great mood setting! And I always feel empathy with your characters!To be honest, some of the drawings lack confidence in line quality, while others are much stronger - I think you need to work on a process which can resolve this issue - whether it be in the black and white line work before colour dropping, or two/three tone dropping of single colours to create formI do, however, admire your efforts to complete work on time, and with purpose - I also think this stands a good chance of being exhibited
Yeah I find consistency is a major issue I keep running into. Whilst there's bits of this I'm pretty satisfied with there's others that are definitely shakier.I think I need to simplify- get a really strong balance of black, shading and white, and worry more about overall impact and flow than little scribbly details. I'm reading Jimmy Corrigan at the moment- it's hard to get through but Chris Ware really is fantastic with getting a LOT through with really clean deceptively simple shapes and flat colour. I don't really see myself going completely that direction but I'm bearing elements of it in mind now.
be careful! If anal cleanness is for you, then clowes and ware are great - last year Ben Morgan was very suited to this style - I personally think you are are more in between Jean Giraud and Tardi http://lambiek.net/artists/t/tardi.htmhttp://lambiek.net/artists/g/giraud.htmyou need to make these your peers and aim your sights higher - pressure? Yeah sure lots, but you've got it in you if you want it
