hehe looks like my hummingbird suggestion finally caught some attention :) but if no one can make a *really* good looking hummingbird logo than i still prefer tribal guy (without robot parts)

humming bird is an nice idea, but the problem comes when you try to make a 16x16 icon of it :P

My contribution...it's based on an image I found on the Web (since it's impossible for me to draw something like this by hand). The original image was just a draft in black and white. I resized them quite a bit, tweaked it and spiced them up with color. Like Boo said, the problem comes when it needs to be resized to 16x16...but I'm hoping someone knows a solution for that. :)

A late entry, but how about capturing the small size and lightness of a seed blowing in the wind?

A stylised icon or an animated gif would be cool .... but I'll leave that to the artists.

"Bland and characterless"? That's what everyone thinks about hummingbirds until THEY'RE ATTACKED BY A FLOCK OF THE AFRICANIZED KILLER VARIETY!!

Bastards are smart, too. About 1,000 of them held me down while one stole my wallet. Used my platinum card to buy new snow tires for his turbo Saab.

No, but serially...

I'd like to see someone suggest a hummingbird with the digital equivalent of just a few brushstrokes. Rough, sorta like the Lucent red "O."

A stroke for the body, another for the proboscis, a few more suggesting the flutter of wings and a splotch of vivid red (or green?) where the throat would be. There. I've done all the HARD work...

I'm actually working on something similar to that at the moment.

I think you might have a winner there BSH. I really like the green one. Those are great, if the decision is to use a hummingbird those would have to be chosen. The only problem is the warrior is unique and could easily be recognized as the utorrent mascot, these however might not be unique enough to do so. Either way we have three very good choices now.

Now I have to switch from supporting tribal guy to support BloodStaindHurricane's birds just to get some credit (at least in my mind :P) for recommending hummingbird for a logo :)

Tribal - Simply awesome. :)

Hummingbird - Like the idea, but reminds me a bit too much of the Mozilla Sunbird project...

Red Blood Cell - Looks good in the "about" window, but the tray icon makes me think antivirus or something.

My "I'm a n00b with the Gimp" submission: It looks OK at 16x16 thanks to alphablending, but dosen't quite pop out enough... I probably need to tweak the color a bit or give it some kind of outline.
