I don't quite know how this is European, but it looks great. :D

I guess I was just trying to make it with muted tones and very simple, clean line style. It's not as open as say a Moebius or Tintin drawing. I don't know, it's just what was in my crowded head.

Or I could be all full of crap. That's a distinct possibility also...

I suppose that's a possibility as well. Here's part of why I might not be getting that--I haven't read a lot of European comics, something that I do want to fix at some point, but I do read a LOT of American ones, and part of it is that a lot of European artists have come onto that field and put their influence on it. So right now "American" comics are starting to be a meld of American and European influences.

But, I could also be full of crap.

I love how you did the lips and for me the nose is an interesting shape. The hair is fluid and the softish yellow coloring is a nice feel.
