It's different from your usual style, but I think it turned out really well! This is definitely a piece that I'd enjoy seeing as a print. Love the composition and lighting in particular. Not to mention that it's a cute scene too. ^_^
I really like this style and that you're still trying something new. Hope to see more of it, when you finish your comic. (My imagination just added some random speech bubbles to this picture, it looks great) PS: I'm surprised that you didn't draw the saliva.
