Company name

Lamplighter Games

Overview

We like making mobile games.
It’s not any more complicated than that.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

Mobile gamers of all ages!

Requirements

1) Character Style:
Fun, over the top, big eyes, dominant features, angry/grumpy but still lovable (like a grandpa).
Face is most important and should be the majority of this image's detail rather than a real life proportional head to body ratio.

2) Graphic Style:
2D, 3/4 angle (view), Shading with solid darker colors (no gradient preferred, but minimal gradient use is OK), No black outlines, bright fun colors, dolphin should be some shade of blue/grey.

Stylistic Example:

3) Additional Notes
We think the dolphin should be wearing a cab driver's hat to signify that he's a cab driver. Any other ideas to signify a cab driver dolphin are welcome. Please make the hat or other items separate layers.
DO NOT make the dolphin driving a cab or include anything in the background. We are only looking for the Dolphin character for this contest.

Cab Hat example: http://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/6068593
(no need for "Yellow Cab" letters on hat itself)

A newsie hat would also work:

4) Personal Touch:
Go crazy with ideas about how to make the dolphin look grumpy! We hope the designer can come up with fun stuff we can't think of! And don't forget, grumpy but lovable!
