I Need Feedback For My Comic Please

I thought this day would never come!

Alright folks I need your help in choosing what style of painting my comic should be done in. The choices are 1, 2, or 3. If you happen to like certain things about some please do let me know.

I gotta say if your wondering this is was the hardest most boring thing to do is paint 1 page dozens of times. I came up with about 6 different painting styles on this and have narrowed the selection to 3 to choose from (the ones not included are not part of the group for the reason either it took too long to render or it looked horrible). Also a quick note don't judge whether the paintings look done or not. Look at what it could be. A good rule of thumb is to look at the top two panels to judge. The bottom panels were done fast.

Here's the details:
Painting 1-Color scheme is more stylized and contrasty. Isn't based on natural tones that go together. Background more rough painted. Characters are bright and colorful with defining strokes. Influence is a little bit of Loish with the blob of color look then I went my own way from there.

Painting 2- Background rooted in neutral subdued tones found in real life rendered close to reality with a bit of messy strokes. Influence is Carlos Meglia. The characters are rendered a bit more vibrantly.

Painting 3- This painting has a traditional painting style to it. Influence was my Rapunzel and Snow White painting style piece. Tones in the piece are muddy.
