What's your vision?
I need an illustration that depicts a giant warrior arrayed in the colors of Google Inc. The character should be of the appearances closer to the giant from Jack and the beanstalk, rather than the biblical character of Goliath. The armor and weapon should be from medieval or biblical times The helmet should be red Green yellow and blue and clearly depict the round Google Chrome logo. So if you looked down on the helmet from above, you would clearly see the blue circle in the middle, and the green red and yellow patents on the side: e.g.: http://goo.gl/wKVYY All clothing and, should also be the same colors from the Google logo. Googliath's shield should have the big letter "G" in the same font used by Google (Catull), although you can roughen it up a little bit to make it look like it was hand painted rather than computer aided in keeping with the biblical/medieval theme. The character should be quite comical in appearance, the "Shrek" character would be a good reference point but more human. This character needs to have some unique characteristics so that when we use it in the future he can develop its own unique “brand” even though it is used in parody. The character should have the appearances of fat and lazy and yet fierce. In other words, the physical appearance should indicate he does not deserve the position of power that he has and that maybe it's about time somebody kicked his butt. We need several versions of the character, including one version where he holds a poll with the banner/flag. The flag should be blowing in the wind but designed in such a way that we can use it to insert other words or logos, for example we might want to use the giant character together with the logo from another company that is working with Google to develop their business. Another version is where Googliath is confidently looking at a young man armed only with a sling in the historical fight between David & Goliath. The you man should look bold and confidant, and yet humble and wise; just like the real David: See the following for ideas: http://goo.gl/n1DdM
