looks good :)

though the battlemage's cloak would do better with some distinctive outline. My favourite has to be the suarian swamp rider as well 8)

I guess you're not the only one who can make those graphics; I mean, they are not unique by being frankensteinations.

No. It's their poor shading.

They lack a bit definition and indeed some shading.

They're a good start, but very, very dirty. There is far too much inconsitency in color and the shading needs a lot of work. With a little, actually, with a lot of touching up they could look very good.

Indeed, the lack of dark outlines and general shading make them all look... :| not good at all.

As Dragon Master said, with a plenty of finishing touches they can be quite neat.
I wish I had more time in my hands.

Once again, good start, but very dirty. Try looking at a piece of clothing and model it after that for mage robes. The pixels on the robe look just thrown on randomly to form a jumbled mess. Don't get discouraged, I'd have to say that making a convincing looking picture in a 72x72 pixel space is a very hard talent to grasp.
