Let's start out by creating a new file. I used a 300x300 pixels canvas set at 72dpi, and I filled my background with a white color. Now create a new layer set and name it 'Alien Head Logo Design'.
Now select the Polygon Tool, above your screen under the options palette choose Fill Pixels, set the sides to 3 with anti-aliased checked. Then access the Polygon Options palette and check Smooth corners. In a new layer draw a black polygon with 102×77 px dimensions.
Under Layer Style(Layer > Layer Style) add an Inner Shadow and Gradient Overlay blending options to your black polygon layer.
Now create a new layer and draw a dark green polygon with #4B7F00 colour shade and 70×77 px dimensions.
Under Layer Style(Layer > Layer Style) add a Drop Shadow, Inner Glow and Gradient Overlay blending options to your dark green polygon layer.
In a new layer draw another black polygon shape on the center of the current design. Now under Layer Style(Layer > Layer Style) add an Inner Shadow and Gradient Overlay blending options. Then set the layers blending mode to Lighten.
Now add the eyes, first create a new layer and draw a white ellipse with
13 x 26 px dimensions. Then rotate it through Edit > Transform > Rotate.
Under Layer Style(Layer > Layer Style) add an Inner Glow blending option to your white ellipse layer.
Duplicate the first eye design and flip it horizontal then position on the other end of the alien head.
Create a new layer and draw a small black circle on the center of the alien head. Set the layer's blending mode to Soft Light at 38%.
In a new layer add a small black circle inside the eye design. Then under Layer Style(Layer > Layer Style) add a Gradient Overlay blending option to your black circle layer.
