Posing: FRAMING one character's pose with another's

 This is a good technique to use with the others I have been tailing about.
 You can have one character's pose create a frame around the other's.
 The frame is created by the space between the 2 characters.
 This makes the 2 poses easier to read and it looks swell too.

You can also use background elements as framing devices.

The master of this (and other posing techniques) is Harvey Kurtzman.
