It worked for me when I copied and pasted your link. So maybe you should edit your post and put the link underneath your photo for people that can't see it.
Your plot is kind of like a bad joke. Guy walks into his appartment. He chokes.
Panel one's perspective isn't working. Panel two's furnature doesn't look realistically placed. Look at a furnature ad from a newspaper for reference. Panel 3 it took me a long time to realize that was a reverse shot of the couch and his head. And the next two panels, I thought you cut back outside because there was no background. You should have established his face more in the second panel.
Ureference, sketch the world around you, and sketch some rough drafts before you go to finished pencils.
By the way, are you working from a script?

You're obviously very young, so my advice is, for now, to abandon doing any kind of sequentials and just draw. Draw and draw and draw and draw. Go to the top of a building, look down, and draw. Go into your living room, sit down on the couch, and draw. Go into the bathroom, look in a mirror, and draw.
Just draw. Draw. And then draw some more.
The sequential thing will be there later. Right now, just draw.

So, who is this person, that the guy that's choking, is waiting for? Perspectives are tough, especially interiors. You must establishe rules for your views. Heights, lengths, vanishing points. Door heights, chairs and sofas and counter tops heights. In your own home just take a measuring tape and get the heights of everything, use that in relation to the height of the people you want in your scenes. Don't get too uptight about the details they'll come as your observational skills get better. You'll start noticing the relative differences in heights, lengths,and widths of all the objects and people around you. I think the Mods have a list here that includes a book on Perspective. You can pick it up over at Amazon

Study comics and study movies. Hey it helps to have some sort of guide.
