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

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 and prototype an iPhone and iPod touch case that incorporates a right angle lens and 2x zoom lens. Also maybe model a cavity for extra battery pack if possible. A laser pointer would be a bonus. I realize the components will result in a somewhat bulky design. I am ok with that. Also, not sure how to budget here. Putting 1000 to start.
The interior of wooden houses
Hi! I urgently need to make the visualization of the interior of three houses. It's actually quite simple. All you need to do is just apply the material of wood in the interior (floors, ceiling, beams, etc.) In some images you will need to make the fireplace, as specified in the example. I attached 3 ready models with the camera settings. And all the other additions you will find in the attached file. In the example, there are all images which correspond to the name of each house. Unfortunately I can't give more information, because that's all I was given by the customer. But if you carefully view all of the attached material, everything is clear described.

Euler Motors
Govt. of India has introduced new category of Vehicle - E Rickshaw last year primarily to uplift the working condition of rickshaw-pullers (from an otherwise physically taxing mode of commute, rickshaw pullers and drivers now have an easier and greener alternative.) E Rickshaw comes in two variant - Passenger Vehicle and Goods Carrier. Euler Motors is working on 3 Wheeler Electric Good Carrier variant for Indian Market - Tier 3/4 Markets { Villages, Small Townships }. Here is specification according to government :- 1. Top Speed = 25 Km/H 2. Load Capacity = 310 Kgs 3. Length x Width x Height = 2.8 m x 1 m x 1.8 m . (Dimensions are in Meters) Here are some of the existing version of E Rickshaw Goods Carrier :- https://goo.gl/kTx6ho https://goo.gl/vWCgjm https://goo.gl/wFLdQZ https://goo.gl/SSYsfy https://goo.gl/3FTk7n https://goo.gl/p2xjS3 Salient Features That Euler Motors is working on :- 4.3” Inch Digital Display { Link = https://goo.gl/5EJFuw } instead of Regular Dial based display { Link = https://goo.gl/CpC4fv }. This display will display stats around Speed, Battery Left, Temp., Headlights, Indicator Reverse Backup Camera : To enhance Safety of the vehicle and driver, a reverse backup camera will be attached to the rear - centre of the vehicle. Display from camera would appear on the 4.3” Digital display when vehicle reverses. Li Ion Battery will be placed in front of the vehicle {below the driver’s seat}. However the structure should be made in a way that the battery can taken out from enclosure within 2 minutes if required. Entire battery back will consist of 2 modules. Each module will be of following dimensions Each Module’s Weight = 12 Kgs Each Module’s size : Length x Width x Height = 220 mm x 210 mm x 355 mm 2 Modules can be arranged along the width of vehicle or height in the battery pack. Required Items inside the Vehicle:- Li Ion Charging Spot needs to be on the vehicle installed. Vehicle needs to include First Aid Box Mini Fire Extinguisher Vehicle Charging Point needs to be on vehicle { https://goo.gl/Ngp8KZ , https://goo.gl/5p7buC } Standard vehicle parts - Front head light {LED headlight}, Front Indicator, Tail Lights, Rear Indicator, brake pedal. Accelerator in the conventional 3 wheeler are along the handle.
