What's your vision?
I want a vectorized, layered design for a featured character on my website. I would use the following words to describe the character: Bad ass, Confident, Has a cocky smile, Muscular, Large, Has a mohawk, Wears "biker" clothing. I want the style of the illustration to be like a cartoon. More in the veins of Mario or Disney than, detailed and realistic. However, I do NOT want the character to look "kiddie" or cute. I would like two vector files. I want the first image to be with the characters head slightly down but his eyes are looking directly forward. He is smiling in a cocky, mysterious, and almost arrogant way. I want the look of the eyes and mouth to be clear and stand out above the rest of the character. I think the image should clearly convey: Hi. Don't F*%k with me. Especially in the image of the eyes and mouth. Just provide a vectorized, layered image of the character in a relaxed, standing, confident pose. I want the second image to appear more mysterious and "bad ass." Something for the purpose of creating a brandable, abstract LOGO that reflects the full design of the character.This is what I had in mind, feel free to alter it if you wish: I would like there to be a completely black background. I want to convey a sense of curiosity in the prospect when he or she first views this illustration. I would like to see just the eyes and mount of the character, nothing else. Refer to face1.jpg and face2.jpg in the attached files. I will use this image on our homepage, up top, and right next to the UVP. Needless-to-say, its got to instantly convey to the prospect what the "musician monster" is all about, and make them curious to find out more about our site. I would also like this image to be acceptable to put on a t shirt.
After seeing a couple of submissions, I want to give a few general suggestions. Please Increase the overall shadow of the character, the more submissions I am seeing the more I think it would be better if the character appeared "faceless" with the focus on his body's silhouette. Let the eyes and mouth remain centerpiece, conveying most of the characters personality. I sincerely appreciate it!

Ashur's communication is amazing, his artwork is out of this world and easy to work with! There is no one better. This is my 2nd project with him and won't be the last.
