Well, looks like we might have another MS Paint-ish skin here. Even so, I want you guys to look at it from this particular point of view rather than "OMGZ PAINT! DIE!":
The author obviously knew what he wanted on this skin, but just didn't have the know-how to get it to look right. The colors are flat with no shading, certain parts of the skinmap overlap others (specifically some black parts in the wrong places on the legs and shoulder), and some of the color choice is questionable. But it's obvious the author had something specific in mind when he went about creating this skin, and that gives him bonus points with me.
You all can obviously see the negatives, but consider the positives too. Parts of the armor are clearly outlined and colored, and even without the shading they so desperately need it's easy to tell what they're supposed to be. The author went as far as to change the boots - even the soles - which most people just copy - or retain - from another skin. The author did put effort into this, that much is clear, and for that he deserves respect. All he needs is the proper software, some good tutorials, and a mind to use them.
My suggestions: -If you're using MS paint, don't. If you're using a more versatile piece of software, learn how to use it. -Go find some tutorials for whatever software you're using. Visit the forums for advice. They'll help you. -Go with a theme, as you have here, but go all the way. Samurai's are Japanese - your guy is not.
Just remember that improvement comes with time and effort.

"Why a samurai?" you may ask. Well, it would be pointless if it wasn't based on anything, wouldn't it? It has SOME features of a samurai, so I'm happy... Bugs: None that I know of...
