First - Simply too plain. Add proper texture to it. Flat colors are not your friends.
Second, Third and Fourth are good.
Fifth - Same as first, even if its from cartoon add some depth to texture.

I agree with Don Kain, also I personally think that patterns like the ones on your ice and fire armors rarely look good. The mech armor however looks pretty cool in my opinion. Hope this helps.

I like the fire armor. Generally agree about the others...if you could add an alpha channel and some shine to the gunmetal on the first one, that would go a long way toward making it look less flat.

The last one's fun.

I love the MegaMan armor, add some shine to it and it would look sweet.

I generally agree with everyone else, I agree with using a gunmetal shader on the first one, the fire one is ok, the ice one imo looks more like water, mech armor looks ok, and the megaman armor needs to have some shader effects, look more plasticy, just my 2 though.

Add an alpha channel to the first and last and they will be good. It's a good effort, keep at it and read, read, read all the texturing tutorials you can handle :)

i am having difficulty trying to shine the two up a bit i am following the tutorial but just not working. i just need a little help

What are you using to make the reskins. If your using photshop then http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?t=126716 that would be the best tutorial to use.

Is there a specific part you don't understand.

having a little difficult. the armour is what i want to shine so on the alpha channel to color it grey should the armour be black or white. when i try to use the paint bucket it says the target channel is hidden. i do not understand

What program are you using? In GIMP or Photoshop I just add an alpha channel and then turn the whole layer partly transparent. More transparent equals more shader effect.

you should try to make the helmet for the megaman armor! ooh wait i will! oh and the blaster!(fires up his modding stuff)

that would be great if u can make the helmet and the blaster. i think since i used such a broad color on the mega man and knights armour that the shine will not show only if u get close to light here is an example. oh and i changed the ice armour a bit since it did look a little like water and gave it a little more of a icy look to it.
