I don't have much in the way of Christmas Elves, but the woodland and brownie varieties are a different matter. This is one of two pieces I produced for a Japanese children's calendar back in the day.

I don't often show this because when I did this in Japan children's work was an escape from advertising, for these one-off commissions I often slipped into self-indulgence and let my Golden Age influences pour onto the page. The other image is even more so.
I wouldn't get away with it now I think, but, derivative or not, I really like this image!

Just charming! What a wonderful little world for those elves -- and YOUR muted colors are perfect.
