You're right, things closer will generally "feel" heavier and therefore have thicker weighted lines.

There are numerous tips for different styled effects. The nibs allow for a brush like feel with the control of a pen.
Again, good luck.
I got that mixed up actually, I meant to say that the other way around concerning the background/foreground. You're 100% correct though, I definitely need to work on my line weight, I just have noticed alot of improvement within the recent months that I haven't really noticed much of the little things.
By tilted, I mean that the "camera" position isn't directly centered in the hallway, but is placed more towards the left. And after discussing this, I can certainly see that it overall looks wrong.
I have tried brushes before. In fact, I own several "pocket-brushes", which I like because there's no clean up. I agree that it's a good thing to learn, especially considering my stuff doesn't have alot of kinetic energy going on, but still, I've seen awesome stuff with just pens. Not to say that I wouldn't be able to learn from the use of them, or that my work wouldn't improve with them, but for now I just have them on the back burner.
I appreciate the interest in the pages though, it's a constant learning process and I think the comics community, especially, understands that people need that interest and advice to grow. So thanks guys! haha
