Will have a cockatoo on shoulder, hence facial scars and head ornamentation. Not exactly Simpsons style of shading, but I guess this is pretty much an AA challenge? :P

Would something like this be ok, or is the point to copy Simpsons' drawing style?

It has to at least look like a Simpsons character. That does not qualify, in my eyes.

Ok, thanks for the clarification. What I had in mind was a Simpsonator, not a human/animal character. Any suggestions on what to change to make it more of a Simpsons character and yet keep it terminatorish - drop the lighting/shading aside from yellowish, huge white circles for eyes? Quick example:
