Figure Drawing from Top to Bottom

I just started taking this figure drawing course at the animation guild from Karl Gnass, he's a great teacher, he's an expert on anatomy but emphasizes the importance of story and character in a drawing. His philosophy to a great drawing is this...
1. Gesture- The best part! The statement of your intent through expression.
2.Conceptual- The hard part and most cerebreal, volumizing and giving dimension and defining shapes.
3. Finish- Now, select your visual field, how to use what I see to tell a story. Emphasis, with organic rhythms and landmarks and muscles and center lines.

I'm posting these drawing to track my progress. Sunny goes to pre-school all day on Friday, so it's awesome to have a whole day to devote to drawing. These are five minute poses.
