In my poker forum, we started a new group.  We would like an image of a drunk/unshaven penguin with a stubby cigar for a logo.  We are the Ante Up Cheap Stakes Club, or A.U.C.S. Club.  Since the great auk is a penguin, we've adopted the penguin as our mascot.  I have an image of the classic cartoon hobo morphed into a penguin in my head.

Now, we are Cheap, so there is no pay for this work.  However, when we do get tshirts made, we will send you one.

If this post violates the rules of the forums, just delete it and send me a PM, please mods.

Thanks!  I'm going to share this with the group and get some feedback from them.  Even if we don't use this design, when we make shirts, you're getting one for effort!

Any chance of getting a bit more profile to make it easier to tell it's a penguin?  We're going to use a background of poker chips and cards on the ground for the internet version of whatever we select.  I don't know if this image is gonna be too much to put on a tshirt, we don't want to price them too high.

Thanks again!

No rush, and, again, thank you very much.  Everyone liked your picture.

Here is an example of something closer to what we're looking for.  Something that we can send to Cafe Press to put on a tshirt.  We'd like to see some cards or poker chips around it, too.

Dude, no rush.  Black and white and simple is probably best.  Maybe "AUCS" on his shirt or in the background.

Just received verification, the tshirts will be a go.  So, whoever gets picked for the final artwork gets a free shirt.  Bdoomed does, too, even if his work isn't chosen.

You are the BOMB (and win on ties  ;) ).  I'll forward these on.  I think they should be fine.

They have a Logo "A" that they might swap out with your "A" in A.U.C.S.

I sent you a PM, bdoomed, but not sure if it went, stoopid board.  Pick something and send me your mailing info, I'll get it sent out to you this week.

More artwork wanted!

This is a paying gig.  $25.  I want a stylized "Z", reminiscent of a Chaos Legion from Warhammer 40K.  Preferably something that looks good at sizes from poster to thumbnail.  I want toxic green for the main color, and want it to look good when rendered in black and white.
