The L is supposed to look somehow like a bird, you will see in the photo;
The letter R is going to be a lowercase "r" that's actually the L letter flipped on the floor, looking like an r but a shadow for the L letter(bird) at the same time.
The idea of the logo is "freedom" , hence the bird.
I'm trying to make it as simple as possible. Don't know if I should make it Black & White or add some color. I'm open to new ideas.
The problem is, I truly don't know how to make this actually look good because i'm supposed to make the r as if it's a shadow, so I must make it look like a light is behind the L and that creates the shadow, making the photo look kind of 3D. If you could suggest me anything I could do to make it look good I would highly appreciate it! I am working in Photoshop CS6.
(The logo is not necessarily supposed to be in a circle)
