I must say that your icon is among the best I've seen so far. I even 
replaced my own creation with yours :)

I have spent the past few days looking at the icon in the dock, and 
there has been something slightly irritating about it. Here's how I 
think it could be improved further.

1.	The 'head' is too big on the figure, and I think it lacks features, 
such as eyes and a smile.  ( Is it just me that is reminded of a 
children's program from ages ago where the characters were big 
colourful blobs ? )

2.	The icon looks a bit too flat and 2 dimensional compared to the 
others in the dock. It needs a little bit of 3D effects done to it to 
make it fit in better.

Perhaps you could provide us with a couple of source files, one of the 
background papers and one of the figure, so that we could have a play 
around with it ?  Never used inkscape, and is not too keen on 
installing it either, so perhaps you could provide them as .png's or 
some other common format for Illustrator/Freehand/Photoshop.

Kind regards,
