I am drawing here again, because I felt you didn't get to see the real style I draw. Anyways. This is it. My style.

C+C Welcome.

It reminds me of stained glass!
A very uniqe style.

I like.

I think your lines need some work. They're kinda jittery and run past eachother and stuff. A little clean up on the lines would give your next picture a more refined look.

Okay, P_B, you're absolutley right. Does anyone have tips on smooth lineart?

I certainly like the style, I think making the background follow the stained glass effect might be cool......IE- keep it the same but break it up a bit with the lines.....
For smooth linework I build up the pic with the pen tool set at low to medium on the opacity, using small strokes (like you would colour) to make it up to the hardness I require...then use the soft erase (1-2 pixels medium to high opacity) to smooth out any bumps - I might throw up a quick sketch room tutorial on smooth linework this weekend.....:D

Some of the things you should keep in mind while cleaning up line art are 1.) your lines shouldn't cross eachother (like how the line for her chin runs into her hair) and 2.) if the line width varies it should vary for a reason, usualy it's thicker in places where there would be a shadows.
This was drawn with a solid black pencil line just like yours and will show you what i mean if i've confused you
