The challenge is to make something that represents Pxleyes without actually copying the original logo. Another challenge is to make something which is recognizable at a really low resolution. So I chose the x in the pxleyes logo first because it fills the most space within a square and second because it's easy to recognize at a smaller size. The design duplicates the same theme as the original logo with my own twist. It's supposed to be the x looking at the web address as the light source with a smile. The only thing I copied was the actual shape of the x because I wanted it to match the logo. The rest was remade with the selection and pen tool. (5 years and 2638 days ago)

I tried to make it match with the logo. Used the pupil from pxleyes logo.

Edit: Made background lighter to bring out the details in the 16x16 version. (5 years and 2642 days ago)
