I have an idea. How about instead of having a gradient from say black to the red, try a transparent dark green => clear alpha gradient on top of the red? I don't know if that works in on-screen artwork but the way you do shadows in painting is to add the complementary color to the main color to darken it rather than just add black.

From what you suggest it seems same like trying gradient from brown to
red, however, the reason that I didn't liked even darker version was
that it was simply too dark, out of place the other icons.

Or, what might result in the same effect, is make the red a gradient from a darker/desaturated red to a brighter more saturated red. If you limit the total area covered by the super bright red the icon might be a little less harsh on the eyes but the splash of bright color will still preserve the echo bright color palette.

That was precisely what I tried when I attempted making it darker.

Anyway, I've finished other sizes for the orange version, I attach the
PNGs, sources can be find at the usual place [1].

These look so much better, great job!
