Not quite sure why he has that motion trail there, I think there's a good silhouette here though. Try playing around with details, define his spiky legs and the little arm things sprouting from his head. What's this guy's purpose, service? military?

Think about what he's for and work that into the details!

About the motion trail: i tried to pass a sensation of speed and impact when its going down.
Thx Mystery, i'll think more about what he's for.

On that: The motion isn't enough to impart that, so instead it looks like there's just another layer of him popping up behind him. He's also retracting into himself a bit, instead of the telescoping motion try more of a wobble or rotation thing. Might be harder to animate, but you'll achieve a much better effect!
