Half~Zack Here's a Zero Edit, and Zero for comparison purposes. Let's call the edit 'Half'.

So, I've been told by one person who saw him, that his shirt seems flat, and, that his chest needs definition? But, does a male chest really need definition, when they're not wearing any armor over their torso..?

Yes, they do need definition. As it is, his chest is pillow shaded: otherwise known as "no, bad, stop shading like that." What you'll want to do is have the shading face a certain direction relative to the shape of his chest (pecks and such.) Notice on the original zero sprite how the shading helps bring out the roundness of his chestplate. Additionally, if that's a shirt or some other sort of cloth piece you'll want to put a ruffle/fold or two in there.

Also again you have some palette issues. His shirt needs to either be the same colors as the arms/boots or you need to make it a noticeably different color from them, depending on what you're trying to do with it.
