I like it. How does it scale (aka: can I have one in 16x16, plz)?
Now posting IN STEREO (where available)

I like it, it's simple but more attention grabbing then the original (although pink is still really attention grabbing!)

*EDIT*
Actually, I think pink works well with Löve, why not make the pink circle enlarge itself on the bottom so the entire floor is pink except for the small circle of gray beneath the Nyu (or maybe he's Glee? I can't tell....)

pretty sure his a glee ^^hehe

heres what it looks like if i fill the circle

im also planning on removing the fold in the corner so it doesnt look like some form of text file and more like an application, what do you guys think? (it'll be like the smaller 16x16 version, which has a box around it rather than a creased paper)

edit: like this:

I say remove the green ring reflection on the sphere and it would be perfect. :megagrin:

Maybe it is perfect with the green reflection than. It is really well done.
I cannot help but still want to see it without the green reflection though.

Edit: Try making the pink circle smaller too. It seems to dwarf the blue guy a little.

just alot less sexy in my opinion (smaller pink + no reflections). smaller pink circle makes it feel unbalanced a little bit too now huh. before it was the same size as the green ring, which is why it looked good (to me anyway?)

I agree on pink being too small, but I like it better without the reflection. Also, the grey curves in the background might be a little too complex for a background.
