Re: [Echo] new computer icon draft

Following some of your suggestions I created 4 variations [1]. Firstly,
I added some depth to the monitor, so that it looks more massive,
secondly I made the monitor upright (I noticed my room-mate has a
similarly positioned LCD monitor). And now to the variations:

All of them are good, but some of them are, IMO, better:

a) trying smaller computer - easier to recognise the shape, but it feels
like something is missing...

This one is what I probably like the best. The feeling of something missing is probably due to the large distance between tower and monitor, I would try a more compact layout.

b) normal-sized computer, slightly changed position - better defined
shape than the original, looks better than with the smaller computer

The big tower steals my focus.

c) use keyboard+monitor - this one is my favourite, also has an
advantage of sharing the same metaphor with the same icon from gnome
icon theme [2]

I like it too. Maybe if the keyboard overleaps a bit the base of the monitor?

d) following Mo's suggestions - similar positioning like in bluecurve,
only with echo perspective

Here I feel like a lot of space is wasted.

I attach PNGs, SVGs are at fedorapeople [1]. I've created only 48x48
(time constraints). I will create other sizes when we decide which one
to use.

Thanks for your comments,
