The posing sucks.

^^this

Try to ignore ingame effects, try to edit them in with GIMP (free) or Photoshop.

Salem looks more like he´s flying than jumping.

Yup, he looks like he’s either 1. flying, or more like floating, or lying on an invisible platform, or 2. In the first pic, that the texture of the ground makes him look like he’s floating

neither of those are good things. it’s because of the stiffness (he’s completely extended and straight) and the hand that seems to be resting on something.

The other guy’s posing isn’t as bad, but still very awkward. He doesn’t look like he’s shooting at Salem, just holding a hand that has a gun on it. Fingerposing and aiming the gun so that looking from the guy’s perspective you see Salem would help this.

The floppy neck (the second pic guy) looks very sketchy.
