I really like this animation, though it feels a bit unfinished or rushed. Though i get that life can be very busy so maybe you didn't have a lot of time to iron out what I am going to point out I see wrong with the image.

Pros:
The first half of the animation is great, looks fluid and the coloring is well done as well as the background.

Cons:
The ending of the animation seems a bit... off to me. The landing seems to have no bounce at all (unless there is reason for this), the body would give a little in landing from any height.

Also the drawstrings on the hoodie are bugging me. Given the position that the character seems to end the landing in I think they should be more dangling or forward.

Additional thought:

Maybe add a little extra animation to the image? Like the clouds moving a little would bring it to life more.
What do you think?

Overall, it's a decent piece. The colouring, the consistency, the anatomy, movement etc is well-done.

However, there are several things that are completely off.

First of all, the animation sequence. There are frames missing. That's the why it looks "rushed". More specifically, the frames where the character is getting closer to the ground, and the character landing on the groud (wether it's landing onto something, there still has to be a contraction sequence. No but's), and a the reincorporation sequence (from the reaction from landing up to the moment it reaches the resting position).

Withouth these, it looks like he suddenly warped from far away to right infront of us. You can clearly see it.

Another thing of is the illumination. The guy side we're seeing is landing contrary to the light source. There's an excess of light coming Darwin knows where from into the final pose. No excuses. If is he landing near another light source is no excuse because it's not present anywhere in the animation. And if it is explained anywhere off of the animation, then we care not for it. If it isn't in the actual thing, it doesn't exist.

Frames missing, and excessivelt unexplained light. These are the main issue with this animation.
