Sam Project- feedback?

Here is how my double page 'Sam' project is looking at the minute. I'm trying to use photoshop, and its taking a bit of getting used to.

I can visualize how I want my work to look, but doing it digitally and putting it all together,  is something I'm finding a little frustrating. There are a lot of elements I dislike, and little parts which I need to alter, I don't think it quite works at the minute. I would love feedback, I feel a bit stuck after staring at it for so long, I need some fresh eyes to tell me what's wrong with it. I don't know if Im being too critical, but I'm pretty much out of my comfort zone.

So any comments would be appreciated!

So Far...

Playing about with Typography, and brushes.

Sam book project

I am Currently working on a double page spread for the current 'Sam' Picture book brief. For this brief, each person was given a specific line to illustrate a double page spread in a book. My line is

'Leapt over the gap... and then'

We were given the instructions to create a full colour character, who lives in a black and white ( and half tone) world. We were also given a very specific stripey top, which our character 'Sam' would have to wear. Sam also had to wear bright red, Converse trainers.

I haven't posted any roughs of my work because I'm a bad blogger.  I should do at some point, but I thought I'd upload a few character paintings. I'm going about this in a silly order, I know.

 Character Position one
 Character Position two
 Character Position three
Moons one and two... paint tests with crackle medium. Chimney Idea.

Editorials 3 - 'How to be Conceited'

I've been stressing over this Editorial so much, after all the time I've spent on my editorials, I feel extremely, disappointed in how they've all turned out. This one more so. I feel as if its a step backward, I've learnt a lot from doing it. Hopefully for the next brief, my final piece will be more successful. I definitely hope to revisit this, and redo another piece time for the january deadline. 

Editorial 2 -'How to undo things'

Editorial 1 - 'Why Small Victories matter'
