I'm rarelly commenting, but I have tone of downloads from The Hive. Just had a wish to say, I like that recolor over it, I want to say why Hive can't have simple editions in free rotation in the same way with textures? May be it will need a new category like "recolor" in "Resourses" directory. But why not? huh
people above should shut up a little .u. at least those who cry 'recolor'
I for one think you should turn your attention to fixing up the shadows and highlights, adding directional lighting (as if directly from above the model), and solidifying that into a more cohesive texture that won't pull negative opinions with it
i think you should add more stuff about the skin.
-the sword should be glowing or something which really fits your style
-remove the helmet, add brown beard and brown hair or something which really fits your style
-change his armor to peasant cloth or something which really fits your style
