapts their search results for the user, don't they? They must think you really NEED that elf on the shelf. I only get a few pics of it when searching for "christmas elf". When I search for "santas helper" I get women in masquerade costumes... Google has weird ideas about us...
