It's rather rough, and I can also see that it's based off some of my old work....but I think you do indeed have potential. You just need to work on it. A city needs at least several days to be worked on - and sometimes it is never complete.

Note that you can change the alpha channel so you can choose which part of the texture is invisible, which is visible etc, so you can change the shape of a building. This does mean that units and trees behind the building look a bit weird, and fire or a garrison might appear in the wrong place, but it certainly looks better.
Just a piece of advice - don't put flags on your buildings. Since they are static without animations, the flags look rather tacky in game. But other than that, you have done a pretty good job. Don't let Velvetclaw's 2 discourage you from making skins - you will improve.
By the way try to incorporate more shading and texture detail. I noticed the main building was just one colour.
