Great work! Why not add colors to make this fun character even more enjoyable to look at? The shirt, the hat and the pants of the elf are filled with a bright green color. The pattern on top of the shirt is red while the hair, the shoes, the belt and the pupils are brown. A little bit of yellow can also be added on the center of the belt and the pants are slightly darker than the shirt.
