    Cute! I like the idea of a kid trick-or-treating at the devil's house.
    One thing that bugs me is the way the tip of the devil's pitchfork is just touching the edge of his stomach.
    You should probably move it back just a tad so it isn't a tangent.

    Nice. I do like the sketchiness of the first version, but this looks good too.
    I noticed that you fixed the pitchfork, but now you made it so dark and sharp-edged that it draws all the attention!
    Also, the devil has a frown, but his shadow seems to have a smile.

    very cute, I agree about the devil's pitchfork and smile.. aside from that though this is a really nice idea and piece. Their is a sense of easiness in what should of course be an uneasy moment. I had to giggle at the "666" on the door! I just hope the kid stops by "777" to make up for it

    1 thing I noticed is the shadows are not casting in the right place ( I think ) or theres an alternative light source outside other than the moon that casts te shadows there.
    The placement of the moon should cast some form of shadow on the ground infront of the door
    and the boys shadow should be coming more towards "us"- just my opinion.

    theres a light right beside the door. Thats probably what the shadows were based on.

    I like it. The only thing that i really noticed and it's bugging me is... the bat shap cut out on the door: the bottom part of the body is not alliend with the top. sorry it was just jumping out at me. besides fot that, all looks great!

    Keep it up!

    The way his mustache almost touches the tip of his nose, forms a tangent for me (i tend to use similar shapes when i draw noses). I like the second version better, it's cleaner, but yeah, check for consistancy. An area that draws attention for me, are the kids feet. They seem so blurry and so is the grass, so maybe tighten it up a bit there; the box makes you look at that area anyways.

    Overall, great illustration. Made me smile. Very very lovely style.
