Quick Sketch on Figures

Black China Marker on 18x24" Newsprint. I copied these figures from the book of Joseph Sheppard, concerning mainly on the gestures and quick sketches than his more detailed drawings. I am looking at more on the directional force of the movement and the applied force,as indicated by the arrows, to the gravity for a more definitive gestures. I learned that exaggeration of such movement is a good tool of showing the artist's idea or interpretation of the gesture. Quit assuming or blindly copying the figures, it suggests that nothing can be learned from it. Understand the action and be clear on interpreting it. Make sense?
