    You do a solid job of storytelling through imagery, I can read all of these pages pretty clearly- and for professional work that is one of the biggest criteria they look for. I believe the environmental work in your panels is lacking, however. Your establishing shots don't do a great job of exhibiting space, and you mostly drop the background for gradient colors- which may have been slightly more permissible if the aformentioned establishing shots were better developed. In the close up panels- even with a heavy focus on characters, a little indication of the environment can go a long way.
    "A drawing is not necessarily academic because it is thorough, but only because it is dead. Neither is a drawing necessarily academic because it is done in what is called a conventional style, any more than it is good because it is done in an unconventional style. The test is whether it has life and conveys genuine feeling."- Harold Speed

    Thanks for comment, pall. You right about background, but I look on that this way, if background not important in that panel why should I draw it . I usually draw background when I first draw some scene, after that only when it's necessary. But, in basic, you have right, perhaps I exaggerating in avoid background drawing. Sorry but my language, I hope you understand what I meaning.

    I understand what you mean, and by no means should you develop the backgrounds to the same level of the characters- however the environment can open up more storytelling possibilities, and you can use it's composition to enhance what the figures are doing! Keep up the good work though. :]
