Create a file named AndroidStudio.desktop wherever you want to be able to launch AS from. Paste the following inside it:

[Desktop Entry]
Version=1.0
Name=Android Studio
Comment=Android Studio
Exec=/path/to/install/studio.sh
Path=/path/to/install/
Icon=/path/to/launcher/icon.png
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Categories=Utility;Development;

Obviously, modify the Exec, Path and Icon fields to reflect the proper paths.
