A friend of mine suggested I make some changes to the way the “S” connected to the “L,” and I felt she might be onto something. So I tried it out by giving the “L” a slight portrusion on the bottom. And while I was at it, I also tweaked the outlines a bit and flattened the coloring a bit to make it all more even and balanced.
For comparison — here’s the previous version before all the tweaking.
Let me know which version you prefer.
In the meanwhile, I’ll continue with my next project(s).
