Originally I was asked by HRJ over at Lavadip.com
to create an Android-style application icon for his app called SkEye, which is designed to work like Google's sky map, but for use with telescopes. I don't have an Android phone and haven't tried it out yet, but I hear good things about it!
I worked to get the eye looking upwards (skyward) and have it illuminated by the light that would come through the eyepiece, while still maintaining the somewhat muted/matte colors and look that the android apps go for. This is my first foray into non Tango/GNOME-style icons, and I think it turned out well!
