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.
