I'm not much of a texture painter, but this looks like a good opportunity to learn something. And first impression of the software is great! It's much easer to "get the knack of" than I thought. As for the character, there's two color schemes- One is more "fantasy-ish" and another is something like a "Militant desert dweller". If it was Human, I'd go for the first one as I find it more interesting, although now it feels that the second one is somehow more related to the character itself.
