Project Description:
This is the entire brief for the logo. I would prefer not to fill out a logo questionnaire. Ask questions if something is not covered.

The logo will go on a website called [url removed, login to view] The website is for sports enthusiasts who belong to clubs or leagues to play golf, tennis, or similar sports in bracketed tournaments (4, 8, 16, 32) in either individual competitions or as partners. The website is set up by a league manager in brackets. When a player wins a match, he/she goes to the website, selects their name on the website, and then types in the score for the match. The bracket is updated; the player receives a congratulatory email, and has the option to tweet the result to the league and/or to update the league facebook page.

The logo depicts a person who has just won their match, and gives a fist pump in a very excited manner. The primary text says "Post a Win!" and the secondary text says "You won it, now post it!" The text could be on the right of the person, as an arc above, whatever seems to work best.

I have very specific requirements for the logo. Read this carefully so you won't have to re-do the logo because the requirements were not followed closely. I have attached two files. One is a photo of me doing the fist pump as I want it in the logo. The other photo is of a golfer (Brant Snedeker) who is wearing a golf/tennis visor that I like, and has the style of hair I would like, although it should be dark brown.

The player in the logo has to be pretty generic so that sports enthusiasts from around the world can relate to it:
--Unisex, hard to tell the age, could be late 20' or early 50's, about 5'10" tall, very athletic looking
--Wearing a golf/tennis shirt, shorts, tennis shoes that could also be used for golf. Orange shirt with beige or white shorts.
--Wearing a visor with longish hair sticking out as per attachment
--Fist pump: left hand doing fist pump; right hand raised high with handle of club showing, can't tell if it is golf or tennis handle
--Player is looking at the camera with huge grin, bursting with energy.
--Height is 75 pixels and can go as wide as 200 pixels, or a bit more if needed
--Player has same posture as attachment, leaning forward, going from left to right on web page. Show the entire body, or possibly with the legs cropped as in the picture so that the more of the person's upper body can be shown.
--It is a cartoon character, but looks pretty life like. Feel free to take liberties with accenting muscles, head size, whatever seems to work.

Keep in mind that the tone of the logo and the website is self-congratulatory, boasting, but done in a fun way. These are just amateurs having fun, but when they win a match they like to boast about it in a fun way--not too serious. The logo should have a lighthearted feel to it. Would like the logo to be eye catching with something clever in the design.

The background of the website will look like www.coursetrends.com. Colors used are shades of sky blue, shades of green like grass, and highlight using bright orange and bright red.

Would like to have the logo done in a week or so, but I will be patient to make sure the logo satisfies the requirements.
