Stealth Startup Needs a 3D Image and Model Version of our Logo Character

in 3D Modeling Design held by Russ Baker
Contest Ended, Winner(s) have been selected.
Description:
Our company "Avalon Holographics" is developing holographic display technology. We've already got a logo, but we'd like to get some 3D modeled versions of the logo character (head) made for several purposes:
1. Use as a splash screen for the product (which uses 3D models from engines like Unreal already)
2. Use as a graphic in promotional materials
3. Create objects (via 3D printer or manufacturer) for demo and promotion

Ideally, we'd like both a static model and one where the guy's hair is on "fire" and moving/waving (animation).

The core themes we worked with for the original logo and continue to want to follow are: open, inquisitive, playfulness, intensity

I've attached several variations on our logo as the basis for the design and colours, and we're open to creativity. There's also a graphic from the website (www.avalonholographics.com) that maybe helps convey the themes.
Wants:
Style, feel that matches our logo and website, something that can be 3D printed and/or manufactured into promotional materials (like foamy squeeze balls, etc.), looks good rendered in a 3D or VR environment. The resolution should be sharp enough to look good on a large screen (36"+), but it should also work well on a very small screen (
Don't Wants:
Not too "cartoony", not overly complex in the graphic details. We've attached a rough example that one of our SW people whipped up as VERY loose guidance, but please don't let it pollute your creativity or heavily influence your thinking (unless you ultimately think that starting point is a good fit - which it may be).
Company Logo:
Yes
Software:
  1. Unreal Engine (4)
  2. Adobe Photoshop
  3. GIMP
Additional Information
Clarifying a few points from the original project:

Purposes for the logo:
1. Use as a splash screen for the product (which uses 3D models from engines like Unreal already)
2. Use as a graphic in promotional materials
3. Create objects (via 3D printer or manufacturer) for demo and promotion

In addition to the static 3D model described above, we'd also like an animation where the guy's hair is moving. There are two possible "looks" we'd like for the animation:
1. Hair is waving slowly, as though the character is under water
2. Something that evokes "fire", but without being an actual fire graphic (this one is probably harder)


Evaluation Criteria

Style, feel that matches our logo, website and company themes. The character should be cute, curious and playful, but also a little intense. And we mostly want to avoid "hard edges" to keep the feel light - and to make manufactured objects easier and durable.

In terms of colour, we're going to have a strong preference to keep the main head object matching the orange of the logo, and any reflections should match the lighter yellow of the logo.

Hi all - I've extended the contest because I didn't have enough good options to choose from. But I've also prepaid now, and we're headed in the right direction on a few of the designs, so keep at it!

FYI, I've added a zip file for the original logo materials, in case anyone needs .eps or .ai to work from.

Yes, we are flexible in terms of file type - we mainly want some flexibility in managing the content down the road.

Are you open to other software, like blender, and converting files or saving as the appropriate file type?

Design the coolest penis rings
We already have a successful line of vibrating penis rings, to get an idea visit http://www.ovo.de/en/category/rings. The new line will be different, though, ovo is a line created with a white, clean, mainstream concept, the new line will be branded LooP. "LooP Maximum Performance"will be inspired in sports and concept cars, men worldwide appeal very well to sports cars and performance is always related to them, therefore, sexual performance can be inspired in sports cars. Designers need to take the following into account: 1. Vibrating penis rings must meet their promise, they deliver orgasms by stimulating both, men and women during intercourse, designers must think of the ergonomics of sex, the ring constrains the flow of blood to the penis but the part that holds the motor serves a double purpose, it indirectly stimulates men and directly stimulates the clitoris, so successful designs must consider an elevation of the part that holds the motor. 2. I envision these rings as a fusion between the ring and a sports car, the front of the "car" is the ring and the hood holds the motor, the elevation that will get in contact with the clitoris is the "windshield" and the hood, the vibration from the motor will diffuse to the "windshield" and the "hood" the back of the ring is just pure design. 2. The material is medical grade silicone as it is stretchy and tissue safe, this also means the following constrains: Silicone is matt finished, attaining a glossy color is somewhat difficult but not impossible, there should not be too many elements in the ring as these rings perform in a "wet" environment, bacteria can get inside the joints of different layers. 3. I want 16 different rings, each of them inspired in a sports or concept car, we will have suggestive names for them like "Loop Stealth", "LooP M3", "LooP Viper", etc. Finally, Have fun, I think it's an amazing project!! PS. Attached is our number one selling penis ring from the current line, that will give you an idea on size, weight and motor positioning. Also, I have attached a preliminary logo, the symbol you see is the celtic symbol of virility which could nicely be used in the rings the same way sports car have a symbol on the hood.
Do Covid in Style: Innovative New Copper Masks to Stay Safe and Look Great!
High level, I would like to produce Covid Masks from a Hemp fabric that are fashionable, with a Copper Mesh as the breathing apparatus. The copper can be the entire face plate or just the mouth and/or nose. The mask has to be very comfortable and easy to wear and to clean/wash. Copper has many anti bacterial/anti virus benefits, and many cooling benefits. Hemp fabric also has cooling benefits. The Copper needs to be a type of mesh so it is easy to breathe in and out (vs. through the fabric, which creates heat). The copper component needs to be breathable (small holes through the mesh) or some other approach. One challenge is breathing out air into a mask creates Heat. A HUGE innovation would be if there are way to Cool the Mask (w water, a fan, etc) -- anything to keep the person wearing the mask cool. These products will significantly improve health outcomes. In addition, they will be positioned as fashion statements -- so the Cool factor is very important.
