Agreed with all this. I don't know what tools Jérôme used for his  
first version, but the style of the pen there would be a much better  
fit. Ideally, perhaps it -- or a refined version; I notice that one  
didn't have a "brand name" yet :) -- could be imported as an object  
into Blender, so that the two pieces can be positioned and lit  
together. But I know nothing about the tools or file formats or  
anything.... that may not be feasible at all.

Looking good, Stefan. My one comment on this version would be that the  
blue surface of the T looks a lot paler this time. This may be  
primarily because of changes in lighting? Personally, I'd like it  
quite a bit deeper.... "inky" carries an implication of very dense,  
strong color, IMO. Less brightness, more saturation for the ink, I  
guess. :)

Great ideas and work, guys!
