My biggest sprite yet, I'm pretty pleased with the detailed parts like the head, forearms, skirt etc but the large skin parts like the upper arms and stomage don't look good to me but I'm not sure how to fix them. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Too shiny! He ain't metal, get rid of the aggressive highlights!

On the pecs only or on the arms too? Even the face?

Any ideas of what to do with the belly?

Thoughts (I mirrored part of it because i have to sleep and it is 5 am for me :|, Also I didn't do much to the skirt so ignore that)

All over the picture! Your colors need the most immediate fixes.
For the stomach area, reference some weightlifters. They'll have the proper fat with muscle look to them!

Wow yaomon17 thats amazing!
I tried to learn what I could from your version, especially what you did with the arms and stomach, but also kept some elements that I was pretty fond of like the head, leather wristbands etc. Kept the colors too, I think yours look great but it's to close to what I've already got going on for orcs, gotta keep the trolls away from the greens  :)

Huh. If you're trying to differentiate them, maybe try some blues or greys
