... I like the goldish colour of the 'DEUS' text which I think would go nice for the eye logo

Looks good and seems pretty "iconifiable" ;)

Something I made (just a mock-up):

I personally like the grey background with surrounding dark grey and I got that idea from a professional looking Paint.NET's logo. This would display well on any UI colour surface. Maybe the center crescent should also have a surrounding grey too. But is the idea good enough, never mind the mock drawing.

I like the eye much better, but I still think the nubbins that represent the eyelashes should look more like eyelashes! 8)

Hi thibaud

Would you be willing to try a version without the little eyelash nubbins? I just can't seem to warm up to them.

Eyelashes render strange here... no?
I like the logo

What about this icon

without Eyelashes?

Hello,
+1, me too (maybe with a kind of blue spiral into the iris of the EYE , to better meet the spirit of the 1.9X logo ? )

The letters in “xnview” turned out really great.
I also like the effect that makes the reflection on the iris look like an extension of the eyelash:

Thanks for going to the trouble, thibaud. Good to see what it would look like without the nubs.

No. 2 looks like a little girl with a pretty bow in her hair...

...and No. 3 still looks like a Simpson's chicken to me.

Sorry, but I do prefer the first example. Guess I'll butt out now, though, since the tide is against me...

The problem with eye is that users don't recognize easily old icon of XnView, i think that this icon is too different from original...
Pfff i don't know, perhaps i'm wrong...

EDITED:
And could you try to replace in this one

with the eyelashes of this one
