This sprite is from Megaman 8, the main thing I wanted to point out are the color and costume differences.(I know he's an older version of him, but the costume differences are pretty severe) Try replacing that gray with a gray-ish blue and see how that works out. The stance he's in makes me think he's gonna shoot a pretty huge blast, to make that more convincing, you should probably have his hand hold onto his mega-buster from the bottom.

i reduced colors to 8, and went to more cartoony look, rather then robotic/reslistic.

still a lot of things to work on

i dont really have patience for bigger chars... so i made smaller one and attempted doing selective outlines.

added diffusion and worked on his left arm, i'm happy with the results, criticize as much as you want, i will make changes when there's enough crits. thanks

I hate to sound so negative, but I think this has gotten progressively worse with each update.
Especially in terms of colour choice.

The palette is very straight. Some hue-shifting according to a lightsource color, plus a complementary shade in the shadows would be perhaps a good idea.
