Definitely have my favourites in this bunch but it was time to get some outside help, posted them up on the uni facebook page and begged for some feedback. Luckily a hand full of kind ladies and gents gave me a helping hand.
So it looks like it's definitely the simplest shapes and the strongest poses that people relate to the most. 2 and 3 seem to be peoples favourites, and mine too if i'm honest. Wondering if they can be like a duo or if they need to be refined into the same character. 7's pose stood out to a lot of people as well, from now on I need to try and make sure everyone is in a strong pose no matter how rough the sketch is.
