Check out Hilda 99designs's Illustration or graphics contest…
What's your vision?
We’re looking for illustrations of what Elf on the Shelf is doing when no one's looking - where is he and what sorts of mischief is he getting up to? Elf on the Shelf is an elf doll that monitors children's behavior in the weeks before Christmas. The kids don't see him moving, but every morning he shows up in a new place in the house. The story is that during the night, while the children are asleep, the Elf goes back to the North Pole to report to Santa whether the kids have been naughty or nice. But here at 99designs we don't think that's the only thing that the Elf is up to at night . . . For more information, take a look at this article: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/12/23/elf-on-the-shelf-christmas_n_1167365.html
Here are some examples of what your illustration could be. Please explore these concepts. You can explore something different but consider Funny, Silly, and a little Edgy; the Elf being a bit of a Trouble Maker... And these should be events that could occur in a household at night during the holidays. — Elf on the Shelf hanging out with Barbies — Elf on the Shelf raiding the refrigerator — Later elf making a “snow angel” in the crumbs. — Elf on the Shelf riding the pet dog — Elf on the Shelf taking a selfie with a family portrait — Elf on the Shelf facetiming with Santa — Elf drawing with crayons on the living room wall. — Elf drinking from a boozy punch bowl left out after a holiday party. — Elf “hitting on”/“falling for” the angel tree topper — Elf rearranging refrigerator letter magnets to read EOTS WAS HERE (EOAS for Elf on the Shelf). — Elf composing slightly inappropriate haikus with refrigerator magnet poetry — Elf ruining the gingerbread house somehow — Elf interacting with the nativity scene in a mischievous way — Elf using the slow cooker as a hot tub with some other toys (dolls) — Elf taking Barbie's dream car for a joy ride — Elf in Barbie's dream house trying on her clothes. Her in the background with a shocked or disapproving look on her face? — Recreating scenes from famous movies with household items/toys/holiday decorations — Elf playing poker with other toys, much like the famous 'dogs playing poker' artwork. But no smoking! Cigars should be lolly pops and candycanes... maybe they're betting with candy, too. Be creative! Elf on the Shelf may be a doll, but the Elf himself is a grown up. While we don't want explicit content, we welcome things that are a little edgy! IMPORTANT: This will be a fast-paced contest as we’re looking to finish it up mid-next week. What that means is for the first 2 days, we’d like to see your sketched out concepts - don’t worry about completing the illustration. Once we’ve seen your concepts, we’ll take a look at your portfolio to get an idea of what your design style looks like. If we like your concept and design style, we’ll select you as a finalist around the 3rd or 4th day of the contest, and you can finish up your illustration. We’ll award several designers. THINGS TO AVOID: — 3D illustrations DELIVERABLES: . .jpg and single layer .psd source file
