hey all,

I'm new to SVG since today and for what I saw I'm very impressed ...
I started making a logo in SVG with some tools (jasc webdraw...) but I
don't fully understand the code it generates.
I want a reusable and scalable logo (it doesnt scale right now, how do I
do that?).
it should become a black circle with an alien head in it.
I dont think the left and right side are the same... but I dont understand
the code 100% so I cant adjust it manualy.
Can anyone explain the code from the path or give me a tutorial? I know
what the 4 points are (top, left, right and buttom) I used, but I dont
understand the "C" thingies (and how to modify them)

this is what I have so far
I want to keep it as simple as possible
The only thing missing are the eyes
