Nice, I love the concept! Some rendering suggestions:
* The color on the center of the Skype logo is much more green than the rim; it feels like they are two slightly different materials and it looks "off". It's much better to keep your colors consistent throughout a material.
* In parts you're relying on this hue contrast to make the shape intelligible-desaturate it, and the readability disappears. That makes the shape difficult to parse at a glance. Value contrast always comes first.
* You've shaded the inside portion of the S at a lighter value than the rim [because of the color difference]. This is confusing; people instinctively see a lighter, more saturated value as "higher" or closer, so the raised bit should be lighter.
* Your drop shadow layers aren't blended together enough; you have the shadows correct [large drop shadow and a dark thin AO shadow near the edges] but they look like two different shadows rather than one smooth one.
Here's an edit to show what I mean. I'm away from home and have to use PS instead of GIMP so pardon the sloppiness ;)

This is wonderfully thoughtful and unique. Great work @Artua
Really amazing work!
@Ollin We appreciate your time writing all these comments, however we have achieved our goal and don't think that this icon requires any further improvements.
Thanks for suggesting anyway.
Nice idea, but isn't too much for the dock icon? Or it has some other proposes?
@Tim Yes, it has other purpose rather than dock icon, thanks.
@Eddie Lobanovskiy Thanks :)
Great work mr.!
I wanna taste it
Really nice. I like the angle of it. It seems unique/refreshing.
Drooling over this design!
I love this...very cool idea.
Awesome icon ***
Shouldn't there be a pin or some other mechanism holding the three pieces together at the back where it swivels? Maybe it's a magical Skype icon and defies physics :)
Woah! That's lovely candy style, m-m-m, delicious :)
Like this idea, and good implementation :D
Thats some cool idea! :)
