is that supposed to be a hood? I'd say he'd look better without it. Horns and hoods don't go together too well

the lit side of the armor might still be a bit brighter maybe.
and the bright spot on the forehead, maybe that could be homogenized with the lit side of the face (or mask, or whatever it is).

The added contrast helps a lot good job.
I can see a problem, the sword looks like it's attached to his legs, which could be intentional, but doesn't look great.

Robe texture is coming along well, helmet design looks nice.
My spritework can be seen here.

it's nice, but why am I thinking 'planet of the apes' when i look at it is a mystery

TC for the 'skirt' instead of a fixed color perhaps?

Never watched Planet of the Apes actually, but you might be looking at the head, which is shaped like an ape's in some mysterious way.

I would recommend getting rid of the pointy bit and having a smooth curve for the helmet instead, because it makes lots of things other than elves spring to mind.

Sadly, you can't see the difference between the skin and helmet now. This is more what I was thinking of.

looks ok if you don't care about realism (built like this it would fall backwards instantly)..at first I thought it was an aerial vehicle :D
