I'm not an expert, but in my opinion there's too much contrast.
In the fourth sprite, for example, i mismatch the shaded brown of the trousers for the black of the boots.

I can hardly see any change... He probably meant there's too much contrast with the black lines?

Well uh I changed the contrast only a bit and for some sprites (first and last one) I didn't change it at all because I thought they'd have the right amount of contrast.
Also, idk about the outlines, I tried changing the contrast but I like the way it is :x
Hope it doesn't sound like I'm blatantly disagreeing to your post ;[

Don't worry. One has the right to agree or disagree with any critique given.

Anyways, the only other thing I see is that they appear to be rather flat, lacking volume and a consistent lightsource; here's a quick edit:


(only messed around with the first three. I don't know if you would want to mix the colors between sprites like I did, but you didn't mention any restrictions)

I'm showing you what i mean:



It's the same as yours, with the same colors & colors count, but i lowered contrast a bit.
Also, check out Sinistral Erim's edit about lightsources & flatness  ;)

Quick edit, just to try make it less flat.

I was guessing your light source was center above. I'm not happy with the way I did the shirt, anyway hope this helps.
