People looking for a cutting edge, simple tablet web browsing experience that blends well with the stock iPad look and applications.

Requirements

I'm looking for an icon to represent Hydra, a new innovative way of browsing the web on multiple displays with the iPad.

The icon should be a representation of a hydra, a multi-headed sea creature from Greek mythology.

The hydra should have an odd number of between 3 and 9 heads.

The bulk of the hydra's body should not be showing, instead just its necks and heads should be seen protruding from the water.

A clean, abstract or heavily simplified style is preferred over realistic or cartoon drawings.

There should be no text in the icon.

I am leaning towards using a color scheme similar to Mobile Safari's: a mixed (lightish) blue background with a mostly white image and red accents. This is just a preference though, not a hard requirement.

Icon must follow Apple's guidelines: http://developer.apple.com/iphone/l…mages.html

The icon should not have "shine" (the rounded-corners, drop shadow, glossly overlay) applied as iOS does that itself.

Deliverables:
512x512 png for App Store
72x72 png for iPad
Vector file (ai or eps) for future resolutions.
