Blue Sky Storyboard Test

A week ago Blue Sky Studio sent me an e mail asking me if I would take a storyboard test for their studio. I gladly accepted the test. The scenario that they gave me was as follows: Scene:
Two characters are in a waiting room. They are strangers. One characters' actions annoys the other one.
Considerations:Make sure we can understand the characters' personalities. Include some action and comedy. Think cinematic too and have fun!
So this entire week I've been locked away in my room working on this test. I had a lot of fun with it. Below you will find the test that I took. Opinions and comments are gladly accepted. To give a general time line of the work that was done: I spent about 3 days thinking about the scene and what I wanted to do with the characters. In those three days I also did some small thumb nailing of ideas. I spent 2.5 days drawing, coloring, and scanning all of the storyboard panels. And I spent about 2 or 3 hours arranging all of the panels onto several pages. All of the drawing was done using a ball point pen, a felt tip pen, and a sharpie. The coloring was done using mainly Prismacolor and Tria Markers, but for the green color of the frog frog and for the yellow "Do not touch frog" sign, I used Photoshop CS2. All of the editing together was done on Photoshop CS2 as well. Enjoy.

I have a couple of suggestions if you want to hear them, but I think it's a hilarious idea.
