Let's find a place to get lost - student project

Hi guys! 

Here is my first project step. I love traveling. I like to discover new places in the world and sometimes to get lost somewhere. This why my phrase is: “Let’s find a place to get lost”.

July 14, 2015

Inspirations:

Here is my moodboard on Pinterest:

Some initial warm ups:

The first very rough sketch:

UPDATE: 17 july 2015

These days I had some more time to think about my drawing and I redrew it completly. May be it is too much, but I like it this way.:) I think the style of the letters is now much more suitable with the whole picture, the most important words are quite equal and another elements are situtated on the right place. All those things make the picture more logical and cohesive.

Here is the inked image. May be I'll add some kind of shadow to the word "lost" as on the final sketch, but first I have to think about the coloring of this word.

Thanks everyone for the wonderful feedback!

Now let add some colors to the image!

The coloring was the hardest part of the project. I didn't realize how many colors I had to use. So it was  quite difficult to combine the colors with each other and at the same time I had to make the words as much as readable. I think it turned out pretty well:)

I couln't choose the best version. So I let you see the three versions I like the most (may be the second one I prefer a little bit more). What do you think? I'd appreciate all your comments about the coloring.
