I'm not a Linux-libre developer and maybe I don't have much vote on
this... but I would like to say that I like more the version by Rubén

I think that the light blue color gives Freetz personality, sets him
apart from tux and makes him be much more cooler :-P ...else it will
be just tux with cleaning tools.

Also, I think that it also looked better without the line in the beak,
his expression makes him look cute, innocent and pure.

If it is for the sake of ink economy, then maybe a light grey (albino
penguin) version could be easily done, light grey would be in my
opinion much more fitting than black, still keeping him original and
clean-looking. I've attached my version, I've also made a little tweak
on the right wing, to me it looked like in a bit forced position
