I forgot to CC this when I saw it, so I thought I would sneak it in now before bed.
I think this doll is really cute and the simplified background definately worked out better. It came out very nicely
Something seems off about the grass, but I'm not really sure how grass can be improved. Its a bit of a toughie. Maybe a bit more variation in colour would've improved it? Just a slight highlight along the top, like from the starlight.
The pumpkin outfit is adorable! My one picky point is the shoulders seem a bit high, so the pumpkin seems like its eating its "stalk" in a sorts, but pumpkins are funny shaped and it could be chalked up to that
The top could use a little smoothing out since the cut out pieces seem chunky in some spots, like a sort of circular chunky rather than cut out pumpkin pieces chunky. Just smoothly out the outlines would help with that.
