Hey someguy i suck at texturing too, but when i export the model to zbrush it is much easier to paint the model, i still suck at it mind you, but at least i know where to paint:lmao:

Update
I have sorta rigged the model to test it's limits on what looks good or not when posed.
Here is a simple walk animation. I had alot of trouble with the feet moving properly.

Hey, i'm not an animationexpert but i think the mech should not have so much hip-movement.
I also think he moves to fluently.
His feet must go straightforward slowly raising the feet and a quick drop and a sudden stop(always wanted to say this :p ).

off topic:
I saw your lord of the rings sketch very monty python man(read compliment)

Thanks,
The animation was to check for any problems with the joints moing.
Unfortunatley the hips have to go like that or else the legs dont move right. I may be able to tone it down a bit. When i get a chance i will work on a more real looking walk. I need to fix up soem rigging probs first.

Ps: the thing in my sig wasnt made by me, i thaught it was funny though.
