Thank you. Althought I can't take full credit for the Background design I totally stole nearly ever design element idea from a Resident Evil 4 background I LOVE. It's not an exact copy but it's close enough that I'm obviously a hack.
As usual, your coloring is fantastic. When you commit to coloring a scene really well, it always wows me. I'm not sure if I'll ever be that good at using Photoshop. That's definitely your strong point. However, the piece would be much more interesting if Matt and Ian were doing something instead of standing in front of a background. I hate to have to tell you this, but Ian sticking his crotch in the air and smiling at the viewer, eyes wide open, while Matt sticks out his finger disapprovingly... it doesn't make for an engaging scene.
Something I've been meaning to suggest to you is some figure drawing. Go out somewhere like a park that is normally crowded where you can sit down with a sketchbook and draw people. Don't focus on details, just draw their poses as closely as possible. You can draw their poses with stick people if you want to. Practice doing that as often as you can and you'll find that drawing fluid, believable poses will become easier and easier. Make sure you draw poses that you don't normally draw. If you see a guy sitting cross-legged and wildly making gestures while telling his friends a hilarious story, draw that. Once you're able to draw poses like that, you'll be an artistic force to be reckoned with.
Backgrounds are an important part of your piece, too. I know you were upset with how that Elebits comic turned out, and that's partially because it consisted of Travis and the woman standing around in front of a background that apparently was painted in afterwards. Backgrounds are like characters in your scene, and they have to interact with other characters in order to contribute to a scene. If you want to buy Perspective For Comic Book Artists by David Chelsea and brush up on your perspective, that would really go a long way. I know it's a tricky subject, but that book really does a great job of breaking it down. Backgrounds will go a long way toward making your comics a wonderful piece of eye candy.
Another book that I can't recommend enough is Making Comics by Scott McCloud. It has immensely valuable tips on arranging scenes, designing characters, and bringing the people on your page to life. I swear to the very highest of Authorities that it will help you.
