Okay, so as I look closer, I see that the armour -is- coloured (or textured at least). Um, oops. 10

At first glance, the metallic touches really don't show up well (in this JPEG anyway)... maybe you could throw some more gradations of tone on the armour for more contrast. Overall, it's fairly pale and it could probably use some more dark areas.

Nice to see (mostly) in colour. I like the palette of browns you've chosen... I'm not big on the "airbrush" style of photoshop colour-shading usually, though it -really- works on that glove! Maybe a stronger tool for the shading elsewhere? Anyway, that's just personal preference. Hope to see that armour coloured soon! 2
