Baseline figure sketches

So I really do not like any of the above.  But I need to establish a sort of base line in my sketching of figures.  These are tiny in my 3 x 5 sketchbook.  05 Micron Pen and some wc and in the second one I used a Sketch and Wash pencil first.  

Gestural sketching takes a lot of practice…ya have to start somewhere.  My people look "wooden".  

Cathy Gatland is who I want to be when I grow up.
Her gestural figures are wonderful.
Look at her wonderful line sketches of people!!!! 
I mean they look like "different" people too.  
More practice ahead!!!
