Developing a Character

A potential client contacted me, telling me that they liked my work, and that they wanted a mascot created for their company and thought that I was the guy to do it.
After a few SKYPEs back and forth, I got to work on the design.
The company deals things such as servers, band width, and streaming video.
First, I drew a few roughs based on the conversation I had with them.

They liked the wizardly looking character, but wanted him more business like, not so much "elf".
So I drew this guy.

 Getting closer to the look they wanted, so I added color.

 It was decided that they didn't want the hat.
( I work in layers to keep things organized, so ta daaa)

Decided to lose the glasses. 
( Who loves layers? I do!)

 Needed something to suggest streaming video.

Almost there. Lose the wand and make it a cable.

Finally, make the cable longer, and there you have him.
