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.

I just wanted to make sure it wasn't more work one way or the other.

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.

It is better to do prepaid sir.

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

Hotel Butler Robot
I am looking for an industrial design of a hotel butler robot with manufacturing specification. I would like an interchangeable face module - 1 with the mascot as the face, another with a screen as the face. Additionally the robot needs to have an interchangeable stand to make it taller like the Double ipad stand. http://www.doublerobotics.com/ Here are some of the specs the robot needs to possess so you can factor it into the design: Size: 56 x 35 x 35 cm Weight: 5-8kg with the majority of the weight at the bottom of the robot Exterior Components: • Rechargeable battery pad/station Interchangeable Modules: • Butler face head • Screen face head • Stand (Double Like) to extend height http://www.doublerobotics.com/ Internal Component: • 1080HD w night vision camera • 2W speaker with 22mm diaphragm • 1 microphone • 1HDMI output • 1USB output • 1SD card slot • Range finder sensors • Ground detection sensors • Object Detection sensors • 4 motors feedback control • Head rotation 2 Axes: 1st +/- 90°, 2nd +80°/-60° • Base Movement 360° (2 drive wheels, 3rd support wheel) • Electrical Rechargeable Battery • Wifi & SIM Card Deliverable: 1) Butler Robot looking mostly like the attached mascot with an interchangeable screen module and rechargeable pad design 2) Adjustable height stand – see Double for reference 3) Video showing its movement and interchangeable module in order to show to the client 4) Manufacturing specifications
Inventor product block maintenance
We have a large number of CAD blocks representing our product range which require alteration. The work is quite straight forward but high in volume. There will be a number of weeks work with the potential for ongoing work. An understanding of the vault filing system used for Inventor would be an advantage but is not essential.
PCB Design
Design PCB from BOM and board dimensions. Circuit design should resemble photos. Provide all files necessary to manufacture PCB. Schematic, Gerber, etc.
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.
