I like without lines a lot better. Just a personal liking for that kind of pixel. I suppose with line might contrast bettter if the greens of the forest are to simular. buuuutttt, blending in with the forest may suit the character.

I really think the not outlined one is better. All i would suggest for this is to make the face a bit darker so that it contrasts a bit and gives a hooded feel with some cool glowing eyes.

All preference. What you have is great :)

To many straight lines, organic forms are generally more curvey. Especially leaves.

I find the straight lines charming in this case. I love the design. Things that for certain could be better is removing the banding and better AA.  Subjective fixes I'd suggest is perhaps rethinking color and light. I imagine you can really make this character stand out with more glowey and atmospheric light and color. I envision it particularly with more luminescent eyes
