Swashiness Crit, Please

Hello,

I'm working on a legacy mark to commemorate the 25th anniversary for a St. Louis arts organization. Out of several options, here's the direction my client picked. It's loosely based on Bodoni and Benton Modern.

If anyone could offer some input on how to improve the curves, I'd really appreciate it. Some areas don't feel quite right yet, particularly in the way the swashes above and below cradle the shapes of the numbers.

Feedback much appreciated.

The curves for '2' already seem to work. The connections of upper right an lower right are too vertical: take vertical ends in a bit, and adjust the curves to match.

With 5 you have to work beziers; you want to have your control points aligned, and then you can work the curves.

I think the two swashes should be a bit more wavy.

Could you elaborate on which connections you're referring to? And which parts of the 5 seem misaligned? I'm not sure I follow.
