Great work on the Reno sprite. He si really shaping up now. Much better than the first version.
As to the portrait, you might want to erase the two bangs at the top left part of the portrait, they just ain't fitting.
Genesis body is gettin good, but the shouders are weird indeed, kinda as if they were too low or something. I assume you used Dante from JoT5 sprite as a base? It has the coat you are looking for pretty much.
Edit: I looked closely on the Reno portrait. Few things worth mentioning, is that you need to get proper palette first. You are way over 16 colors, yet have only 5 skin shades, which makes it hard to work with. The trick to save up some colors when doing red head portraits, is that darkest reds and browns can be shared, since they look pretty similiar. Try looking at my Succubus portrait for example. Make sure you use existing palettes of course. Smash started doing a portrait tutorial once, where he had great skin palettes all ready. It's somewhere in the spriting section though. I also included a small edit to the face and hair, but I cannot do much without a proper palette. Still, you will get the idea of how a face should look with all the fixes.(small size only)
