Wisdom - student project

Hi, thank you for these classes and YT tutorials, I really enjoy them, and they were incredibly helpful to me many times. I owe you, big time :)

This is my very first lettering project, I've got another one coming up, but it still needs some heavy refining, so it's just this one for now.

This is one of a bunch of sketches I did, it's one of the earliest versions, but the layout doesn't really change all that much in the process. Sorry for the terrible photo, I really didn't feel like scanning again, so I just quickly snapped it.

So, really rough and messy, a lot alike my thinking process :)

And here's what I have done with it so far. I have used one of your flourishes for now, because mine got messed up really bad, and I couldn't fix them well enough. There is still so much that I want to change and refine, but I would really appreciate some feedback first, so I can incorporate it in the design. Thanks again, this has been so much fun :)
