How would you prune this crasulla ovata?

I have this crasulla ovata hummels sunset and it has gotten quite "big/bushy/branching into itself", but I´m unsure how to prune it.
therefor I´m posting here, to hear how you all would prune it, if it was yours.
I´ve added some pictures(for some reason I cant ise image tags, so copy paste the links), so if you would be so kind as to save it down, mark the areas you would cut in paint and then upload it back here. I would be very happy.

Here are the two images you aren't getting to show up properly. I might just suggest, it might not be a 'Hummel's Sunset'?-- Others will chime in to confirm. But it is very bushy, quite nice shape.

I think it looks great, and is fine just the way it is, but that is just my opinion...

oh, how come you dont think it is a hummels sunset?
I have noticed that some of the leafes are turning quite red (its currently under LED growthlights, about a total of 120W) From my understanding it "should" turn yellow during the winter cold temperetur and light?

I was just worried that it might be too all over the place, since it has branches pointing in almost all directions.

No it is a winter grower, It does not like the heat, will turn red/yellow\ in natural light and good air, cold is a must during the winter. Good for you using the right species name. Thank you, Norma
